Age Group: U15 Fixture / Result:Friendly (Home) Saturday, 10th April 2010 London Scottish 19Pays Six Fournais 8 On a beautiful Spring Saturday evening, the U15s welcomed a French touring team from Toulon to the Athletic Ground for the chance to enjoy some end-of-season running rugby. Within two minutes the French team went into a 0-3 lead, following a penalty award at the breakdown. A high-tackle 3 minutes later gave the opportunity to double the lead but the kick fell short. This sparked the Scottish team into action and gradually the U15s started to get some possession and territory. The first serious attack fell just a ten metres short but from the penalty Louis drove to the line and was just stopped on the line. The play continued with both sides trying to run the ball with most of the play taking place between the 22s. The Scottish team looked slightly more threatening in attack but the French tackling was immense and thwarted many an assault. It was not until the twenty-fourth minute that another quickly taken penalty resulted in a score for Daniel I under the posts. Kieran converted the score to put the Scottish team in front. Pays Six Fournais came straight back at Scottish and kicked the ball deep into the Scottish 22. A quickly taken line-out was cleared by Kieran but the return kick from the French allowed Ollie – guesting at No 8 – to launch an attack. He ran the ball back to the Scottish 10m line and of-loaded to Joe G. Joe, carrying the ball in two hands, went on one of his mazy runs which continued all the way to the posts for the second try. A great length of the pitch score. The second half continued in the same vein as the first, with both teams creating good attacks but defence was solid. The next score again resulted from a quick-tap penalty, this time Adam going quickly off the mark before passing to Ollie on a perfect line to go under the posts for the third score. The French came back and were rewarded for their perseverance with the final score of the game, a well taken try by their centre wide out on the left. The match was played in good spirits throughout and although there was plenty of aggression on the pitch both sides deserve credit for putting on such a good spectacle.
