Match Report

Fresh from a convincing victory against Chess valley last week the team was full of confidence going into the match against Hillingdon Abbots, but maybe too much so after seeing their loss to Feltham the week before.

We started the game with some great forward play before our defensive structure was pulled apart and we conceded a cheap, soft try down the blind side in the first 10 minutes. We quickly got our heads switched on with some great hands in the backline and one underhand pass by Tramp to set Jonno up for two tries under the posts to put us 14 – 7 up. The remainder of the half was a complete scrap with our forwards getting through some great work to stop a forward moving and organised opposition. The penalty count was large and both teams converted penalties to take the score to 17 – 10 at the half time break.

The second half for us started very much the same as the first with our heads in the wrong place and having to deal with another soft try in the corner which was converted 17 – 17. As the penalty count grew our fast growing point machine Jonno got yet another kick over and closely followed by yet another try under the posts by the star winger 27 – 17. Hillingdon Abbots kept their cool and played some great structured rugby and soon replied with a converted try of their own to take the score to 27 – 24 and set up a very nail biting final 15 minutes. As our team tried to hold off for the final few minutes of the game we dove into every ruck with conviction and eventually gave away the penalty that levelled the scoreboard at 27 -27.

Great personal performance from Jonno as he scored all our 27 points.

Not the most convincing match performance from the T’s but nothing that can’t be fixed in the two weeks we have to prepare before our home game against Ickenham.
