Off the ball running helps distract hosts as Henley ease to victory

SOME good play by visitors Henley 13s last Sunday saw them overcome a powerful Bracknell side.
Sam Quane went over for the first try which involved a sweeping move that went the length of the pitch before he crashed over from a few yards out.
Bracknell had a powerful pack which kept Henley under pressure but their backline could not contend with the Henley speed of foot and passing. The back row of Bradbury, Rocks and McRae denied any quick ball to the opposition which, combined with fast line speed in the backs, meant Bracknell were reliant on their big pack marauding around the fringes.
Jerome Rocks scored a couple of run-ins from deep but at many times in the game it was the Henley defence which kept the visitors in the game, Max Smith, Eddie Whitwell and Max Benster were particularly heroic close to the Henley line.
One of the highlights of the game was the off the ball running from deep which caused distraction and confusion in the Bracknell line throughout the game.
Henley U13s are next in action on March 15 when they play the county cup final.
