Youth rugby round-up

Dees U13s coast to easy win

Dunstablians U13s coasted to an easy 38-5 friendly win over Daventry despite a strong wind and over-zealous refereeing.

Dees fielded several squad players and two boys playing their first game for the club and, despite never getting out of second gear and several misplaced passes, led 12-5 at half time.

They played much better rugby in the second half and some good passing moves allowed Dees to score four times in a stop-start affair.

Former flanker George Bayes impressed and scored in his new role at outside centre, Marlon Burton touched down on his debut and Liam Gadsden also impressed in his first appearance for the club.

Mixed results for Luton U11s

Luton’s U11s enjoyed a mixed weekend, losing to Verulamiums 14-7 before beating them 21-7 in a rematch.

Struggling with their scrum, Luton fell behind early on in the first game, but managed to get better ball in the second half thanks to good work by Niall McManus, Mark Fee and Eion Finnerty.

George Hand, Joe Moss and Mason Burnett defended well but they couldn’t stop Verulamians scoring again.

Joe Ladley ran half the length of the pitch to get a consolation try and Stevie Rourke converted, but it wasn’t enough.

Luton again fell behind early in the second game, but good work by Zac Allen, Kieran Barry, Dermot Collon and Roma gained Luton territory as Ladley ran in another try.

There was then a try for new boy Mark Morrison after some good pressure from the forwards.

A quick tap enabled Rourke to go over to seal victory, as he converted all three tries.

Man of the match Ladley also ran over half the length of the field to make a try-saving tackle a metre from his own line, forcing the Verulamiums player to drop the ball in the process.
