An exciting match in the fine setting of Hurstpierpoint college.
Team Middlesex U16s got off to a good start and with some well won line out ball, put pressure on the home team. Despite having the quality possession two chances went begging, which would prove costly against good opposition.
The next 20 minutes saw Sussex at its best as some sound possession saw the home side run in three converted tries. Middlesex did score a great team try on the 22nd minute which went unconverted. Two more converted tries were scored by the home team, which gave the home side a 35 points to 5 deserved, half time lead.
Coach Dave Mobb Smith, made some half time changes which allowed a different approach to be employed. There was some better continuity found by Middlesex allowing centre Ronan Maloney to score his second try which went unconverted. Sussex had the final say as 3 further tries, were scored, which put the final score of 54 – 10 in favour of the home side.
