ARC 2 ground out a gritty six point victory over RC West Friesland on 19 October.
On a fine and windy autumn day our visitors went ahead early with a break down the blindside of a scrum. This confirmed our feeling that West Friesland had 'come to play.'

After a period of play where no side seemed to get on top our defence really began to life in intensity. This was best shown by Allard van den Berg who made two important tackles in succession to prevent them getting over the advantage line. Unfortunately Allard was concussed shortly after and played no further part in the match.
