On the 11th January, in windy, cold conditions, OA’s A team played against Harpenden, a contest which is always hard fought. In the first half, our pack’s rucking was weaker than the oppositions, but with great runs from James Smith and fantastic kicking from Tim Davis we finished the first half ahead. In the second half, our forwards improved and the game culminated in a 25-0 victory for OAs. We then played a second game where the packs of each squad swapped around. The OA’s forwards dominated their rivals, but with great play from the backs the game was close and enjoyable.
