3rd Team 31 v 23 Verulamians RFC 2nd xv - Home League on 8 Dec 2012

Published on Monday, 10 December 2012

Hitchin 3 XV 31   -  Verulamians 2 XV  23

Herts/Middlesex Merit table 4

Verulamians turned up a player short but thanks to the generous donation by  of Hitchin’s Ryan Arbon the game was on !

Turning up with a player short gave Hitchin the impression that the visitors were in disarray.

As the game kicked off this was far from the truth. Their forwards were quick to the breakdown which meant fast ball being distributed down their backline

.Hitchin’s defence slowly started to kick in but not before letting in some soft tries.

The forwards then started to knuckle down with some penetrating runs from Willy Corrigan helping to set up clean ball for Adam Howard to distribute down the back line.

Some strong running from Pete Frisch then started to open up the Verulamians’ defence giving Hitchin’s backs more attacking options.

Chris Hillyard, a new find, injected pace into the game adding a try to Hitchin’s tally

A controversial decision sent off Mark Gibson with a yellow card ten minutes before the end of the game.

Hitchin fought on and delivered an excellent win
