Stamford Colts 10 Oadby Wyggs 22

STAMFORD Colts put out a combined U16, 17 and 18 side against Oadby on ytheir final game of the season.

The blustery conditions were not conducive to running rugby but both teams coped well and the game proved to be a good spectacle.

Stamford took an early lead with a try in the corner but were soon pegged back and Oadby took a 12-5 lead in to half time.

Oadby scored again early in the second half but Stamford fought back and the second half was an evenly matched affair with Oadby running out eventual winners 22-10.

The Stamford squad, which was mainly U16s, coped well against older opposition and were praised by the visiting coaches and referee.
