Both Juniors and Seniors in action in this distinctively Etonian and sometimes impenetrable sport.
Senior Ties vs PEPW
This was a game that was very tight in the first half, and then just somehow slipped away in the second. There was some strong play from a talented WING team, nonetheless, and plenty of spirited grit of which to feel proud.
Two short matches in quick succession tested the fitness and resilience of our Juniors, and they were not found wanting. On the contrary, the WING team is developing into a formidable unit, with a motivated bully and some very deft Fly action. Both matches resulted in comfortable victories, so that the confidence of this young team is growing all the time.

A superb run from the juniors, led by Anthony and Harry, took them to the semi-final of the main competition. The seniors were slower to find their competitive edge, but still managed to battle their way to the final of the Consolation tournament.
Not a victorious event for the team from The Timbralls, but all our runners contributed, with particularly spirited performances from Adi in the senior race and Georg in the juniors.
