2020-21 Bangor RFC Club Rugby Men Instonians RFC U16 Club Rugby Ulster

Club Men: Instonians 7 Bangor 19 U16 Friendly

The enlarged squads of Instonians U16’s and Bangor U16’s met on Saturday morning for a ‘hit out’ at Shaw’s Bridge.

The game was played over three 20 minute periods to allow coaches to rotate their squads.

After a tentative start, Bangor turned the screw scoring 3 tries on 5, 14 and 20 minutes, 2 converted, to lead 19-0 at the end of the first ‘third’.

The squads were rotated for the second ‘third’, which lead to some hesitancy as players learned to cope with the substitutions. After a flowing move Instonians scored a converted try on 34 minutes.

The rest of the third remained scoreless as a persistent drizzle settled in.

As the drizzle got heavier good ball handing became at a premium and the third ‘third’ deteriorated into a series of knocks on and scrums.

There was no further scoring, leaving Bangor victors by 19-7.
