U18 Lambs continue to roll with emphatic victory over Goshawks

ISRFC 81 – 15 Goshawks


A brutal second half display allowed the Independent Schools National U18 side to run away 81 – 15 winners against the Goshawks on Wednesday.


It was a tough start for the Lambs in their most physical game of tour so far, however they matched power with power and after some barn-storming runs from Jack Edwards (The Leys) in midfield, the ball eventually went out wide through some slick offloading to allow Tom Jones (Hymers) to cut in under the posts after 5 minutes.

In an end-to-end opening to the game the lead was short lived, the Goshawks responded with a short 5-meter lineout and unconverted score in the corner after 7 minutes. Once again though, the Lambs responded and it was Jack Edwards on the ball once again, this time getting himself over the line after Elliot Roofe (Colfe’s) had done the hard yards on 10 minutes. Goshawks didn’t seem rattled and only two minutes later scored another set piece try, a training park move putting in the blind side winger under the posts, who finished superbly. 12 minutes in and the score was 12 – 12, with two tries each.

Both teams then tried to tighten up their defence, however 5 minutes later Roofe scored his third try in three games with a big carry off a quick tap, a carbon copy of his first try of tour.  The Goshawks kept themselves in the game with a penalty on 25 minutes, the Lambs ill-discipline threatening to put them under unnecessary pressure once again.

The turning point in the game then came as on the half hour mark prop Ben Christie (Bristol Grammar) carried 40 meters and beat five men, including a Jason Robinson esq swerve on the fullback, to score under the posts. Immediatley from the kick off the ball was moved wide where Jonny Allan (Solihull) made a line break before giving the ball to Will Potter (Kings Taunton) to sprint 30 meters before offloading to fullback Will Pepper (St Peter’s, York) who finished well in a tight spot. The half time score was 31 – 15 and the momentum was with the boys in pink.
The second half then saw a superb show of attacking intent and ability, Will Potter scored two tries in the opening 5 minutes, one untouched from 50m out for the second game in a row and the other some superb interplay before Guy Snowball (Portsmouth Grammar) finished off a simple 2 v 1 to put the speedster in. Six changes then saw the cavalry come on and tried from Jack Tinker (Hymers College), Sam Rossiter (Pangbourne), Patrick Tarleton (Cheltenham College) and Juyin Olojeyemi (Culford) put the game to bed. However, there was still time for Will Bailey (Clayesmore) to add to his tally before Man of the Match Jack Edwards scored his second of the game to wrap up a 81 – 15 victory and put out a marker to the Presidents XV on Friday, the Zimbabwe U19 side.
National Director Alex Laybourne said: “I am very happy with the performance today, we stepped up a notch from the first two games and have a very powerful squad of 29 out here with us. The second half was particularly pleasing as we never took our foot off the gas”

Man of the Match – Jack Edwards (The Leys)

CAPTAIN'S MATCH REPORT - Game v Crawshays

Ian Billington

Captain’s Match Report

LAMBS XV 12 CRAWSHAYS WELSH 8

On Saturday in some adverse weather conditions the Independent Schools  National XV played a extremely competitive and well structured game against Crawshay’s Welsh. With Crawshay’s impressive record of international representatives having pulled on their shirt the game was bound to be well fought from the outset.

The game started with both teams trying to play running rugby but they were up against both wind and rain preventing a flowing game. This however did pose an opportunity to show our potential up front at scrum time. We proved on Saturday that a mobile pack is not at a disadvantage in the scrums with our front row causing havoc led by Angus Smith at tight head. This gave us plenty of clean ball and ball won against the head. However this was not capitalised on. We soon found ourselves 3 points down after a penalty kick from in front of the posts.

The Lambs tried to not let the weather get in the way of our ‘fast and free’ game plan. But unfortunately we went in at half time not only a man down after Matt Warren was sent to the sin bin for a continuation of team offences but also a try down as Crawshays scored a unconverted try in the corner. Leaving the score 8-0 at half time.

