When the boys were 21-0 up on Sunday (two tries for Saadiq, one from the Bomber, and three conversions from Luke) I thought it was in the bag.
In the end they went down 29-28, so that is the chance of promotion blown for this season. One might say that the ref marched the Guildfordians all the way from their touchline to ours with a series of dodgy penalties and that he blew up for full time after the conversion of their push-over try despite saying there were still three minutes on the clock before the kick, but that might be interpreted as sour grapes. We'd still be in with a shout of going up even with a 29-27 win so it was a real kick in the guts.
Onwards and upwards. The school may be followed at the National Sevens today at http://n7.schoolssports.com/fixtures_List.asp?TSID=1850&T=Team&V=201205, and the first kick-off is moments away.
