Action for Valley thirds

Amber Valley 3rds 34pts

Woodhouse Giants 7pts

AMBER Valley’s third XV made their first outing of the season against a young and enthusiastic newly-formed Woodhouse Giants, who are currently playing under the Banner of Mansfield All Spartans.

Woodhouse had the edge in the backs, but as the old rugby adage goes ‘The forwards decide who wins and the backs by how much’.

And the visitors didn’t have the experience in the pack to get enough quality ball to their backs.

Phil Tolan will be pleased with his effort with two tries and Tom Uniacke and Andy Bonsall also put in good performances as many players were making their first starts of the season.
