Boys turn in impressive display against Cranleigh

A superb display against Cranleigh saw Epsom winning or drawing two-thirds of their matches. After a difficult morning rearranging the 1st and 2nd team matches from away to home, it was pleasing that both sides turned in good performances, winning both games well.

The 1st XV eventually showed their class to stretch away in the second half, as three tries and an excellent performance from George Addington (Rn) took them to a 25-8 win.

The 2nd XV kept a clean sheet and showed some enterprising counter-attacking rugby winning 21-0. Two tries came from James Webster (Fa) in a dominant display.

The U16As competed well in their match with Olaiya Adeniji (F) carrying the ball with purpose all game but succumbed 33-20. The B team won well, though 19-10 thanks to sterling performances from Josh Savigar (Rn) and Tristan Barrington (G).

The U15As’ good form continued with a 21-0 win set up with an impressive uphill first-half performance, while the B team drew a classic Chud match 24-24, where the slope again proved crucial in the outcome. Oliver Hughes (G) scored twice in this match.

The U14As lost a close match in the dying moments for the second match running, despite Kit Temperley’s (Rn) best efforts.

The other U14 sides all won, however, with the Bs winning a close game 22-17.

The Cs maintained their unbeaten run with a great all-round display winning 28-0, while Harry Pearson (H) scored three tries, Harry Boxer (G) and Luka Woods (Fa) two apiece in a welcome 47-12 win for the U14Ds.

U13 and U12 v Hampton.

Hampton proved too strong for the U13 and U12 A and B sides, winning comfortably in each game, but lessons were learned and great spirit shown throughout, with Connor Mullen-Brandler (Hu), Tomas Harrington (GH) and Louis Simmons (Hu) standing out.
