Mia and Pippa celebrating their win against Sussex

Saffron Walden RFC duo Mia Richey and Pippa O’Marra both had starring roles in the Eastern Counties U15s’ 31-20 triumph over Sussex U15s.

Richey notched two second-half tries while O’Marra added the extras for three of Eastern Counties’ five scores.

Counties dominated the first half with three tries but after a half-time pep talk, Sussex came back with a vengeance with three efforts in an outstanding 15 minutes.

The game culminated in a hard-fought battle mere inches from the Sussex try-line with Eastern Counties getting their final try of the game within minutes of the final whistle.
