Holt 20, President's XV 12

ON Boxing Day, Holt played their annual match against the 15 raised by their president Iain MacBrayne from a cross-section of Norfolk clubs.

Fortunately the weather had relented and quite a lot of the snow had melted, allowing the game to be played on the second team pitch.

Holt conceded an early converted try to trail 7-0 but scored two unconverted tries to lead 10-7 at the break.

Holt scored an early try in the second half to increase their lead to 15-7, but then had to defend to keep the president's men at bay, although they did score an unconverted try to narrow the scoreline to 15-12.

Despite further pressure, Holt kept their line intact and towards the end of a very entertaining game, scored another unconverted try.

A good crowd were appreciative of a good, open rugby match and Holt can feel satisfied with their performance, which should hold them in good stead for their forthcoming league games which begin on Saturday with a trip to neighbours Fakenham to play the match cancelled before Christmas.
