Unbeaten run continues.....Just!!!!!

Colts battle out a 10-10 draw with County Finalists.
Hinckley Colts seven match unbeaten run continues in a nail biting encounter with County Finalists.
It was evident in the first 15 minutes this games was going to be a very close match and any points on offer should be taken. Hinckley scored first through Davey who showed a great turn of pace to cross the white wash for a 5-0 lead. The home side then rallied and enjoyed large periods of possession finally resulting in a score to level the match and go into the half time break all level at 5-5.
Hinckley started the 2nd half the stronger forcing the home side into a number of breakdown offences resulting in a number of kickable penalties, however, the visitors opted for a dysfunctional line out
allowing the home side to continually clear their lines. The home side then went ahead for the first time in the match with an exquisite cross field kick to their winger who finished excellently, conversion missed 10-5 to the home side. The visitors then dug deep after being forced into a number of changes were quicker to react to a loose ball which was kicked through and somehow managed to win the foot race to get a hand on the ball before the Harborough defender to level the match 10-10. Excellent defence once again by the visitors in the last few minutes kept the home side out who also turned down kickable penalties to win the match.
A match which arguably neither side deserved to loose but will rue not taking points when on offer.
