Taunton School Boys-U18A (1st XV) vs  Prior Park College
On: Saturday, 18 Sep 2021
Venue: Away

On Saturday the squad travelled up to Bath for our second away game of the season. With a good week of preparation before hand and a strong team run through the day before the boys felt prepared to take on our opponents. After a swift warmup the game begun, Taunton struggled at first and this was evident from our lack of execution in the final third and high penalty count. As the time ticked on the team went behind by 7 points after an impressive solo try from the prior park captain. However, the boys got behind each other and got back at it, with some close contact work the forwards managed to keep running through the prior park defence and slowly making ground before Devrim Tarr got over the line in a pick-and-go to get our first score. With motivation and encouragement behind us Taunton soon after scored again with fast hands from the back line putting Antonio Alvarez over in the corner. With the full-time whistle gone Taunton won the game 12-7 making it two wins from two. We look to improve going into next week’s home fixture against QEH.

Tries- Devrim Tarr and Antonio Alvarez
