Match Report
The Manchester Grammar School 1st XV vs  Bolton School Boys Division
On: Saturday, 30 Sep 2017
Venue: at Home

On a damp and miserably wet Saturday morning Bolton visited Mgs in the hope of producing an upset. The visitors have always been a difficult side to play against and continually throughout the game gave us problems. Their direct approach, keeping the ball close the their large pack makes it difficult to get the ball back as they usually have lots of numbers at the breakdown and therefore keep the ball for long periods. Once Mgs started to move the ball a couple of passes away from this contact area we started to get some joy in the open spaces with a quicker back line. 5 excellent tries during the match from Tomek Pozniak x 2, Aryan Takiar, the impressive Ollie Hill (who was drafted in at the very last minute) and Tom Pye saw a comfortable score line. Luke McCreth completed the scoring with a 100% success rate from the tee including 2 superb touch line conversions.

Man of the Match selected by Joe White: Elliot Gourlay.
