"The game was played in the right manner for that age group. Some of the rugby on show was excellent and the skill level and commitment from both sides was a credit to the players," said Assistant Academy Manager, Phil Greenaway.
The Academy U15s have been training together for a while now but just working on skills and game understanding, and the aim is to modify this programme for next year and introduce more fixtures for the lads throughout the year with hopefully one at Kingsholm before an A League fixture.
It will hopefully improve our local talent ID process and ensure that the best players our coming through our local system.
"The local schools and clubs do a fantastic job with getting the boys playing rugby and the skill levels are continuing to grow all the time. Our aim is to try and support that and provide another level of support for the most talented local players but trying to ensure we support what the schools and clubs are doing."
The game itself was highly competitive with Gloucester choosing to run the ball at every opportunity and turning down all opportunities at goal and kicks to touch.
This made for a highly entertaining first half with Dorset & Wilts kicking a penalty and scoring a well worked try that was converted.
Gloucester hit back after the break with talented full-back Ryan Woodhouse scoring before centre Michael Whitemore also crossed the line. Simon Linsell and Ryan Charles were prominent up front along with numerous others.
Dorset & Wilts sealed the result with a late penalty but Assistant Academy Manager Phil Greenaway said the game was a great success.
"These lads obviously wanted to win but the main objective for them has to be enjoying playing rugby and show casing their talents."
"Winning is part of sport but for me today, was about seeing what these talented youngsters could do with ball in hand. I thought some of what we put together was outstanding and the approach from the players was 1st class. They showed a willingness to attack space, handle the ball and it was encouraging to see."
The Academy U15s will now play in the tournament this Sunday at Harrow School which is designed to identity potential Eng U16s internationals for a 35 man camp in the summer to be held by the National Academy Coaches John Fletcher and Peter Walton.
