KRFC U13's V Crusaders
By Stewart Holford
Good morning with the tourists
A bright & sunny morning brought with it the Crusaders from Norwich on Tour. Three 20 minutes sections of play, here's a short summery of the morning.
Crusaders brought the sun, fantastic outfits, enthusiastic parents & a great bunch of lads ready to play rugby. The first 20 was a very tight affair with play changing sides, Crusaders were a very physical side & put KRFC under pressure most of the first section of play. KRFC ran in a few good tries with Crusaders not quite putting away all of their opportunities.
Crusaders started to flag a bit especially with Kettering being able to swap a complete team & bring on fresh legs. Some good running tries by the KRFC boys.
We loaned Crusaders some players to help with their substitutions. Crusaders came back all guns blazing for the final 20 putting multiple tries past us.
Crusaders progression since we played them last season was quite astounding, a great team of lads who are force too be reckoned with.
Tries: Fred 3, Max 1, Ben 3, Oran 2, Will L-W 1, Fraser 1 & Toby 1
