Match Report
Dulwich College U16A vs  Wellington College
On: Saturday, 08 Sep 2018
Venue: at Home

The U16 A team opened their 2018-19 season with an excellent display against a talented Wellington outfit. Lacking possession Dulwich defended superbly for much of the first quarter. This dogged defence paid dividends as the hard press led to an interception try. Wellington were quick to strike back, keeping the ball well and creating space for their outside backs. Dulwich were however causing the opposition trouble every time they kept the ball and were unlucky not to score on a number of occasions. They did finally cross the line with a well worked backs move. Into the second half things were very tight. So injuries required some readjustment to the Dulwich team and Wellington were quick to capitalise, moving a few scores ahead. DC still had many opportunities but were unable to make any count until the last 5 minutes. An impressive start to the year but much to work on.