Half time gave a moment of reflection on the half and a chance to reconsider the desire for victory. The Lambs came out after half time with flare and exhilaration. It did not take long for half time substitution George Adams to put his mark on the game, with an impressive display of pace on the wing he broke though the almost watertight Crawshays defence and with a well judged kick  put Josh Gray into the corner to make the score 5-8. Confidence was high and fly half Elliot Croft made a break with a piece of individual brilliance. Elliot drew the full back and put George Adams under the posts which was then converted by Croft leaving the score at 12-8. The remainder of the game would turn out to be an anxious 20 minutes. An 80 metres charge from one of Crawshay’s wingers was dragged down 5 metres short of our try line by a brilliant covering tackle from David Elliot. With another 2 yellow cards going against us the 13 men on the field battled to keep Crawshay’s out.  This was to great avail as the final whistle blew with 12-8 on the scoreboard.

Saturday’s game was a great display of passion and desire to succeed in victory from the team. Well done to everyone who played, we know it wasn’t a game to show off attacking prowess but one to offer an opportunity to exemplify great team spirit and pride to be wearing the pink shirt.

Man of the Match: George Adams

LAMBS XV V CRAWSHAYS - Coaches Match Report

On Saturday 9th February players from the depths and breadths of Britain came together as the Independent Schools National XV ‘Lambs’ side to face up against Crawshays Welsh, an invitational club representative side made up of Welsh players. Maidenhead RFC was once again the venue and their magnificent 4G pitch allowed for open, running rugby by both sides - despite the constant rain.

 

Both sides took an attacking approach to the game, with Crawshays having control of the game in the early stages and running at every opportunity. However they could not break the Lambs white line and eventually settled for three points after a number of penalties on 10 minutes. The poor weather conditions meant there were plenty of handling errors, yet it killed neither sides ambition to play open and attractive rugby - the result of which was a try in the corner for Crawshays, unconverted, to take them 8 points ahead towards the end of the half. This spurred the Lambs on and they then built some pressure towards the end of the first period, however they were unable to convert a number of good chances and their attacking intent was stifled even further as Matt Warren was sent to the sin bin with two minutes remaining of the half following a number of team offences.

 

A number of personal and positional changes at half time meant the Lambs came out with renewed vigour. This the led to a twenty minute golden spell as the Lambs continued to break the gainline and build pressure on Crawshays. Eventually a clean break by winger George Adams from a set play on the Lambs 22, followed by a chip ahead as he approached the covering back three, allowed Josh Gray to scream ahead to dot down. The kick was unconverted to take the score to 5 - 8. This was followed minutes later by a clean break from Elliott Croft, created through his own excellent footwork, to then let provider become scorer as George Adams finished off an easy two on one under the posts, converted by Croft, to put the Lambs 12 - 8 ahead.

 

The Independent Schools XV then looked to put the game to bed, and a yellow card for Crawshays and a penalty ten metres out looked to be the end. However, the ever battling Crawshays took an interception from the tapped penalty and ran 80 metres, only to be dragged down 5 metres short of the line. As the Lambs looked to turn over the ball Mike Peek was alleged to have killed the ball and was duly sent for 10 minutes in the bin. This then led to a battle of attack and defence and the Lambs defended their line with complete passion, pushing Crawshays backwards on a number of occasions. But once again Crawshays fought back and but for a cover tackle from the excellent George Adams they would have been over in the corner. The pressure continued to build on the Lambs try line and a number of penalties led to a third yellow of the game, taking the Lambs down to 13 men for the final minute of the game.  

 

The Lambs held out for that final minute to record their second win out of two. It was a great performance from both sides in poor conditions, with both defence and attack having their moments to shine in what was ultimately a great advert for rugby and some of its up and coming stars of the future.

 

George Adams was named man of the match by the Lamb’s coaching team.

MATCH REPORT - Captain's Exiles Report

Exiles match report from Captain Iain Billington

The English Independent Schools XV played our first game against the Irish Exiles on Sunday. We set out to play expansive rugby with the ball in hand. From the first whistle to the last we played with this mentality running in tries from all areas of the pitch with the intention to keep the ball alive whenever possible.

Ill-discipline on our part gave the Irish Exiles the early advantage as they run in a tap penalty from 10 metres out, this gave us a well needed wake up call. After regrouping under the posts we quickly responded with a flurry of tries lead by Josh Pieterse and Angus Hardy. As the first half came to a close Cyprian Owen Edmunds capitalised on a poor defensive kick and went over in the corner followed by a length of the pitch try from Charlie Banks showing off some brilliant feet darting through the Irish defence. Half time score 24-10. A comment from the referee at half time summed up the game as he asked me to speak to the Lambs requesting us to ‘run a bit slower’.

