ACGS v Giggleswick School – 1st XV (2012) [TRIAL]
2012 GPS Rugby Union - Trial - First XV
Anglican Church Grammar School (H) - 45 def. Giggleswick School (A) - 10
In a match of two halves, ACGS (Churchie) were able to put the touring English school team from Giggleswick School to the sword.
The first half was a veritable rout, with a dominant forward display from Churchie setting the platform for some great tries by forwards and backs alike. The Giggleswick backs barely touched the ball - maybe twice in the half. 31-0 at half time to Churchie.
A much tighter contest eventuated in the second half. After pressuring the Churchie line for a near constant fifteen minutes, Giggleswick were unable to register their first try. Despite being reduced to 14 men, Churchie quickly found their way to the other end of the field and came away with another try.
Minutes later, Churchie managed another great try, started by an immense rolling maul from within their own half, ending with their #7 (who was having an excellent match) breaking from the back of the maul and running 40 metre solo to score under the posts. 45-0.
Giggleswick came back with a consolation try late in the piece (some thanks to a lucky bounce off a player's back) and a long range penalty on full time. Nonetheless, the score finished at 45-10 in a dominant display by Churchie.
