Match Report
Truro School Boys-U12A vs  Pool Academy
On: Thursday, 28 Mar 2019
Venue: Away

A great 7s tournament at Pool Academy. We won our first match of the pool stages after going 1-0 down to Richard Lander we fought back to win 2-1, with a brilliant defensive effort in the second half. We then played Hayle and Mounts Bay who we beat both teams quite convincingly. Three wins out of three meant we topped the group and played our local rivals in the quarter finals. We started brilliantly and ran in two early tries that put Penair on the back foot. Penair fought hard but Truro managed to pick them off winning 6-1.

Semi-final - vs Helston. A slightly daunting task ahead given the size of the South Sea Islander who lined up against us. Unfortunately he was as strong and quick as he looked. He managed to bump off our biggest tacklers and run in a couple of tries. Our boys rallied well and gave everything to push for a win but in the end we lost 5-2.

To kick us when we were down, Richard Lander whom we beat in the group stages made it to the final and came runners up to Helston.

A brilliant day with excellently behaved boys who will, I can almost guarantee, be county champions one day in their Truro School years. Well done boys!!
