OA Colts through to Quarter Finals of National Colts Cup

OAs travelled to Marlow to face a much-vaunted Marlow side, and came away with a comprehensive 41-11 victory to move into the quarter-finals of the National Colts Cup.

OAs found themselves playing into a ferocious wind in the first half, and quickly went 0-6 down to two penalties. However, the OA forwards then started to control possession and OAs played sensible controlled rugby into the wind to work two crucial tries and finish the half 12-6 in the lead despite the conditions.

In the second half, OAs cut loose and scored some fantastic tries to build up an unassailable lead and finish 41-11 winners.

The seven tries were scored by James McCallum (x2), Luke Simpson (x2), Calvin Hibbard (x2) and Luke Atkinson-Coyle; with three conversions added by Luke Simpson (x2) and Rory Hextall (x1).

OAs now eagerly await the draw for the quarter-finals which will be played in just two weeks on Sunday 19th March
