Mixed fortunes for Eyasses

Mixed fortunes for Eyasses

By Ospreys Rugby | 15/08/2013

It was one win and one draw for the Ospreys U18s at Old Albanians RFC on Wednesday afternoon.

In a pre-season double-header, the Eyasses saw off Saracens 14-5 before going down to a 26-19 defeat at the hands of Northampton Saints.

The win over Sarries came despite the Young Ospreys conceding an early try, a young Jack Perkins touchdown converted by Rhodri Davies ensuring the Eyasses went in at the break with a two point lead. A second half score from Jake Williams, converted by Dylan Francis, secured the win.

The Eyasses opened the scoring in the first game through a Morgan Jones try, Francis adding the extras, before they were hit by a three try salvo from the Saints to put them 19-7 ahead. The Young Ospreys showed good spirit to fight back, tries from Callum Bowden and Aaron Grabham, with one conversion from Francis, bringing them back level at 19-all.

However, a late Northampton try secured a win for the Saints.
