Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School 1st XV vs  The Oratory School
On: Wednesday, 04 Oct 2017
Venue: at Home

This match was almost like deja vu of our previous game against Aylesbury. We started the first half slow with Oratory running hard at our defences with some strong ball carriers. We fell off tackles, tackling too high again, which put us under a lot of pressure. However, Paddy Spiers again kept us in the game with some excellent try saving tackles to keep us in the game. Josh Maier and Euan Morgan scored to keep the game close for 10-12 to Oratory at half time. The second half was a different story and this time it was Stuart Boyd who stepped up to the plate with some excellent runs and strong tackles going in. Stuart Boyd was clearly on a mission having not had much game time due to injury and is hunting Josh Smart for the number 8 jersey. Some strong set piece and plenty of possession allowed the backs to run in some good tries through James Rogers and Paddy Spiers. Final score 32-19.

Man of the match: Stuart Boyd

Try Scorers: Josh Maier, Euan Morgan, Ed Martin James Rogers and Paddy Spiers all got a try each. Will Dexter converted two and got one penalty.
