Cambridge University Colleges XV v Welsh Academicals U21

Cambridge University Colleges XV V Welsh Academicals U21

On Saturday 12th November a Welsh Academicals Squad drawn from a wide selection of colleges travelled to the Grange Road ground in Cambridge for a fixture against their counterparts at Cambridge University. The players and non-playing representatives received a warm welcome both on and off the pitch but the excellent quality of our squad led to a rather one sided encounter. 
From first to last the Accies side produced a display of power, precision and attacking intent that the home side were unable to contend with. They tackled gamely but with little possession and the quality of running, passing and support by both backs and forwards representing the Accies a big score looked likely from very early on. Some of the offloads produced by a scratch side with just a short pre-match training session behind them were superb. The first half saw 9 tries scored from various passages of play including an early try from a scrum with a home put in that was driven back off the ball at a rate of knots to allow our scrum half to touch down. The rest resulted from direct running, slick passing and excellent support play. Try scorers in the first half were Sam Roberts, Tom Aviss, Alex Ryan, Lewis Dennett, James Gahan, Ryan Bevan (2), Jacob John and Griff Whitson. Fly half Lewis Dennett added 7 conversions for a 59 points to nil half time score. 
The second half saw a repeat performance with 9 further tries being run in and 5 of these being converted. All substitutes had a least half of the game and the second half scorers were Jacob John, Benji John, Ellis Jones, Sam Maggs, Sam Roberts (3) and Owain Collard (2). The final score was 114 nil and thanks must go to our game hosts who stuck to their task and the referee who handled a game played in good spirit very well.
We were fed at the ground and speeches made before checking in at our hotel to watch Wales beat Argentina. Committee and players then headed out into town for a very enjoyable night out in the magnificent setting of Cambridge centre.
