RUGBY UNION: Seven-try Banbury show their mettle to defeat Grove
11:00am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Rugby
BANBURY Under 17s bounced back with a 41-12 home victory over Grove.
Having lost 32-17 to Amersham & Chiltern in their OBB League opener, this friendly win was a real boost.
Tom Arnold, Barney Gailiffe, Will Hardy, Rhys Andrews, Charlie Allerton, Hugh Saar and Harry Graham scored tries, with Sam Manning converting three.
Banbury Under 16s got their Oxfordshire League campaign under way with a 22-12 home win against Chinnor.
George Grieve, Reece Lines, Charlie Mallock and Caleb Shepherd went over for Banbury, George Barbeary converting one.
However, Banbury’s under 13s lost out 15-10 in a home friendly with Bicester, with Fynn Watt and Nathan Wiesheu scoring tries for the host club.
Scores from Louis Tooth, Toby Levene, Jonty Wood and George Compton-Alway proved in vain as Banbury Under 11B lost 35-20 at home to Oxford Harlequins.
A try from from Hamish Nelson could not prevent Banbury Under 10s losing 30-5 at home to the same opposition.
THE future of mini and youth rugby will be debated in an RFU roadshow at Henley RFC.
Taking place on Tuesday, December 3, the event is one of 27 being held across the country to engage with organisers, teachers, coaches, referees and parents.
