Old Grammarians 43 – Uxbridge 0 (nil)

Uxbridge still bottom.

In the lead up to this Saturday Uxbridge had lost 5 league matches and were expecting to play Old Grammarians in the Middlesex Federation Vase First Round, but on Wednesday the status of the match was changed to a league match.

Uxbridge will be disappointed that they couldn’t maintain their improvement in the set piece from last week, sadly finding things very hard going against a dominant Old Grammarians pack.

Uxbridge back Glen Curtin was by far the Uxbridge man of the match this Saturday, but with the side failing to score twice in two weeks, questions will be asked of the side’s regular finishers and those that would usually provide the creative attacking options.

Old Grammarians battered the Uxbridge pack in the set scrums and gave their backs clean ball; their backs finishing the chances regularly given to them.

The Uxbridge first team captain Mark Mason wasn’t available this week and he’ll come back to the unenviable task of leading a side that has received yet another dent to their confidence.

As December approaches, Uxbridge need to get off of the foot of the table to avoid the psychological disadvantage of being bottom at Christmas.

Uxbridge face Hertfordshire based side Royston in a tough home Herts & Middlesex Division 2 league match next Saturday.

The Uxbridge 2nd team game was cancelled by their opponents at the last minute. The Uxbridge 2nd team face Old Actonians away in a friendly next Saturday.

The club is pushing recruitment in the local area. Check out the website and magazine site to learn more about Uxbridge Rugby Football Club. www.uxbridgerfc.co.uk
