Seevic Storm battle through for another victory
Thursday, 23 March 2017
The Seevic Storm Rugby Academy took on Hartpury College in the AoC National Play-Offs finals on Wednesday 22 March winning 34-24.
This is the second year in a row Seevic have knocked out Hartpury in the Quarter Finals of the Play-Offs and it was another great achievement for Seevic.
The boys knew it was going to be a tough game so had to focus on their defensive shape and breakdown to ensure the win.
Danny Cleare, Director of Rugby, said: “The team went through phases well and we built pressure to break the line.
“The boys adapted to the conditions quickly and used it in their favour. We also had a strong set piece which gave us a strong platform to play off and help us dominate the game.”
The boys were put through their paces at training and after a tough week of injuries the team come together well to secure the win.
With Tom Ramsey securing three conversions and one penalty with the tries coming from:
- Matt Dobson, 18
- Jordan Dyer, 17
- Matt Needham, 17
- Joe Hurley, 17
- Josh Ridgway, 17
Cleare added: “Our back row was very strong and this is another competition which the boys have excelled in. The current tournament is for under 19s yet we have a young side this year and to win games like this is an achievement in itself.”
Tom Ramsey, 17, who studies BTEC Level 3 Sport and Exercise Science said: “Everyone really put in a good performance against a good Hartpury side. I am very proud of the lads and now we need to get back to raining and look forward to the next game.”
Seevic Storm Rugby Academy competes in regional and national competitions across the UK. The team train three times a week with one game every week.
