Match Report for

Charles River (1st) vs. Springfield (1st)
06 October 2018

Location: Moakley Park, Boston

Charles River: 46    Springfield: 19

This was always going to be a game of more physicality versus technique. The home team scored 7 trues (4 converted) and a penalty to three tries (1 penalty try) and I converted. It seems the visitors were not happy with many decisions but it became pretty obvious their interpretations of the laws versus mine. At the end of the day, it is the same ref for both teams and each ref. is a little different. The visitors in particular got frustrated with some basic principles - pushing up in scrums, not wrapping, not tapping a penalty, running down a conversation before the kicker moved forward on a conversion. At the end of the day, the home team's backs were better runners and defenders against the visitor runners.

Referee: Declan Boland
