Old Haberdashers' RFC
The 2015/16 league season continued on Saturday 3rd October with a double header for the 1st and 2nd XV at Hampstead. Unfortunately both sides lost. The 1st XV lost 26-12 and the 2nd XV more heavily 60-10.
The 1st XV were slightly weakened in the pack and had a few people playing out of position in the backs. We looked dangerous for most of the game but were very inaccurate. They were a decent side with a good back row and scrum half and they turned us over a lot. We still created enough chances to be in the game but didn’t finish them and the scores we gave them came at crucial times and were a bit soft. In particular 2 tries in the first 10 minutes which they didn’t have to work for.
The 2nd XV ended with 13 men and ran out of resistance towards the end as the injuries took their toll.
The 1st XV dropped from 3rd place in the league to 7th, although both early runners (Harpenden and Hammersmith & Fulham) also lost which means the league is slightly out of synch at this point of the season, it will settle in a few weeks as form becomes more established. At the moment only 2 points seperate the top 7 teams.
Next Saturday the 1st and 2nd XV play another double header away at Welwyn - all support is welcome. Welwyn are currently 3rd in the league, 1 point above us, but lost heavily to Hammersmith & Fulham in the first match of the season and have had two relatively easy fixtures since. We should be looking for a good win assuming we have a more representative side.