The second half was one for the archive; the forwards were breaking tackles and offloading excellently. This gave us room out wide to put winger George Adams in space to score. Replacement Fly half Freddie Chalmers converted from the touchline to give the Lambs a healthy lead. The game began to open up and with some great team moves performed at breathtaking pace tries came from Liam Fitt, Matt Retchless and David Harrison making the final score 52-15.

A brilliant start from everyone who played, I was most impressed by the Lambs ability to offload confidently to players that before the match, had only briefly met, let alone played together. Well done to the entire team and I hope we can work on a few things -especially discipline, before the next game to ensure we put on another great display of champagne rugby.

Man of the Match: Josh Pieterse
Tries: Pieterse, Hardy, Edmonds, Banks, Adams, Fitt, Retchless, Harrison
Conversions: Croft (3), Chalmers (3)

MATCH REPORT - Game v Irish Exiles

Match report from coach Alex Laybourne

On Sunday two teams aiming to play exciting, open rugby took to the field on Maidenhead RFCs impressive 4G pitch as The English Independent Schools XV, also known as the Lambs, started of their 2013 campaign with an emphatic win over a good Irish Exiles team

The Irish started the strongest, getting on the front foot and behind the defensive line with a good offloading game. Their early pressure was rewarded with a score from a quick tap penalty 10 metres out. This only spurred on the Lambs side and despite a number of line breaks leading to little but territory, they stuck to their game plan and eventually Man of the Match Josh Pieterse got over the line for a converted try, before turning provider for scrum half Angus Hardy to go in under the posts just minutes later.

In a pulsating opening 20 minutes the Irish Exiles then scored a carbon copy of their first try with another score in the corner from a quick penalty. The last 15 minutes of the half was end to end rugby and a try in the corner from Cyprian Owen Edmonds was scored before a length of the field score (for arguably the try of the game) by Charlie Banks gave the ISRFC Lambs a 24 – 10 half time lead.

The second half brought with it a raft of changes, but both teams continued to run with ball in hand and stuck to their attacking based philosophies. After a spell of pressure the Lambs scored another length of the field try, finished off by George Adams, before back rowers Liam Fitt and Matt Retchless added two tries in quick succession. Th Irish continued to exert pressure and were justly rewarded with a try with five minutes to go, before David Harrison finished off a great day for the ISRFC Lambs with a try in the last play of the game.

The final score was 52 – 15 to the English Independent Schools National XV, with the fixture providing plenty of entertainment for the on-looking crowd as the Lambs stuck to their philosophy of playing ‘fast and free’. The next fixture for the Lambs is Saturday 9th February, once again at Maidenhead RFC.

NORTH U18 IN CLOSE WIN OVER HYMERS COLLEGE

The North U18 Lambs played their part in a thrilling encounter with Hymers College on Sunday as part of their Centenary celebrations! With only a few minutes left on the clock Durham School winger David Elliot completed his hatrick to give the Lambs a 19-15 victory. Miles Lloyd of Sedbergh also chipped in with a vital 4 points from conversions!

Nick Gandy, Master i/c rugby at Hymers commented “…..the match was keenly contested and played in a great spirit. The Lambs stayed true to their philosophy of running with the ball at every opportunity and were rewarded with three excellent tries.”

Many thanks to Nick and Hymers for allowing us to be part of their Centenary celebrations.

NORTH TRIAL - Updated Venue Details

Leeds Carnegie have said that Kirkstall is unplayable so we have moved the trial to Leeds Uni, Weetwood pitches. They are confident that the game will be playable on their pitch but they do have a 3G pitch as well just in case. If you have “mouldies” it would be helpful if you brought them just in case we have to go on the 3G pitch.

Timings are still the same.

Directions to the pitches are shown below.

I am aware that a couple of you might not have received the email I sent a couple of days ago.  Please check for further information regarding the trial.

U18 Lambs continue to roll with emphatic victory over Goshawks

ISRFC 81 – 15 Goshawks


A brutal second half display allowed the Independent Schools National U18 side to run away 81 – 15 winners against the Goshawks on Wednesday.


