Report: Harlequins U18s 7-20 Bristol Bears U18s

Bristol Bears U18s made it five wins from five in the Premiership Academy League after an impressive victory against Harlequins at Cobham RFC on Saturday afternoon.

In an extremely physical encounter, the Bears got ahead on the scoreboard early in the first half and kept their lead intact throughout the game.

Three tries from Tom Ormsby, James Randall and Ed Harvey and a penalty from the boot of Sam Worsley ensured the U18s continued their unbeaten season.


What happened?

In a bruising opening period, the Bears started brightly against their fellow unbeaten opponents, pinning Quins in their own 22, before Tom Ormsby collected Sam Worsley’s delightful dink over the defence to open the scoring.

The huge hits kept on coming from both sides throughout an even first half, before James Randall rumbled over from the back of a maul on the stroke of half time to give the Bears 0-12 lead going into the break.

The hosts struck inside the first minute of the second half, the ball falling kindly for them to dot down after a charged down clearance kick.

The Cubs responded well however, with Ed Harvey crashing over from close range shortly after.

Victory was sealed after Sam Worsley’s penalty stretched the Bears’ lead to 7-20, rewarding another strong away performance with the U18’s fifth win on the bounce.

15. Sami Hamid, 14. Gabe Lacey, 13. Isaac Campbell Wu, 12. Lucas Berti, 11. Tom Ormsby, 10. Sam Worsley, 9. Pete Carter; 1. Louis Trevett, 2. James Randall, 3. Jimmy Halliwell, 4. Ollie Thraves, 5. Paddy Pearce, 6. Aaron Tull (c), 7. Charlie Cox, 8. Ed Harvey.

16. George Davey, 17. Billy Marsden, 18. Billy Moran, 19. Pete Paramore, 20. Tom Gardner, 21. Rhys Price, 22. Henry Hawkins, 23. Jake Smith.
