The Under 14s (Saxons) hosted Wallingford on a damp, autumnal feel day down in The Dell.

A joint training session with refreshers on tackling, rucking and ball handling was carried out followed by the two forward packs coming together to work on scrummaging and the addition of the wing forwards was beneficial to both teams.

The match was split into four quarters and the first two quarters were really close with nothing to choose from between two combative and aggressive teams.

The Saxons pulled away from the visitors in the third quarter and probably just edged the fourth quarter.

Worthy of note was the interplay between the back row and scrum halves, some pretty decent scrummaging and hard aggressive running from the Saxons back line.

Also they had to kick goals which went very well considering the conditions the match was played in.

Credit to Wallingford for keeping going after what was probably a late night on the Saturday for them and to the referee and his assistants.

There were plenty of plus points for the Saxons and also plenty for the coaching team to take into training sessions on Wednesday nights and Sunday before thier next match away at Heathens on the 15th September.
