Match Report
Radley College Boys-U14B vs  Bedford School
On: Thursday, 21 Sep 2023
Venue: Away

Ahead of a well-deserved rest at exeat, the boys travelled to Bedford on a sunny afternoon. The focus this week was rucking and it was pleasing to see the Radley boys replicate in a match situation. It was clear there was going to be a clash of playing styles - Bedford sending big carriers in the narrow channels and Radley attempting to play the ball out wide. Radley made it 14-0 at half-time. After the break, the boys needed to raise standards and despite a sudden downpour, they raced out of the blocks and strung together some effective plays to end the match 42-0. The tackling was again excellent and it was nice to see the boys express themselves in attack as the ball got to the wingers on numerous occasions. A solid performance and hats off to Bedford who never gave up and kept going at it.
