Old Boys triumphed 26-22 at Thamesians on Saturday

UCS Old Boys go in search of more success on the road on Saturday when they visit Barnet Elizabethans in Herts/Middlesex One.

Old Boys collected just a second away win of the season last weekend with a 26-22 success at Thamesians.

Grit and determination was required for UCS to triumph in that match as they came from 22-5 down early in the second half to triumph.

Though Tom Arnold crossed for a try in the first half, Old Boys found themselves 14-5 down at the break at Thamesians.

A try and a penalty shortly after the restart saw Thamesians extend their lead to 17 points, before Old Boys began their inspiring fightback.

Converted tries from Chris Bean and Arnold saw UCS move to within three points of Thamesians as they piled the pressure on the hosts.

The winning score came from a penalty try after Corne van Vuuren was illegally stopped in the act of scoring a certain try to hand Old Boys a superb victory.
