Hove Spartans win in U16s league

This match was a real dogfight against an aggressive forward focused Worthing team who fought hard for every ball. Worthing competed at every breakdown and their forwards carried well. To hold them out we needed a great defensive performance and we delivered that to keep our third clean sheet in a row. Tremendous effort lads for the full 70 mins.

Attack was difficult. Both sides had a strong D, 35 penalties were awarded and 2 yellow cards issued. Opportunities for flowing rugby were in short supply. But the momentum started to shift our way with a penalty kick from Lennie - the only score in the first half. In the second half, we were able to maintain better possession, to apply pressure and to unpick Worthing's defence. We scored 2 well-worked tries as a result of wearing down Worthing. Both tries converted giving us a 100% kicking record.

Congratulations boys, great character, still marching on!
