Merchant Taylors' School, Northwood Boys-U14E vs  Bedford School
On: Saturday, 15 Sep 2018
Venue: at Home

Bedford arrived late after their coach broke down but any thoughts of an easy win for MTS were soon dismissed as the visitors tackled strongly. Turnovers from two MTS attacks led to tries for Bedford who had great pace in their backs. Taylors gradually clawed their way back into the game as the forwards started recyling the ball and driving hard. This led to a try for Harry Shannon and he could have scored again had he not thought the deadball line was the tryline. A fantastic break by Isaac Taylor Cummings saw Sammy Knight go over to equalise amid jubilant scenes for the home crowd. Bedford took advantage of a series of penalties to work themselves a line out close to the line and quick ball saw another try from their fast backs under the posts. MTS had the last word with a sensational outside break by Taylor Cummings leading to an equalising try with the last move of the match. A great opening fixture for both sides and a draw was a fair result.
