Match Report
Radley College Boys-U16B vs  St Paul's School
On: Saturday, 30 Sep 2023
Venue: Away

Once again a bright start from Radley, with tries from Barnes and Braybrook. A failure to take advantage of the St Paul's implosion and infighting, nor play the referee, kept things to 12-0 at half time.

Into the second half and another Barnes try, converted by Braybrook, made it 19-0. But this is where the wheels started to come off and Radley nearly paid the price for profligacy earlier. A couple of injuries, a yellow card and laziness/gormlessness in defence gave St Paul's a sniff and they came roaring back with two converted tries. Had the game gone on for longer it might have been a different result.

The narrow pitch highlighted poor lines of running, but also covered up for those not defending with the team. Progress but still plenty to work on ahead of sterner tests.
