Sunday 7th November
Score: LMRFC 60 – Bournemouth 10
In a well-contested game, played in a very good spirit, Lytchett defeated Bournemouth by 10 tries to 2.
Despite a number of injuries and people unavailable, Lytchett played extremely well against a very well-drilled and physically larger Bournemouth team. Lytchett matched them physically and consistently put Bournemouth under pressure throughout with aggressive defence and consistently moving the ball quickly away from contact. It was particularly encouraging that the Lytchett included a large number of boys who only very recently started playing rugby, who all played in such a dynamic and disciplined way.
The game continued Lytchett’s unbeaten run after comprehensive victories against Swanage & Wareham, Basingstoke, Fordingbridge, and Ellingham & Ringwood this season.
