BP and McHugh Hattrick Provide TJ Cheer

7th October 2017

Round 6 of N2S and Redingensians Rams were in town to lock horns with TJs. 7th v 8th on paper but the visitors had already faced and lost to leaders Chinnor and Cinderford so the form guide was a tad misleading.

Three first half tries by the Rams, one a scrum penalty try, was perhaps a tad fortunate for TJs in a half where they lived off stripped ball and counter attacks but got no further than the Rams 22.

The second half, with the wind at their backs, provided hope but Rams scored three more tries before TJs opened their account on 60 minutes. A purple patch of three tries in 10 minutes gave TJs some cheer as they closed to 17-33 but Rams were not going to let go of this one.

Rory McHugh scored his third and TJs' fourth to secure a bonus point and his hattrick but Rams ran out 24-47 winners to climb to 7th and TJs dropped to 9th

ON the road TJs' Dev squad faired much better with a 7-67 won against Charlton Park 2s in Invicta 1. The 4s came up short 37-10 away to Ashford 2s.

Top of the table saw Chinnor beat Cinderford 20-31 to leapfrog them into second whilst Taunton hammered Worthing 70-14 to go top on their own with maximum points. Canterbury saw off Wimbledon 7-22 after leading 3 nil at the break and Broadstreet finally overcame LIWG with a crazy 53-40 result. Redruth sneaked past BSE 12-9 in what we suspect were tricky conditions, Barnstaple beat Clifton 37-24 whilst Old Redcliffians drew 25 each with Henley 

In National 1 Blackheath impressed on the road with a 14-55 win over Birmingham Moseley to go fourth. OEs edged passed Caldy 26-24 to go sixth. Coventry are undefeated and lead although they only just slipped passed Bishops' Stortford with a 30-27 result.

London & SE Premier saw T Wells ease past Sutton & Epsom with a 26-27 victory but Barnes are top still after a 31-9 win over Sidcup. Combe secured their first win of the season with a 27-22 defeat of Guildford.

Medway made it a 100% record to date in London 1 S with a 56-7 defeat of Tottonians whilst Sevenoaks went down 41-12 at Havant.
