Bec's Match Report

Match report from Bec's website

Newcomer Alex Warsop completes another match winning performance and runs in 3 tries against a capable Sittingbourne side.

Newcomer Alex Warsop with another match winning performance runs in 3 tries as Becc's run out 34-24 winners over 2nd in the League Sittingbourne in a great display of running rugby at "The Den".

A glorious sunny autumn afternoon, with a full touchline saw a great display of rugby as Becc's and Sittingbourne were keen to run the ball at every opportunity ending in great tries by both teams, much to the crowds enjoyment.

A very closely fought contest played in a great spirit, there was never more than a score in it until the Becc's 10 broke away with 10 minutes left on the clock to put the game out of reach of a well organised " never say die" visiting team. Twice Nick Avery showing a real turn of speed was hauled down metres from the line by some last ditch tackles from the Sittingbourne full back, ensuring we did not secure our 3rd 4 try bonus point of the season.

The team now has a rock solid inspirational 8,9,10 axis , with some real pace and experience outside, providing we can secure possession we will be a handful for any team in the league. With a couple of wins under our belts and some gritty displays there is a belief and spirit building within the team. The back row ran their socks off and tackled all day long , and with the front 5 securing and stealing ball at crucial points in the game we had enough of a platform to launch our young back line from.

We are by no means the finished article, however with some more fine tuning which we can only achieve on the training paddock I genuinely believe a top quartile position in the league is well within our reach, if we want it.

Great performance guys, and congratulations to Michael "O" for another memorable win under his captaincy and leadership, and to Alex for his outstanding 34 points ( takes his tally to 78 points so far this season in 4 league games, not a bad average!).

Also I would personally and on behalf of the team like to thank the supporters and mini's mascots for their touchline support. I can only reiterate what a difference it makes , it was great to so many friendly faces , and as a team we will be doing our best to ensure that we can reward your loyalty.

Keep on rolling.
