Like many clubs across the country the was no competitive rugby for both Buzzard teams due to covid in the opposition camps.

Not to be deterred a number of players took part in a well contested inter-club fixture.

Players were mixed up creating two evenly matched teams. Even a few hardened supporters turned out for a festival of running rugby in the absence of contested scrums. At half-time the scores were almost even at 12 - 10 to one of the teams.

Fortified at half-time with a small glass of port, the second half saw a lot of the game taking place between the 22 metre lines with three well worked tries coming from both sides and it ended 27-27.

Scorers: Tries – Leigh Draper (3), Tom Winch (2), Felix Fiske, Owen Forsythe, Will Batchelor, Mike Robert, Dan Chalmers. Conversions – Mike Robert, Owen Forsythe.

Rugby returns to Wright’s Meadow on January 8 with the first XV taking on Chingford in the league and the second XV away to Sharnbrook & Colworth in a league game.
