Match Report and Photos-20/8/21
In the first of a busy weekend at Chamber’s Park, Portadown Under 20s hosted our Scottish friends Hawick for their first game on tour to Northern Ireland.
Portadown named a team full of exciting talent to take on the visitors, and as the game kicked off, both sides started strong, throwing caution to the wind. Portadown started better, with a dominant scrum and slick hands allowing them to start the scoring, but the Hawick players responded well.
After this, the scoreline bounced back and forth between the squads, as the exciting style of rugby allowed both sides to show off their flashy side. Right at the death of the game, Hawick scored to win the game 26-31.
In the end, both sides were glad of the game, and all from Portadown hope that Hawick enjoys the rest of their tour, including another match at Chamber’s Park, between the Under 18 sides of both clubs.
