On Saturday 19 August the Stanford u/15 Rugby team played in the Verseeker Beker semi-finals against Christiana from the North West. It was a beautiful day for rugby and neither team disappointed the many parents and supporters who turned out to watch the game. Our juniors dominated their opponents throughout the 1st half, with some highly impressive running rugby, with a 21-5 lead going into half time. Christiana came back with a bang in the 2nd half and managed to pin the Stanford boys back in their own half for the rest of the game, scoring 4 tries to just edge past our u/15’s. the end result was 42 – 28 to Christiana however, the result does not show how close the match really was. This has been a fantastic season for the ‘Baby Badgers’ and has set up the 2018 season very nicely. Well done to the boys and Coach Bex, we are looking forward to next season.
