The Manchester Grammar School 1st XV vs  Silcoates School
On: Monday, 23 Sep 2019
Venue: Away

The scoreline might suggest that this was comfortable win, but it does not tell the full story of this match. On a narrow pitch, the opposition defended tenaciously and we looked rattled early on, with poor discipline leading to a 3-0 lead for the hosts. They kept this lead until around 15 minutes in, when our first try seemed to settle us down.

Silcoates never gave up, with their impressive back row players tackling their hearts out and competing for everything at the breakdown, but eventually the MGS pressure told and the points tally started to mount.

We now look forward to a local derby versus Wilmslow High School (who defeated Merchant Taylors in their cup clash) in the next round.
