The U17 development squad welcomed Dorset & Wilts on Sunday to Bodmin RFC, where we played two games, allowing both teams to use all their squad, reports U.17 Team Manager Paul Howard.
In hot conditions, the first game was a close affair with the Cornwall side show glimpses of quality with some good line breaks, but in the end Dorset & Wilts took the win with a late try from their centres, who were the difference between the two sides.
Final Score : 12 – 17
Tries : Court, Conroy Conversion : Staddon
In the second game, Cornwall made a fast start scoring a try in the first few minutes, and then controlled the game throughout, keeping possession for long periods. This allowed Cornwall to pick and choose their opportunities and take a comfortable win.
Final Score : 17 – 5
Tries : Bennett, McKnight, Riggs Conversion : Pellow
The U17 development squad has now completed their games for this season, and the Coaches now have a hard job narrowing down this development squad to the final U18 squad. A big thank you for all the boys making themselves available at the end of a long season.
