Team Middlesex Match Reports
Team Middlesex v Sussex U16s
|Date:||8th January 2017|
|Venue:||Old Merchant Taylors|
|Result:||Team Middlesex 64, Sussex 14|
Middlesex put in a splendid display of running rugby at Old Merchant Taylors ground on Sunday 8th January 2017.
This game followed on from a fine performance against Berkshire at Maidenhead on Wednesday 21st December 2016. It was thought the Christmas lay off would result in a below par performance for both sides. This was not the case. The game was a spectacle with 12 tries being scored, 10 of them by Middlesex.
Sussex started the game strongly with a fine running converted try. Middlesex soon got on top of the proceedings however and scored 6 tries in the first half, 3 of which were converted.
Both teams made a number of changes after the Interval and it was Middlesex who came out on top. With some powerful forward play, the set scrummage gave them a solid base to launch their back play. Middlesex scored a further 4 converted tries, and Sussex completed the game as they started, with a fine try.
Scorers for Middlesex were Ademuwagun Anjolaoluwa x 3, Luke Green x 2, Ossama Aslam x2, Edward Lewcyznsky, Jamie Miller, and Jack Jesty.
Middlesex next game is against Hampshire on 22nd January 2017, Venue tbc.
