In this week’s U18 County 7s Rugby competition, Langley did themselves proud. Read the match-by-match account to find out how they go on:
Langley 47 – 5 Springwood High School
Outstanding defence and some impressive attack resulted in a comprehensive win in the opening game. Langley’s attack went from touchline to touchline with players unselfishly releasing each other into space.
Langley 24 – 12 Easton College
Despite a physical Easton side, Langley controlled the tempo of the game well and took the opportunities in the second half. Discipline was also important both in attack and defence.
“Full credit to our Langley team who did themselves and the School proud.”
Langley 7 – 36 Greshams
A score the slightly flatters the opposition but they created and exploited space out wide, which Langley struggled to adapt to after more direct attack from the previous games. However, Langley student’s admirable character and workrate continues to be a reoccurring theme to the delight of coaches Mr Wheeler and Mr Lockwood.
Semi final: Langley 0 – 41 Wyndham College
The score doesn’t reflect the effort the Langley boys in. After a gruelling schedule they were still connected in defence and kept the ball positively in attack, but fatigue led to missed tackles and the opposition were clinical with the ball, finding mismatches or space.
Full credit to our Langley team who did themselves and the School proud. Mr Wheeler concludes, “In my biased opinion, Langley scored the try of the day vs Springwood, playing total rugby that the All Blacks or Blitz Boks would be proud of.”
