Team for Semi
By Blues Brother
April 20 2018
This has been a highly enjoyable season for everyone who is True Blue and it would be fantastic if it was finished off with a cup final .
Ealing Trailfinders stand in our way as we head to Vallis for the B&I Cup semi-final .
Games between he two sides are always close but the hosts will assume an advantage as they inflicted two narrow defeats on us in the league.
WSe make just two changes with Lee Dickson in for Jordan Burns and Josh Buggea replacing Justin Blanchet.
Blues: 15. Rich Lane 14. Howard Packman 13. Rory Hutchinson 12. Michael LeBourgeois (capt) 11. Dean Adamson 10. Will Hooley 9. Lee Dickson
1. Sean McCarthy 2. Tom Lindsay 3. Ben Cooper 4. Jordan Onojaife 5. Will Carrick-Smith 6. Alex Rae 7. Josh Buggea 8. Huw Worthington
Reps: George Edgson, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo, Alex Penny, Ed Taylor, Ben Adams, Jordan Burns, Harry Sheppard

Ealing clinical in first half - couple of iffy ref calls as we've come to expect at least one which led to a rolling maul try. Really took it to them first 10 mins, butchered a try chance and they went the length for O'Connor (even more of a class act these days!) to score and that set the tone for the next 15 mins. We were then trying to play catch up and their 10 (who is off to Notts) ran the game and kept us at bay.
Players were getting frustrated and boiled over with Carrick Smith deservedly being sent off for actually pulling their player up and towards him, then sticking the nut on him! Still if you're going to get a red might as well make it worthwhile!!! Suspect he might get a decent length ban?
