Nailsea & Backwell Under-12s and Old Bristolians took part in two well-balanced matches.

Nailsea and Backwell Under-12s played Old Bristolians in what was a balanced match with some great rugby played by both sides.

The first match was drawn three tries each and both sides were able to build sustained pressure when they had possession with very few mistakes being made.

The second game was won by Old Bristolians four tries to one, three of the tries coming from ripping the ball from N&B players and moving it quickly to break away. The Nailsea and Backwell try was scored by Alfie in only his second competitive game for the club.

Play was stopped at 11am and everyone gathered outside the clubhouse for a moving service and minute’s silence which was welcomed by all.