It was a tough start for the Lambs in their most physical game of tour so far, however they matched power with power and after some barn-storming runs from Jack Edwards (The Leys) in midfield, the ball eventually went out wide through some slick offloading to allow Tom Jones (Hymers) to cut in under the posts after 5 minutes.

In an end-to-end opening to the game the lead was short lived, the Goshawks responded with a short 5-meter lineout and unconverted score in the corner after 7 minutes. Once again though, the Lambs responded and it was Jack Edwards on the ball once again, this time getting himself over the line after Elliot Roofe (Colfe’s) had done the hard yards on 10 minutes. Goshawks didn’t seem rattled and only two minutes later scored another set piece try, a training park move putting in the blind side winger under the posts, who finished superbly. 12 minutes in and the score was 12 – 12, with two tries each.

Both teams then tried to tighten up their defence, however 5 minutes later Roofe scored his third try in three games with a big carry off a quick tap, a carbon copy of his first try of tour.  The Goshawks kept themselves in the game with a penalty on 25 minutes, the Lambs ill-discipline threatening to put them under unnecessary pressure once again.

The turning point in the game then came as on the half hour mark prop Ben Christie (Bristol Grammar) carried 40 meters and beat five men, including a Jason Robinson esq swerve on the fullback, to score under the posts. Immediatley from the kick off the ball was moved wide where Jonny Allan (Solihull) made a line break before giving the ball to Will Potter (Kings Taunton) to sprint 30 meters before offloading to fullback Will Pepper (St Peter’s, York) who finished well in a tight spot. The half time score was 31 – 15 and the momentum was with the boys in pink.
The second half then saw a superb show of attacking intent and ability, Will Potter scored two tries in the opening 5 minutes, one untouched from 50m out for the second game in a row and the other some superb interplay before Guy Snowball (Portsmouth Grammar) finished off a simple 2 v 1 to put the speedster in. Six changes then saw the cavalry come on and tried from Jack Tinker (Hymers College), Sam Rossiter (Pangbourne), Patrick Tarleton (Cheltenham College) and Juyin Olojeyemi (Culford) put the game to bed. However, there was still time for Will Bailey (Clayesmore) to add to his tally before Man of the Match Jack Edwards scored his second of the game to wrap up a 81 – 15 victory and put out a marker to the Presidents XV on Friday, the Zimbabwe U19 side.
National Director Alex Laybourne said: “I am very happy with the performance today, we stepped up a notch from the first two games and have a very powerful squad of 29 out here with us. The second half was particularly pleasing as we never took our foot off the gas”

Man of the Match – Jack Edwards (The Leys)

CAPTAIN'S MATCH REPORT - Game v Crawshays

Ian Billington

Captain’s Match Report

LAMBS XV 12 CRAWSHAYS WELSH 8

On Saturday in some adverse weather conditions the Independent Schools  National XV played a extremely competitive and well structured game against Crawshay’s Welsh. With Crawshay’s impressive record of international representatives having pulled on their shirt the game was bound to be well fought from the outset.

The game started with both teams trying to play running rugby but they were up against both wind and rain preventing a flowing game. This however did pose an opportunity to show our potential up front at scrum time. We proved on Saturday that a mobile pack is not at a disadvantage in the scrums with our front row causing havoc led by Angus Smith at tight head. This gave us plenty of clean ball and ball won against the head. However this was not capitalised on. We soon found ourselves 3 points down after a penalty kick from in front of the posts.

The Lambs tried to not let the weather get in the way of our ‘fast and free’ game plan. But unfortunately we went in at half time not only a man down after Matt Warren was sent to the sin bin for a continuation of team offences but also a try down as Crawshays scored a unconverted try in the corner. Leaving the score 8-0 at half time.

Half time gave a moment of reflection on the half and a chance to reconsider the desire for victory. The Lambs came out after half time with flare and exhilaration. It did not take long for half time substitution George Adams to put his mark on the game, with an impressive display of pace on the wing he broke though the almost watertight Crawshays defence and with a well judged kick  put Josh Gray into the corner to make the score 5-8. Confidence was high and fly half Elliot Croft made a break with a piece of individual brilliance. Elliot drew the full back and put George Adams under the posts which was then converted by Croft leaving the score at 12-8. The remainder of the game would turn out to be an anxious 20 minutes. An 80 metres charge from one of Crawshay’s wingers was dragged down 5 metres short of our try line by a brilliant covering tackle from David Elliot. With another 2 yellow cards going against us the 13 men on the field battled to keep Crawshay’s out.  This was to great avail as the final whistle blew with 12-8 on the scoreboard.

