Another great win for the mighty 2’s who after getting to Maidstone very, very early thanks Wayne!
Another great win for the mighty 2’s who after getting to Maidstone very, very early thanks Wayne! had a good long warm up and were totally focused for the start of the game although we did turn their pitch up from our warm up.
We really took the game to Maidstone and kept the pressure up with yet another strong performance by the forwards wining scrums and rucks allowing our backs to run in 4 tries before half time.
Our prop hybrid winger Matty scored yet another try as did Tom both of which can’t stop scoring tries at present, keep it up boys. Two more tries were scored by Rob and Jake with Steve applying more damage with his conversions.
Al Sharman played his first game of this season for the 2’s and was able to disrupt and in most cases win the ball in the line outs which again allowed the backs to really apply more pressure on Maidstone.
We started the second half strong and were pushing Maidstone again however they did step up their game and started to keep the game in our half. Yet again the 2’s put in another strong defence to Maidstone’s phase after phase attack on our try line sadly to lose out to a penalty try which still escapes me and most of the team why.
The last 5 minutes the team took the game back to Maidstone and pushed them back you their half allowing both Jake and Tim to score further tries but sadly they were not given.
The whole team gave 100% which is all we can ask and I wouldn’t expect anything different from the boys and this is being shown with our results. Bob and Wayne are really leading the boys and driving a great team spirt that we all believe in which is shown in the numbers wanting to play.
