Mixed fortunes in Southampton

Post date: Mar 17, 2012 6:28:16 PM

The Bulls sent an experimental side down to Southampton for a couple of development games against newly formed Southampton Spartans and Farnborough Jets.

The team struggled to get to grips with the narrow hall and were surprised by the strength of the Southampton squad. After being 7-1 down at half time the game plan was altered slightly to take account of the hall. The second half saw a slight improvement but the game was lost 14-6.

The Bulls then played Farnborough Jets who themselves commented on the lack of space to play in. Basingstoke took full advantage and won comfortably with Donna top-scoring with 4.

Full report to follow later. Thanks to Doug Inwood (Fanrborough) and Gurnam Roath (Southampton) for guesting