Saturday’s game was a great display of passion and desire to succeed in victory from the team. Well done to everyone who played, we know it wasn’t a game to show off attacking prowess but one to offer an opportunity to exemplify great team spirit and pride to be wearing the pink shirt.

Man of the Match: George Adams

Tries: Adams, Grey

Conversions: Croft (1)

LAMBS XV V CRAWSHAYS - Coaches Match Report

On Saturday 9th February players from the depths and breadths of Britain came together as the Independent Schools National XV ‘Lambs’ side to face up against Crawshays Welsh, an invitational club representative side made up of Welsh players. Maidenhead RFC was once again the venue and their magnificent 4G pitch allowed for open, running rugby by both sides - despite the constant rain.

 

Both sides took an attacking approach to the game, with Crawshays having control of the game in the early stages and running at every opportunity. However they could not break the Lambs white line and eventually settled for three points after a number of penalties on 10 minutes. The poor weather conditions meant there were plenty of handling errors, yet it killed neither sides ambition to play open and attractive rugby - the result of which was a try in the corner for Crawshays, unconverted, to take them 8 points ahead towards the end of the half. This spurred the Lambs on and they then built some pressure towards the end of the first period, however they were unable to convert a number of good chances and their attacking intent was stifled even further as Matt Warren was sent to the sin bin with two minutes remaining of the half following a number of team offences.

 

A number of personal and positional changes at half time meant the Lambs came out with renewed vigour. This the led to a twenty minute golden spell as the Lambs continued to break the gainline and build pressure on Crawshays. Eventually a clean break by winger George Adams from a set play on the Lambs 22, followed by a chip ahead as he approached the covering back three, allowed Josh Gray to scream ahead to dot down. The kick was unconverted to take the score to 5 - 8. This was followed minutes later by a clean break from Elliott Croft, created through his own excellent footwork, to then let provider become scorer as George Adams finished off an easy two on one under the posts, converted by Croft, to put the Lambs 12 - 8 ahead.

 

The Independent Schools XV then looked to put the game to bed, and a yellow card for Crawshays and a penalty ten metres out looked to be the end. However, the ever battling Crawshays took an interception from the tapped penalty and ran 80 metres, only to be dragged down 5 metres short of the line. As the Lambs looked to turn over the ball Mike Peek was alleged to have killed the ball and was duly sent for 10 minutes in the bin. This then led to a battle of attack and defence and the Lambs defended their line with complete passion, pushing Crawshays backwards on a number of occasions. But once again Crawshays fought back and but for a cover tackle from the excellent George Adams they would have been over in the corner. The pressure continued to build on the Lambs try line and a number of penalties led to a third yellow of the game, taking the Lambs down to 13 men for the final minute of the game.  

 

The Lambs held out for that final minute to record their second win out of two. It was a great performance from both sides in poor conditions, with both defence and attack having their moments to shine in what was ultimately a great advert for rugby and some of its up and coming stars of the future.

 

George Adams was named man of the match by the Lamb’s coaching team.

MATCH REPORT - Captain's Exiles Report

Exiles match report from Captain Iain Billington

The English Independent Schools XV played our first game against the Irish Exiles on Sunday. We set out to play expansive rugby with the ball in hand. From the first whistle to the last we played with this mentality running in tries from all areas of the pitch with the intention to keep the ball alive whenever possible.

Ill-discipline on our part gave the Irish Exiles the early advantage as they run in a tap penalty from 10 metres out, this gave us a well needed wake up call. After regrouping under the posts we quickly responded with a flurry of tries lead by Josh Pieterse and Angus Hardy. As the first half came to a close Cyprian Owen Edmunds capitalised on a poor defensive kick and went over in the corner followed by a length of the pitch try from Charlie Banks showing off some brilliant feet darting through the Irish defence. Half time score 24-10. A comment from the referee at half time summed up the game as he asked me to speak to the Lambs requesting us to ‘run a bit slower’.

