Having won the West Sussex Championship in March Worthing U10's faced Lewes RFC U10's (East Sussex Champions) to decide who would be crowned Sussex Champions.
Worthing U10's started the game on the front foot, putting a lot of pressure on Lewes but were unable to find a way through a well organized and strong tackling Lewes defense.
After the initial onslaught from Worthing, Lewes were able to break out of their defence and start to show their pace and agility, in doing so they exposed Worthing's early defensive frailties, something that the boys have taken time to get to grips with in the majority of their games his season.
Taking advantage of Worthing's slow defensive start Lewes got the ball wide and were able to get the over the line to put themselves ahead.
Following their try Lewes continued to press forward sensing that they had the better of Worthing, however Worthing hung on. more...

Great playing conditions proved to be a fantastic motivator as the Under 13s won the Burleigh Junior Festival at the weekend.
Playing in a round robin format against local and touring teams, Worthing played some scintillating rugby as each squad member played a major part on the day.
Bonus point wins in all 3 of their matches and only conceding twice was a great result of all the hard work and effort the squad have put in this season.
Having recently won their respective league and gained promotion to Sussex A league next year, this has rounded off a memorable season. Well done Boys!

The U10's fielded 3 squads (36 players)this weekend.
Two squads were on the 'Right Royal Ruckus' tour (report to follow once coaches have recovered...) and 1 squad went to the Lewes A festival.
The squad who went to the Lewes A festival were a combination of some of our experienced boys as well as some who were attending their first festival and getting a taste of competitive rugby for the 1st time.
We started the day off slowly, finding ourselves 2-0 down before half time of our first game against Lewes 1's who had a couple of quick and elusive players. After a motivational team talk at half time the team went out and put some great tackles in to prevent Lewes from scoring any further tries in the 2nd half and were unlucky not to have got themselves on the score sheet.
Unfortunately one of our experienced players (Alex Suckling) injured his shoulder as a result of his tireless tackling and had to retire from the festival. Thankfully a trip to A+E confirmed nothing broken and he should be OK to play again in a few days time.
Fired up from their early loss the team took on Upminster in the 2nd game of the day. A good mix of effective tackling, determined running and quick clever passing ensured the team a 6-1 success.
