The boys put in a huge effort today and were completely dominant in our first game of the season.
Royston took a firm grip of the game right from the start and were two tries to the good within the first 5 minutes. Backs and forwards combined well to stop all attacks that Cambridge put together.
Particularly pleasing was the determination not to let Cambridge score even when Royston were under pressure; they tackled hard and forced turnovers every time Cambridge looked like they might get back into the game.
The real difference between the teams was the speed with which Royston were able to recycle ball at the breakdown. Despite Cambridge having a big pack they were neutralised by the speed our U14’s moved them around the field.
The final score was 42 – 12 with Royston running 8 tries.
