Unusually a senior rugby side took to the field over half term against touring side West Saint’s School, Belgium. Based just outside Antwerp, the touring side were on the last leg of a week long tour, that began in Kent and had taken in visits to London and Bristol.
In a hard fought, competitive match, the ‘scratch’ CCB side adopted a thrilling Barbarian style of play and attacked from the start, with winger Olly Lewis running in CCB’s first try.
Resolute defence by the visitors saw both teams stood ‘toe to toe’ for good periods of the game.
At the whistle the 19-19 score line was a fair result for both sides. 1st XV Captain Will Holloway played with authority, fly half Huw Thomas looked assured and combined well with the impressive Tom Richards who scored CCB’s second try with a fine angled run.
Jon Howells galvanised the forward effort and was a powerhouse in the loose.
The party was well entertained at Brecon RFC, to cement a strong new sporting connection for the school which will hopefully see CCB visit Belgium in the future.
