Rugby v the North of England
27th January, 2015
North of England Lambs XV
The boys were up for a very tough game against a strong and very physical North of England Lambs XV. If, before the game, a spectator was to look at sheer size then everybody would have quite simply written off the MCS/Cargilfield side.
Due to the lack of practice over the last couple of months due to the Scottish weather the boys took 10 minutes to get into the game, seeing the North Lambs scoring three tries with the conversions to add.
The second half was a different story, however, seeing the boys bouncing back with Farkie W from Cargilfield scoring a brilliant team try. We finished the game 5 tries to 1 down.
A brilliant effort all-round.
Northumberland Select XV
A similar story was seen in the Northumberland Select XV, with the boys playing some fantastic rugby, especially the MCS front row of Chris S, Ben W and James L who scrummaged brilliantly.
Throughout the whole game Jonny M and JP C tackled brilliantly and created a threat to the Northumberland backline. The MCS boys should be proud of a brilliant performance throughout the day and also conducting themselves off the pitch to the highest level.
