Grosvenor Grammar hosted Mount Kelly School from Tavistock in Devon on Saturday morning in a game totally dominated by the elements.

An icy easterly wind blew across the pitch numbing the players (& photographer!) making handling a lottery.
Both teams found difficulty in putting phases together and there was little continuity, as, at times, the game degenerated into a series of scrums and line outs.
The Mount Kelly left wing squeezed in at a corner midway through the first half for an unconverted try and the English side carried that lead into half time.
The second half was the same fare, though Mount Kelly handled the elements better, scoring 2 converted tries.
Try as they might, Grosvenor only made occasional forays into the Mount Kelly half, before mishandling the ball, let them down.
Mount Kelly deserved their 19 – 0 win, because of their control in the 2nd half.
