Match Report
Hurstpierpoint College U15 vs  Christ's Hospital
On: Saturday, 27 Nov 2004
Venue: at Home

Christ's Hospital provided stiff opposition in this fixture, with their commitment at the ruck and in the tackle particularly noticeable. It took Hurst 15 minutes to put together enough meaningful phases to score their first try. There was some terrific competition for the ball on the floor after the tackle and both sides gained several turn-overs. Christ's Hospital passed the ball wide at every opportunity but the strong Hurst tackling and organised defensive line coped with the pressure.
A smart move down the blindside ended with a try in the corner for Dom Smithers and a further penalty meant a 15-0 halftime lead.
The second half saw Hurst dominate territorially but several knock-ons and determined CH tackling meant that only one more try was scored.

Man of the match: Ed Bowden
