I don't know what he's been like the rest of the season, but the Shelford 10, Josh Simmons, had a storming match yesterday.  Shelford looked focused and determined all match but went in at half-time 8-10 down.  The 1st half was pretty even.  Shelford had applied pressure but found it difficult to break down the Wells defence.

About 15 minutes into the second half Simmons went on a run.  Wells defence has been solid and resolute most of the season but he went through 4 or 5 tackles, leaving the TW defence looking flat-footed, on a mazing run that took him all the way in.  He was busy and effective all match, but that single run changed the momentum of the half, lifted Shelford's confidence, and was the defining moment of the match.  It was the right time for it, and set the tone for Shelford for the rest of the half. A great individual try.

There are a lot of good 10s in this league, so maybe not, 'team of the season', but certainly man of the match yesterday for me.  Really impressed.
