Sheffield Tigers 6

Buxton RUFC U12s 0

THE BUXTON Under-12 squad, made up of both under-11 and under-12 players, was always going to be a hard match for the Tigers’ well-drilled under-12 team.

The last time these two teams met was at the Matlock Mini Rugby Festival last May, with a tough but close-fought match in the semi-finals, Tigers eventually winning.

Sunday’s match started with Tigers taking an early lead with the first try scorer getting past the Buxton backs with some great passing down the line.

Tigers scored again, but Buxton fought long and hard with some great rucks and mauls to keep their opponents away from the try line.

Despite the efforts of the whole Buxton team, Tigers found the gaps and took advantage.

Buxton fought hard all match and should be proud of their team effort

Buxton: Ashton, Bromley, Currey, Doig, Eley, Finney, Lyster, Morten, Swain, Sweeney, Wood, Godfrey, Norfolk, Ryder, Ryder-Dawson, Sisson, Thorpe. Man of the match: Angus Doig.
