This game on Sunday 6th January 2019, formed part of the Super Sunday fixture held at Loughborough University. Being the first fixture the plan was to give all the squad an opportunity to play at least a third.
Playing on the all-weather pitch in near perfect conditions, the sun even made an appearance; it gave both sides every chance to run the ball.
Leicester Manager, Stuart Davies summed up the day nicely.
“It was an enjoyable day yesterday and I thought all went well. We had some good rugby and you [NLD] clearly have some talented players”
The scores were:
Game 1: 3 tries 1 conversion to 2 tries, two conversions. So a 17-14 score.
Game 2: 1 try. No other score so 5 – 0.
Game 3: 5 tries, 4 conversions to 2 tries, 1 converted, making a 33-12 score.
The total would therefore be 55-26 to Leics.
Next fixture is on Sunday 20th January at Derby RFC 2pm KO against Staffordshire, on the new all-weather pitch .
