U11 Rugby v Grantham Prep

The U11 boys’ Rugby team was on the road this week, visiting our neighbours Grantham Prep. With illness taking its toll on the team, it really was a squad effort as Will and George were drafted in to complete the line ups. After a tight opening 10 minutes, Olly made the break through darting under the posts, however the lead was short lived as Grantham hit back with a try of their own. This only served to stir the Highfields effort, as Arthur and a penalty try, gave Highfields a 3-1 lead at half time. The second half was more straight forward, as Highfields began to find their rhythm, picking holes in the opposition defence. Tries for Arthur, Angus, Shahid and Olly capped a fine win. Shahid, Kyle and Bertie also slotted conversions to take the final tally to 41-5. Well played, all!