The second half was one for the archive; the forwards were breaking tackles and offloading excellently. This gave us room out wide to put winger George Adams in space to score. Replacement Fly half Freddie Chalmers converted from the touchline to give the Lambs a healthy lead. The game began to open up and with some great team moves performed at breathtaking pace tries came from Liam Fitt, Matt Retchless and David Harrison making the final score 52-15.

A brilliant start from everyone who played, I was most impressed by the Lambs ability to offload confidently to players that before the match, had only briefly met, let alone played together. Well done to the entire team and I hope we can work on a few things -especially discipline, before the next game to ensure we put on another great display of champagne rugby.

Man of the Match: Josh Pieterse
Tries: Pieterse, Hardy, Edmonds, Banks, Adams, Fitt, Retchless, Harrison
Conversions: Croft (3), Chalmers (3)

MATCH REPORT - Game v Irish Exiles

Match report from coach Alex Laybourne

On Sunday two teams aiming to play exciting, open rugby took to the field on Maidenhead RFCs impressive 4G pitch as The English Independent Schools XV, also known as the Lambs, started of their 2013 campaign with an emphatic win over a good Irish Exiles team

The Irish started the strongest, getting on the front foot and behind the defensive line with a good offloading game. Their early pressure was rewarded with a score from a quick tap penalty 10 metres out. This only spurred on the Lambs side and despite a number of line breaks leading to little but territory, they stuck to their game plan and eventually Man of the Match Josh Pieterse got over the line for a converted try, before turning provider for scrum half Angus Hardy to go in under the posts just minutes later.

In a pulsating opening 20 minutes the Irish Exiles then scored a carbon copy of their first try with another score in the corner from a quick penalty. The last 15 minutes of the half was end to end rugby and a try in the corner from Cyprian Owen Edmonds was scored before a length of the field score (for arguably the try of the game) by Charlie Banks gave the ISRFC Lambs a 24 – 10 half time lead.

The second half brought with it a raft of changes, but both teams continued to run with ball in hand and stuck to their attacking based philosophies. After a spell of pressure the Lambs scored another length of the field try, finished off by George Adams, before back rowers Liam Fitt and Matt Retchless added two tries in quick succession. Th Irish continued to exert pressure and were justly rewarded with a try with five minutes to go, before David Harrison finished off a great day for the ISRFC Lambs with a try in the last play of the game.

The final score was 52 – 15 to the English Independent Schools National XV, with the fixture providing plenty of entertainment for the on-looking crowd as the Lambs stuck to their philosophy of playing ‘fast and free’. The next fixture for the Lambs is Saturday 9th February, once again at Maidenhead RFC.

NORTH TRIAL - Updated Venue Details

Leeds Carnegie have said that Kirkstall is unplayable so we have moved the trial to Leeds Uni, Weetwood pitches. They are confident that the game will be playable on their pitch but they do have a 3G pitch as well just in case. If you have “mouldies” it would be helpful if you brought them just in case we have to go on the 3G pitch.

Timings are still the same.

Directions to the pitches are shown below.

I am aware that a couple of you might not have received the email I sent a couple of days ago.  Please check for further information regarding the trial.

Stuart Hardy

SELECTION CRITERIA – You will primarily be selected on your ability and skills as a player, however there is a secondary criteria and that is your willingness and ability to play fast, open and expansive rugby. We want to see everyone running with the ball from 1 through 15, keeping the ball in hand and alive. Kicking is not banned, at times against a strong defence it is a necessary option, however we want to see the ball kept in hand where possible.

KIT – Please bring all the usual kit, boots, gum shields, etc. etc. You will also need to bring kit to train in. You will be provided with a shirt to trial in. This will be lettered – it does not matter which letter you wear but please do not change your letter during the day as this is how we will be identifying you.

Under 18s

Rugby should and can be a game of perfect balance, a game where creative expression and physical courage meet in harmony.

The Lambs aim is to move away from over-prescriptive, boot-led rugby and give our players the opportunity to play ‘Fast and Free’!

We want our players to play heads-up rugby with the ball in hand allowing them to give full reign to their creative rugby abilities without being shackled by a win at all costs mentality. To win is good, but to win whilst playing the game in the right way is even better!
