Tourists beat the local team with confident display

Bicester under 12's came to Banbury on Sunday morning and put on a confident and organised display of excellent rugby, leaving our boys struggling to find a response.

Banbury were using rotating teams against the visitors, but sadly none of them could find an answer to the strong running game that Bicester had come with.  Even with some excellent solo performances from Banbury's up and coming stars, the overall team play from Bicester was just too much.

Banbury 0 – 30 Bicester

Numbers pay as Banbury U11s beat Bicester

Two tries each from Josh, Ben and Callum seal victory in the third game of the day. By this time the fresher legs of Banbury have the edge but Bicester still want to play and haven’t given up despite the scores in the preceding games.

Bicester played with real rugby spirit. Their boys never gave up, never showed a moments ill grace and worked together as teams throughout. The Bicester coaches were constantly exhorting the players to have fun and were truly supportive regardless of the score.

Today Banbury were too strong for the travelling Bicester squad but our opponents should go away proud of their efforts. Well done Bicester, you are a credit to the game.
