Second team finish September in style

Frampton Rugby second team started the season with two wins - one against a tough Yate RFC side and the other against a gnarly Dings Crusaders 3rd XV.
The team then faced off against Whitehall RFC 2nd XV, looking for another win in the Bristol & District League to reach the top of the table.
Neither side could hold onto possession for the first 10 minutes of the match with great defensive work from both sides and some unforced errors. However by the quarter hour mark of the match Frampton started to control the game with strong running from the forwards and skilful play in the back line.
The first try was scored by Kobie Mcglashan, the first of many tries from Frampton in the first half to finish at the break 35-0 up.  The tries kept coming in the second through Mason Robbins, Max Bleakman, Martin Clayton, Dan Mcglashan, Kobie Mcglashan and Callum Pitt.
The game finished after 60 minutes as agreed by both teams, the final score a decisive 69-0 to Frampton.

Frampton 3rd XV off to a slow but positive start for the season
Frampton 3rd XV lost their first league game of the season against a strong Aretains 2nd XV side, 41-15. Frampton only had 13 players to start the match, with Fraser Allen and Dan Casey from the 2nd XV helping out and playing for the 3rds for the whole game.
It was always going to be an uphill battle when you have 13 players but the game was enjoyable and three tries were scored by Frampton through Atko, Gary Plant and Tim Mason. Any new or returning players wanting to play rugby are asked to please check the club’s website.
