Saffron Walden under-15s go on the attack


Saffron Walden under-15s began the defence of their county cup title with an emphatic 56-0 win over Peterborough.

Noticing the large size of the home side’s pack, Walden tried to move the ball wide at every opportunity.

Their forwards worked very hard at the breakdown to provide quality ball for the backs, with four tries scored in the opening 16 minutes by wingers Olly Davies and harry Mitchell.

Hugo Carey got in on the act on the stroke of half time with a powerful break to make it 27-0, with Ollie Langton starting the second-half scoring with a superb finish on the wing.

Walden had to absorb some pressure as the hosts rallied, before scoring four more tries in eight minutes through Harry Vincent-West, Ming Sang Ho, Josh Shear and Fraser Murray to the delight of coach Adam Miles.

Finn Thomas was named man of the match after some excellent distribution from scrum-half.
