All Blacks back to winning ways
10:13am Tuesday 19th February 2013 in Rugby
Andover 24 Milbrook 21.
Oakwood sponsored Andover returned to winning ways at the Goodship Ground last Saturday in a close fought encounter with a powerful Milbrook side.
The visitors beat Andover on their own turf earlier in the season and were looking to complete the double.
With the experience of Marc Wilding back at the helm however the All Blacks showed the extra control needed to win tight games which has been lacking in recent weeks. “Marc’s experience, both as a player and leader is invaluable on the pitch” said coach Andy Waite. “The youngsters can learn so much from him and he gives that know how when it gets tough, that you need against experienced opponents.” Milbrook provided a stern test in the end for Andover who just about edged it in most areas, but a nervy second half made the scoreline closer than it should have been and in the end the home side were grateful for the final whistle.
