On: Saturday, 23 Sep 2017
Venue: Away

Today's match vs Brighton started very well, with some good attack and defence on display. After scoring a well worked try to Captain Jordan Bond the boys looked good. But again we put ourselves under pressure by simple mistakes on attack leading to conceeding points just before halftime.

Halftime chat was taken under the shade of a big oak tree, and plans made to up the intensity and accuracy. For patches this worked and we looked threatening with ball in hand, and after conceeding a third try the biysnsparked intonlife and replying with a great team try in the corner from flanker Raef Murphy. With the score at 19-14 to Brighton the momentum and energy was with St John's but a mistake on the receiving kickoff lead to Brighton striking straight back.

In the wash up mistakes cost us dearly and the final score line reflected this of one that could have been. 31-14 Brighton
