In a classic encounter and in front of a large and very enthusiastic crowd at Poplar Road, Old Ruts Colts just  edged past an excellent Horsham side in the first round of the RFU U18s Cup.

Both sides played some excellent rugby and tries were hard to come by but in the end Ruts deserved the victory for the mature way in which they absorbed the Horsham pressure and took the chances that came their way. Everyone who took the field can be very proud of that performance.

The 2nd round sees another home draw against Wasps on November 18th.
