Match Report
Marlborough College 3rd Colts vs  Radley College
On: Saturday, 11 Sep 2021
Venue: at Home

A good training fixture with which to begin the year, Saturday’s 3rd Colts’ XV match against Radley was an excellent reintroduction to contact sport after nearly 2 years’ hiatus. The game conditions progressed from touch in the first quarter, to full contact tackling with uncontested breakdowns and set pieces, to near-normal rugby aside from the scrum.

Radley proved the better-drilled side; nevertheless, all boys did well to play their first competitive rugby fixture since the Shell. Many were evidently delighted to be able to play contact again, with outstanding committed tackling from Sam Cooper and Thomas Wilson.

We look forward to the return leg at Radley at the end of the season.
