Hampshire U17s played their first match against Sussex at Brighton College on Sunday.


The weather held off long enough to see a hard fought game of great rugby from both teams.

Sussex are a very strong squad and demonstrated that from the start of the game scoring two tries in the first fifteen minutes.

Hampshire responded by coming back quickly after a rusty start and from then on it was a closely contested game.

In the second half Hampshire were more aggressive in their tackling and defence and pushing forward, ending the game centimetres from the try line in the last play of the game. 


Final score  Sussex 26    Hampshire 21
