Junior Colts start with a win
A mix of 17's, 16's and 15's bell on debut!
Wellingborough's Junior Colts hosted Peterborough on Easter Saturday at Cut Throat Lane in the first Colts game of March! We thank Peterborough for travelling and those Wellingborough Boys that pulled on a red and yellow hooped shirt! Boro started well and scored tries early through Ben Plowman, Dom Shaw, making his return from his school side. As the half ended Boro's play became scrappy and Peterborough nearly capitalised on lack of intensity, concentration and tackling.
Half time saw a change of Wellingborough players in a Peterborough shirt and it Harry Shipman now playing at 9 for Peterborough who scored next. Peterborough then scored again under the posts before Wellingborough gained control again with the final score being 55-14.
The game once again showed that at Colts you cannot afford to miss tackles or cough up the pill cheaply or you will be punished.. DotD was Flynn Anderson, he had a calm game apart from one short moment! Man of the match was not presented as a number of boys played for Peterborough but all the lads played well especially the 15's that stepped up, special mentions go to Rio and Tom though... No Colts training this week, next up Percy Park from North Shields..... ??
