Forest v 2nd XV
The 2nd XV had a great match against Forest, after their 1sts cancelled their match just hours before the start. Claires Court played some fabulous rubgy, motivated by the fact that if they scored 4 tries and won by 7 clear points, then they would win the league. Some great tries by Teo Gaster, Ed Axtell, Matt Simmons, Lewis Hughes and Tom Worthington, together with 2 conversions by Max Williamson made it a strong Claires Court victory. The final score of 0-29 ensured the team also won the league. Many congratulations to all the players on a tremendous achievement.
2nd XV team captain
Mr Carter trialled some exciting new technology during the Forest match. Claires Court now have 2 GPS tracking units similar to those used by professional and international sports teams - the players wear them under their shirts and they give accurate data on the players' workload throughout a game. Mr Carter said "using the data we can modify our training to make sure it accurately replicates what players are doing in a game, as well as using it as a coaching tool to show players where they could be contributing more. Ex-Head boy and Maidenhead 1st XV player Ross Muil will be wearing it in his match on Saturday to give the boys a bench mark to aim for." Ed Axtell and Matt Simmons used them in the Forest match and their data is posted here.
