Mini Tournament at Rochford with Westcliff too
By Robert Carrington
153 tries scored in 10 games!
With a mini tournament organised by Rochford RUFC and Westcliff in attendance too the games came thick and fast. After the two week Christmas break the players were all raring to go albeit a little rusty.
We split into Burnham A and Burnham B with Rochford fielding 3 teams and Westcliff fielding 4 there were plenty of games to play so the games were shortened to 5 minutes each half.
The play was frantic with all teams playing to a fairly even level. Most games were close in score with only the odd one or two tries being the difference. Only a couple of games had a runaway scoreline.
Out of all the games the results were as follows: against Rochford
Rochford C 10-9 Burnham A
Rochford C 7 - 9 Burnham B
Rochford B 9 - 9 Burnham A
Rochford B 8-14 Burnham B
Rochford A 6 - 8 Burnham B
Overall score Rochford 40 - 49 Burnham.
Westcliff C 7 - 7 Burnham B
Westcliff D 10 - 5 Burnham A
Westcliff A - 6 - 5 Burnham B
Westcliff B 10 - 8 Burnham A
Westcliff A 9 - 7 Burnham A
Overall score Westcliff 42 - 32 Burnham
With so many games, tries and tagging going on it was difficult to choose a player of the week but this week it went to George for not only playing well, scoring tries and tagging but also for showing some good teamwork.
