Old Halesonians U16’s travelled the short distance to Dudley Kingswinford RFC for their first match in two weeks. The lads were keen to maintain their recent form with another win and from the off they took the game deep into DK’s half. An early lineout was well taken in the air, passed out as far as Henry Thomas who made his now trademark serving run through the opposition to score the team’s first try of the day under the posts which was easily converted by Tom King and Old Hales were ahead 0 - 7 after only 4 minutes of play. 

DK kicked off and the ball went long and deep into the arms of Louie Prosser who ran it right back to the halfway line and offloaded to Mike Essex who charged through the DK defensive line. The ball was passed to Dylan De Sousa and another try was scored. Jack Law successfully converted. A few minutes later Jacob Saul made an impressive run of his own, passed the ball out to Dylan De Sousa who scored again and with Jack law making another successful conversion 0 - 21. 

Old Hales were on fire. This time Henry Thomas received the DK kick, running up the field, passing the ball to Louie Prosser who in turn offloaded to Jacob Saul who scored and the Old Hales total rose to 28 as Jack Law put another kick between the posts. 

DK dug deep and there followed an extended period of attrition between the opposing Forwards. Oscar Crocombe put in a couple of crunching tackles to frustrate the opposition attack and we slowly drove DK back to their try-line. Both Aiden Whilby and Harry Fussell almost got the ball down, but eventually the Referee took us back for a scrum, Tom King fed the ball out to Dylan De Sousa who added another 5 points to his personal and the team’s tally. 

With the clock ticking for half-time an Old Hales lineout deep into DK’s half saw Jacob Saul run in his second try of the match, which Jack Law converted for a half time score 0 - 40. 

The second half saw a number of substitutions by Old Hales. Will Ford came on and made some excellent tackles and Jack Law showed real pace in repeatedly running the ball back into the opposition half, frustrating DK’s repeated attempts to kick for territory and eventually resulting in Aiden Whilby getting a well-deserved try of his own. Final Score: DK 0 - 45 Old Halesonians.
