Buzzards 2nds 55 – 10 Stockwood Park 2nds
A new side studded with old warriors and brilliant young talent turned out for Leighton Buzzard rugby club second team on Saturday 18th September.
Buzzard started well with sustained pressure and some strong carries from Euan Irwin and Ryan Eaton being converted by their quick stepping backs.
The forward pack made light work of the Stockwood scrum and line out and this pressure and intensity paid strong dividends in the first half.
Second half the visitors put up a strong resistance to the Buzzards pressure with two great tries of their own. However the incredible offloading game being displayed by the playmakers in the Buzzard side eventually broke the Stockwood Park defence.
Man of the match Ollie Taylor was the quick stepping maestro at 10 making scything runs and intelligent kicks keeping the Stockwood defence at sixes and sevens.
A strong performance all round from all the squad made it a very good day at the office for the winning side!
Tries came from: Euan Irwin (2), Ryan Eaton (2), Gary Low, Jack Cullen, Jake Wheeler, Jacob Dove, Wayne Chapman
