U-19 Rugby: Trinity win second leg 24-13, but lose Bradby Shield

15 June 2019 - 64   - 0

A totally unexpected, and uninhibited performance by a 15-man Trinity College team saw them get cold comfort by winning the second leg of the Bradby Shield 24-13 against Royal College at the Royal Complex on Saturday (15). 

However, the Bradby Shield eluded them as Royal, by virtue of their lead in the first game, regained the Shield by an aggregate of 47 points to 41. 

At halftime Trinity dominated 12-3, but failed to erase the deficit of the aggregate as they fell short by seven points.

Trinity scored from four tries and two conversions while Royal scored from two unconverted tries and a penalty. 

By retaining the Bradby for a fifth year, Royal have tied their record. 

However, this is one less than Trinity, who had six wins in the 1950s.
