Rugby Match Report: AGC vs Bury Grammar School

Abbey Gate College continued their season with a hard fought victory against strong opposition. The boys got off to a fast start with an opportunistic try from the base of the scrum but some complacency in defence saw Bury come straight back with a close range score from the Bury forwards.

Indeed the Bury pack was much larger than the Colleges’ so further tries from Abbey Gate College were the result of quick offloads by the forwards to put the backs in space to score well deserved tries under the posts.

The second half started well with an early Abbey Gate score but the opposition forwards improved throughout the match scoring late tries to make it a nervous last ten minutes. Abbey Gate College eventually ran out winners but the boys knew that they had been pushed all the way. 


Final Score:

Abbey Gate College - 41
Bury Grammar - 29
