The best of Peterborough? Rugby Showdown...

Saturday was the day that Peterborough's finest rugby sides clashed as they battled in their league tie at Fengate Fortress.

Borough vs. the Lions on a beautiful calm day promised to deliver some thrilling rugby and a great day out! Well to be honest it wasn't all that thrilling. It was stop start, and littered with unforced errors. But it was a great day out...

It was the first Peterborough Rugby game that I have seen and whilst no, it wasn't the fast paced, flowing game that we had hoped for - it is obvious that the standard of rugby being played by both sides is right up there - the tackles being made, and the aggression shown making for a compelling watch! I will definitely be heading back to Fengate to watch a few more league ties this season.

After a tight, nervy first half the Lions pulled away in the final third of the game. They finished pretty comfortably with a 25-6 win to continue their impressive run of form in the league this season. 

Here are a few photos of mine from the game. I think you will all agree that the best hair doo has to go to Peterborough's number 2 (throwing in at the line out)... well played sir!
