Staffs U20 v Durham

Staffordshire Under 20's travelled up to West Hartlepool for their final pool game in this years National Shield Under 20 Championship on Sunday 28th February. 

With 3 players down due to injury on the Saturday, only 19 players traveled. But what an effort the guys put in.

Losing 14-19 with around 10 minutes left, a 5 minute period of pressure gave 2 penalty chances and No.9 George Prince coolly put them over to put Staffs 20-19in front.

The last 5 minutes was tense rugby with Durham camped on the Staffordshire line, but solid defense kept them out for the win.

Scores for Staffs: try - Alex Nesbitt and George Prince, con - George Prince x 2, pens - George Prince x 2 

Whether Staffordshire progress to the quarter finals will depend on the final game of the pool between Lancs and Durham
