Tip Top TJs

29th September 2019

TJs climbed above Henley Hawks on Saturday to top N2S for the first time in theri history. A 7 try haul plus a perfect kicking display from the tee by Will Robinson gave TJs a 10-49 victory at Bournemouth and another maximum 5 point haul.

First half tries by Hugo Watson, Charlie Edwards, Will Robinson and Ryan Jackson gave TJs a 3-28 lead at the break and with the wind and slope in their favour they added more through Murray Galbraith-Lowe, Matt Walsh and Tom Chapman.

A polished performance full of confidence from the team against a side who are now bottom of N2S and pointless. Hopefully they will have better outcomes in the remainder of the season.

Down in Somerset Taunton Titans impressed with a 25-17 win over previous leaders Henley Hawks. Just 3 tries apiece though so Taunton's 4 point haul lifted them to second behind TJs and the Hawks dropped to third.

At the bottom Sutton & Epsom secured their first win with a 21-17 over Westcliff and Old Redcliffians did the same in a 21-8 home win over Old Albanians. Leicester Lions impressed again with a 39-20 win over Clifton and Dings beat Barnes 34-15. Worthing lost 19-30 at home to Redruth and Bury St Edmunds ambushed Esher in 24-14 win.

So just Westcliff and Bournemouth remain winless after 4 rounds whilst only TJs and Taunton have a 100% record. Something will have to give next Saturday though as the Titans visit The Slade fro a 3pm KO. Book your pre-game lunch asap to make the most of what should be a great day at TJs, with hopefully a fifth win.

The 3s headed up the road to Sevenoaks for their Kent & Sussex Rural Division 4 tie but could not quite edge out their hosts in a 19-17 defeat.

Dylan Taylor Dennehyand George Seal scored tries whilst Dylan converted both and slotted a penalty.  Captain Seb Lewis acclaimed the TJ defence but lamented that we couldn't quite sustain our attacks for long enough. That’s the way it goes sometimes but no lack of heart and effort by the squad.

No game for the 2s as the game against Sidcup had to called off

On Sunday the TJ Pink Ladies had a Junior Cup first round tie at home to Beccs and despite edging in front after trailing 5-14 at the break they finally lost out 26-28. 

In tough conditions Becky Wood scored the TJs' first half try before Hannah Jackson crossed and Juliette Teague converted. Hannah added a penalty before a Charlie Skelton try and Hannah conversion took TJs in front. Beccs hit back though to snatch victory.

The U16s won their Kent Cup group game with a 12-59 victory at Gravesend to make it maximum points from their first two games.

The U15s won 24-7 at home in the Kent Cup to Canterbury whilst the U12s shared the honours with Sevenoaks with a 10-5 loss for the As and a 10-5 win for the Bs.
