Man of the match Josh Maier

We started where we left off from the previous game, scoring some excellent tries from set pieces and open play. Josh Smart set up the first try with an excellent run from the scrum, fending off 3 tackles and a great offload (video is on twitter) for Henry Heath to score. We played with high tempo and attacking flair with lots of support and offloading running in 5 tries and 3 conversions to take a 31-0 lead at half time. Halliford picked up in the second half and came all guns blazing, picking up two consecutive tries and Blue Coat struggling to get out of our own half. Eventually we got back in control of the game and Will Dexter scored our last try and finish off the game. Jamie Rogers was injured inside the first 10 minutes, so we played with 14 players for the rest of the game. This was a another challenge for our players, well done
