Match Report
Stamford 4th XV vs  Oakham School
On: Saturday, 16 Sep 2017
Venue: Away

A real attritional game. Plenty of mistakes in the first match of the season. The lack of a Size 5 ball, led to us using one of our spare balls, which was duly kicked over a hedge and unable to be retrieved. Camped in the Oakham 22 for large periods we couldn't finish a host of opportunities with the opposition refusing to kick to touch. Oli Pollock scored a comedy try three times before it was finally awarded! A 17-0 lead at half time gave us some breathing space, but Oakham never gave up and pushed us very close in the second half. A very weary team were relieved at the final whistle.
