JMC First XV beats OBHS at Littlebourne and secures home semi.

Sunday 30th July 2023

The 1st XV's huge victory over Otago Boys' headlined one of the best weeks of the season for McGlashan so far on the rugby paddock.

 It was an arm-wrestle of a game, with everyone including the wingers covered from head to toe in mud by the end of it. Some sensible tactics saw Max Hore knock over a couple of first-half penalties, before adding one shortly after the interval to push JMC into a 9-0 lead. Otago Boys' hit back shortly after, but a solid defensive performance in the final fifteen minutes and excellent discipline saw our men hang on! Max was key in controlling the territory, but it was a game won by the forwards, with Henry Cleaver leading the charge. All in all, a fantastic effort that secured a home semi-final against OBHS this coming Saturday.
