Two Points Two Plaques

24th October 2021

TJs headed north on Saturday for their first visit to Caldy in Round 8 of National 1 and came away with 2 bonus points in a crazy game of rugby.

Caldy scored first but TJs hit back with a Will Colderick try to trail 7-5 after 20 minutes. But it was one way traffic for the home side as they added 5 more tries, 4 converted, in the next 40 minutes and a 47-5 lead looked unassailable.

As it turned out ti was but TJ tries from Conrad Burne, Matt Foulds, Truman Sullivan and Charlie Edwards (2) with Tom White converting them all hauled TJs back to within 7 by the final whistle. 

The game was streamed live on Facebook to the TJ clubhouse and watching supporters sadly missed the final quarter as the stream encountered issues and may have been unaware of the final excitement.

Certainly 2 points gained in light of the 47-5 deficit at one point but TJs still slipped a place in the leage as Plymouth Albion secured a first win with a 30-36 win at Blackheath, Just Leeds Tykes are below TJs in the table now as they lost 33-32 to Birmingham Moseley.

Cinderford stretched their lead at the top to 7 points with a 26-21 win over Taunton Titans. Rams suffered a 29-23 loss at Darlington Mowden Park as Rosslyn Park had a Saturday off.

The 3s were due to play Ashford 2s but their hosts cancelled and the 3s headed to Sittingbourne for a friendly with TJs coming off second best.

On Sunday the Ladies were at Cranbrook in Round 3 of their WomensNC1SE(E) campaign and secured a 7-26 win. Tries from Eirlys Withers (2), Sophie Farrant and Megan Akehurst plus 3 conversions from Jules Teague.  The Ladies are top of the table with 3 wins from 3.

The Academy travelled to Canterbury n their Round 2 of the National Cup regional tie and after a scoreless first half they ran out 7-21 victors, Santiago Savage opened the scoring with Luke Beaumont adding the extras, Beaumont added a penalty and then a try of his own before slotting 2 more penalties to secure a fine win. 

The U11s took two teams to Cranbrook on Sunday as well and performed brilliantly to secure comfortable wins. Colts B drew 12 all at Medway whilst the U14s beat Colfeians 40-25 and the U13s lost out 15-50 to Upminster.
