Match Report
The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School 2ND XV/ DEVELOPMENT vs  Mill Hill & Belmont Schools
On: Saturday, 21 Sep 2019
Venue: Away

The 2nd XV arrived at Mill Hill on Saturday with a purposeful sense of determination, despite knowing the strength of the team we were about to face. Whilst we lacked the strength of numbers and an early injury to our Fly Half set us back, the whole squad showed a great deal of spirit and commitment throughout the match. Having conceded an unfortunate try as the opposition managed to break through the centre of our defensive line, the team adapted and responded well against the oncoming wave of Mill Hill attacks, forcing them to pass the ball out to the wings. Special mention must go to Jacob Halperin for scoring our only Try of the match, but the spirit and passion shown by all players was admirable, and the cohesive persistence in the way the squad reacted to new threats was something to be praised, especially against such a challenging opposition.
