THE Verulamians Under 14s played some of their best rugby yet in a training game against Hemel Hempstead on Sunday.
Hemel struck two early scores with the valiant Vees responding through full back Stewart Grey, who scored a try converted by captain Charlie Rainsford.
Vees continued to push for the line and to the delight of their coaches they came back with a try scored by Emil Mupemhi which was converted.
Hemel added two more tries before Emil Mupemhi ran the length of the pitch, making several hand-offs. Unfortunately, in trying to get as close to the posts as possible he went beyond the short dead-ball zone and the try was disallowed.
The final score was 33-14 to Hemel but the spirit of the impressive Vees shone against the well-organised league leaders.
With half-term absences the Vees borrowed one of Hemel Hempstead players who also accounted for himself well in the centres.
