LWU17 start with defeat after epic defensive battle


LWU17 start with defeat after epic defensive battle

London Welsh Under 17 started with a defeat at the hands of Finchley, who are a league above LW this year. This was closer than the score suggests and LW were camped in the Finchley half for most of the first period but just could not get the break through. Welsh had Alex Riches making a very welcome return to the Red shirt and we also welcomed back Maks Szejko who missed most of last season through injury. Everyone played their part and at half time incredibly the score was 0-0.

Second half Finchley started better and capitalised on some poor defensive play in our own 22 and they went under the posts. This was out of keeping with the rest of the play though. Heat was getting the better of the teams along with a very firm ground.

Bursting runs from Finn Carter, Finn Collins, Cameron Fraser, Kyle Isidore and Paul Green all promised to get a break through but we just couldn't get past their resolute defense.

A couple more tries for Finchley put them 19-0, but still LW kept coming back. Gabriel SINGER and the pack forced us closer and finally Alec Brundle went over for LW solitary try. Jack Shingler duly converted and that was the end of the game.
