Cantabs win against Shelford in Cambs Cup

November 30, 2019

The 2nd XV hosted local rivals Shelford 3rds in the Cambridgeshire RFU Intermediate Cup, and went through to the next round with a four tries to three victory, Final score 23 - 15.


We saw a rare try in the corner from the silver fox James Robertson. Flankers Will Rix and Harry Hill looked very promising; but my man of the match was No 8, Ollie Dakin, who rampaged through the Shelford defence on more occasions than I could count. Throughout the Cantabs pack was well on top and dominated the scrums. Also good to see Charlie Searle back enjoying his rugby after a long break for injury; one jinking run around four flapping Peacck defenders was a true blast from the past. Shelford to their credit, continued to fight well to the end, and scored a late try to finish on a positive note.


The game was played in the right spirit and was a credit to both Clubs
