This was an opportunity to test ourselves away from the league with opposition from a different level. As was expected Aldridge were strong up front and gave us problems at scrum and line out time.

The first half was evenly contested and finished scoreless despite Veseyans having the advantage of slope and wind. Aldridge started the second half the stronger scoring two tries early on. However, Veseyans stuck at it and were rewarded after some dogged attacking play with a simple try for Lewis Gaffney.

Veseyan 2nd XV are back in league action next week at home against Luctonians.
