Match Report
Worth School 1st XV vs  Reigate Grammar School
On: Saturday, 30 Sep 2017
Venue: at Home

Worth started brightly on the first half with plenty of possession and passages of strong attacking play. However, as the half wore on a lack of composure was costing Worth scoring opportunities. Matt Redferne looked somewhere near his best with some strong ball carrying up the middle, while Ollie Taylor and Ben Ritchie were handful with their good footwork. However, it was up front where the first points came from, a strong driving maul from 10 meters out saw Tim Riley dive over. Harry Bhattacharyya converted nicely from the touch line. Worth should have then pressed their advantage but lacked the finishing ability. The second half started brightly again with some strong ball carrying from Matt Brown and Arturo Moyà. It was on the back of one of these strong carries that Worth scored their second try, Gillis Sinclair showing a good turn of foot as he stepped through the defense to score under the post. Again, Harry stepped up and added the extra points to give Worth a 14-point lead. This is where one hopes that the flood gates would open but sadly composure was lacking in the final third of the pitch. The Defensively the boys were outstanding for 68 minutes, strong line speed and effective tackling with own small lapse in the final play of the game to allow Reigate a consolation try. It is positive that the boys were frustrated by the winning margin after the game as it means they know they can do better.
