Taunton School Boys-U18A (1st XV) vs  King's College, Taunton
On: Wednesday, 29 Sep 2021
Venue: Away

The first round of the NatWest Schools Cup saw Taunton School 1st XV play an away match against King’s college. The match began with Taunton making plenty of ground through powerful carries by the forwards, thus enabling our flyhalf Antonio to claim three points by drop goal. A frustrated Kings side managed to ‘open up’ the field, allowing them to play their brand of free-flowing, flamboyant rugby, consequently, they scored the first try of the match. Taunton rose to the challenge however and responded by scoring in the corner, the try being attributed to strong ball carrying from the forwards and sharp lines from the backs. The match proceeded with Taunton scoring one more try, and Kings grabbing a brace and ultimately the win. In spite of a few missing players, the Taunton boys brought physicality and resilience against a powerful Kings side.
