Match Report
Taunton School Boys-U16A (SCA) vs  Sherborne School
On: Saturday, 07 Oct 2023
Venue: Away

A severely depleted team was never at the races on a beautiful afternoon with a wide pitch to suffer on. Conceding a try in the first minute set the tone for a depressing first half which ended with Taunton 38 points down. To their credit, the boys rallied to score three second half tries but it was too little, too late. If we continue to exhibit such defensive naivety and indifferent commitment to tackling, the season will feel long and hard. Monty Wells was our best player but few others really stepped up to the mark.

Next week we should have some injured players returning for the testing trip to Monmouth where I would hope to see stiffer resistance against another strong side.
