U15s defeat Bexley 80-17

Millwall's ever improving Under 15s are at the peak of their game after handing out an 80-17 thrashing away at Bexley on Sunday.

Flyhalf and Captain Bobby Grace contributed a 37 point haul, consisting of two tries and an impressive 9 conversions from 11 attempts.

The Isle of Dogs club ran in 12 tries in what proved to be their most polished display of the season, but it didn't go all their way in the first half.

Ever present Fullback Jacob Lajolie opened the scoring for the visitors after some good ball movement, however Millwall spent much of the opening exchanges defending gallantly on their own line.

A Danny Hunt try extended the lead to 14-0 despite the defensive pressure and when Elliot Nagel crashed over to make it 21-0, Millwall thought they had the game in the bag.

Bexley fought back to grab a try of their own against the run of play but from then on, Millwall's slick handling had them scoring at will.

Tries to Alfie Duffy (2), Liam O'Keeffe, Michael Dola-Lami, Max Grecins, Nathan Rachdi, a second try from Hunt and two from Grace sealed the massive scoreline for Millwall.

"That was a really entertaining game" said U15 Head Coach, Gary Mclaughlin "I really feel for Bexley, they did their homework on us and it's clear they've been working hard since the last time we played them."

"But I really couldn't fault any of our guys today, everyone of them put in 100%, There are still a few silly mistakes that we need to eliminate from our game, and matches against some more experienced clubs will be an interesting test for us."

Despite the long list of try scorers to choose from, Coach Mclaughlin singled out flanker Jon Woods as man of the match:

"He so quick off the mark at every ruck, every scrum. He was just outstanding all around the park and played an exceptional flankers' game".

Millwall Under 15s face Hackney Bulls in a fortnight's time before returning to Millwall Park for a match against Bexley on 13th of March.
