England Universities 26 – 6 Royal Air Force - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opBwydHHjH4
Wednesday 12th April, 5pm, University of Nottingham.

England Universities capped a successful two day training camp in preparaton for the Student Rugby League World Cup later this year with a 26-6 victory over the Royal Air Force, but were made to work for their victory. The team are raising funds for their tour at http://www.gofundme.com/englandunirl

It was Zack McComb who struck first for the students, pouncing on James Woodburn-Hall's grubber kick and grounding inches before the dead ball line on the right hand side of the field. Sam Druce was on target with the conversion to nose the England team ahead.

Sustained pressure and a penalty gave England field position and the students' left to right move saw Woodburn-Hall fire a cut out pass to McComb who jinked through the defence to touch down. Druce was off target with the conversion.

The RAF defence clicked up a notch in the following sets, with both sides playing free flowing rugby in an end to end encounter with Ben Mellor making big hits for the services side and Josh Halstead delivering a fine defensive effort for the students. England lost Jason Bass on the quarter of an hour mark to a rib injury and shuffled their backline to bring Kieran Smith into play from the bench.

On the half hour mark, Jake Reed fired a rapid ball left to Druce, who dropped off Marcus Stock spun his way through his opposition number to dive in to the left of the posts, setting up the easy conversion for Druce to move the England into a 16-0 lead which they held at the break.

With the wind behind them, the RAF made better use of half back's John Ledger and Adam Flintham's boots, kicking long and deep into the England territory. Garry Dunn, Ledger and Scott Stevenson combined to allow Kev Bruneye to barge through on the left hand side, with Bruneye using his strength to ground the ball solidly. Ledger's kick was on target to bring the servicemen back into the fight.

Druce, having been instrumental in many of England's attacking plays scored a cheeky try of his own fronm dummy-half, running up the blindside as the Air Force defence all moved to the open side, but was off target with the kick.

The RAF put together a purple patch of attacking plays as the game entered the final quarter, with two 40/20s from Ledger pinning the students in their own half, forcing back-to-back sets, but the England defence stood firm throughout.

Winger Nathan Hill streaked away on the back of Woodburn-Hall's break up the right hand side of the field, with Druce adding the extras to complete the scoring.
