A great game of rugby to finish the season saw the u17s share the Plate 33-33 after extra time
Royston lead from the start amassing 19 unanswered points. They were pegged back in the second half which was helped when they were reduced to 14 due to a yellow card. 19-19 going in to the final minutes and Royston regain the lead 26-19. Hemel attack again and the game finishes 26-26.
That should have been the end but the Ref played extra time which was outside the competition rules. The first 10 minutes saw no scores. The second period of extra time saw Hemel take the lead for the first time in the game 33-26 only for Royston to equalise 33-33.
The game finished a draw and both teams share the Plate. A great game to finish the season.
It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
