Match report 14/10/2018
Fareham Heathens V USP
So parents this week have taken over the match report i.e. Lou and Jane.
Fareham Heathens parents woke up to torrential rain and we all awaited that text that Rugby was off and we could all stay in bed. However it was not meant to be and after an exciting match and the first win of the season it was a great day for all.
Darren was right and at 1130 the rain had cleared, and Heathens were up for game with no subs!
The first try was very quick, and We don’t know who scored it due to lack of concentration on our part (turns out it was Oscar!), however no conversion was kicked as we had no round thing (a tee I believe now)
Charlie had a nice run and Will took the ball and then Charlie scored a try!
10-0 missed conversion by James
USP came straight back at us to try and conversion scored
Really great Heathens work lots of brilliant team work and Charlie scores again.
15-7 conversion missed by James
Charlie doing some great kicking, running catching.
Dom grabs the ball and bull dozers through TRY for Dom
And Charlie scores the conversion
Multi-tasking watching and typing becoming difficult hats go off to Heloise/Darren from all parents on the side line.
Jacks getting excited too and barges through the USP parents and coaches to see what’s going down and sounding (maybe looking too) like David Bellamy
Dom now steam rollers the USP catches the ball passes to Charlie who scores. Josh is down as boot on the head.
Conversion by Charlie
Josh off for a bit ice pack on eye.
Good low scrums by Heathens really bending their knees. Fantastic runs by Jayden throughout this first half.
Oscars a little sore now in the nether regions but nearly half time and josh still off.
Half time great score: 29-7

My phone has died so over to Lou…
It was Charlie, drops the ball with no player within 5 metres. It’s all over ?
So from a parents point of view amazing team work and you all looked like you were enjoying it. Parents loved it.
