U11s and 12s in the Land Rover Cup

The U11s and 12s travelled to the Stoop to play in a tournament and watch Quins play Worcester

“these festivals are all about development and we felt that all our players will have benefitted from playing against different and tough opposition in a very different setting. A great day!” U11s coach Nick Summers

Lewes U11s had a great day at what coach Nick Summers "perceived to be a super festival." Whilst only playing three matches, each was 20 minutes long, meaning that Lewes had lots of match time.

The competition was tough with there being teams from all over the south. Lewes were placed against Reeds Weybridge RFC, Old Reigatian RFC and their Sussex compatriots, Heathfield and Waldron. Lewes ended up beating Heathfield and Waldron whilst narrowly losing to the two Surrey teams. According to Summers, these the two Surrey sides should have "blown Lewes away", but particularly against Old Reigatians his side, after giving a couple of easy tries away at the start, out rucked and out muscled them for long periods.

Almost all the tries Lewes scored today were team tries, with many players involved in the phases leading up to the score. It was a pleasure to watch. Summers concluded that "these festivals are all about development and we felt that all our players will have benefitted from playing against different and tough opposition in a very different setting. A great day!"
