TJ Max at Old Reds

2nd March 2019

TJs headed to Bristol outfit Old Reds on Saturday. It had not been a happy hunting ground previously but this time TJ's control of the game for long spells was exemplary and a 24-40 victory was well deserved.

Up the slope and into a strong wind TJs did superbly to rally after an early setback to go in at half time 7-21 up. Tries from Duncan Tout, Charlie Edwards and Ryan Jackson plus three conversions from Will Robinson had put TJs in the box seat.

The second half was not all plain sailing though as Reds hit back early before Rob White, Mike O'Sullivan and Finlay Coxon-Smith added further TJ tries and Robinson added two more conversions for maximum league points 

The 3s headed to Aylseford for their Five Grain D4W encounter and secured a 17-27 victory with tries from Jamie Moncrieff (2), Paul Kent, Charlie Shea and Wayne Clayton with Karl Robertson adding a single conversion.

Sadly no game for te 2s as Beckenham cried off in their scheduled Invicta 1 encounter.

On Sunday TJs Pink Ladies headed to Worthing for their final league game and dre 17 all. That result sees them finish third n the table, a great return after a tough start to the season

And the U16s also drew but 0-0 with their hosts Canterbury in a Kent Cup semi final after some heroic TJ defence in tough conditions. Sadly for TJs the result was decided on the toss of a coin and Canterbury went through. You can see some of Mark Waterstone's excellent photos in the Academy Gallery

Elsewhere in N2S the top three all won with Rams (109 pts) rampaging to a 19-48 win at Dings Crusaders who are the visitors to The Slade next Saturday for a 3pm KO. Canterbury (97) remain 12 points back in second after their 38-15 defeat of Guernsey and Helnley (93) had a massive tussle with Cliftin before edging it 35-40. TJs are just 3 points behind Henley in fourth.

Taunton Titans (88) squeezed past Barnes 20-19, Redruth beat Old Albanians 33-15 and Worthing lost 22-24 to Bury St Edmunds.

In National 1 it remains very tight at the top with Old Elthamians and Ampthill tied at the top on 91 points after 40-29 and 24-36 victories over Plymouth Albion and Rotherham Titans respectively. Rosslyn Park (87) and Blackheath (82) remain in the hunt after their own 38-31 and 18-32 wins over Chinnor and Sale FC respectively.
