Match Report

Norwich AXV 14 Broadland 1's 59


Norwich AXV 14 Broadland 1's 59

The AXV fielded what must have been it's strongest side this season. In fact numbers were so good we had 23 playing. We thank Broadband for allowing us to play all the players and give players game time.

The wind was very strong and gusty but mainly going down the pitch so it was always going to be a game of two halves.


Norwich played with the wind in the first half. Broadland started well and pressured the home side by running at them with their big guys. And they had plenty of them! Broadland scored first but missed the conversion against the wind. Norwich were trying to tackle to high which contributed to Broadlands second try. 0-12.

Norwich then came back well and with a fine set of interplay Charley Matthews scored. 7-12. Broadland took exception and pushed hard and scored again. 7-17.However the home side had belief following their first try and scored again with a very similar burst of interplay. I don't know who scored but it was a lovely try to watch. 14-17. This looked like game on. But Broadband showed their experience by grinding out another score before half time with some clever short kicks to score again before half time. 14-24.


Norwich felt good at the half time chat and knew that they would have to defend well to keep in touch. But Broadland played the elements very well with some great territory kicks. Norwich didn't manage to add to their tally. Broadland scored another 35 points to finish the game 14-59. That score did not reflect the game. But Broadland were worthy winners.

Apart from the first 20 mins Norwich competed well in the scrums. Their line-out worked well. The backs made ground with ball in hand. The referee deserves a mention for a really good fair game. And 23 Norwich players got to play rugby.

Man of the Match (see pic below) with the generous prize donated by Mark Walton, plasterer extrordinaire, went to youngster Callum Davison.


Away to West Norfolk next week. Will we have 23 available?
