The Earl's school resumed rugby today; first match of the new term was against Riverview

Barkers' Thirds (under 12) played Riverview's lads in a tough game this morning. What a beautiful winter's day under brilliant blue sky and crisp morning air!
Barker boys in the blue and red.

A line out

Dan the Man scored our only goal. Here he is tackling an artful dodger. The Earl is far right.

Nathan loves his line-outs. We won most of them which helped our team keep the pressure on Riverview.

We won most of the scrums too.

Matthew makes a break for it.

But the boys from Riverview had bigger lads to our smaller and faster team so we nearly always lost ground in mauls. See The Earl second from left put all his weight into it.

Even outnumbered by 3 players Barker kept at Riverview but, alas, it wasn't enough.
Riverview score two tries and two conversions for 14
Barker one try and one conversion for 7.
Daniel scored our only try & conversion. The Earl came away with the Ticker Award (player with the most heart in the game)
Well Done Riverview it was a great game that had the crowds cheering like mad.
