'Bridge supreme against new Ash green.

With Edenbridge being close to full strength, the travelling NAG we’re going to be up against it. 1st starts for Ben Weston and Darren Lockhart really added another ounce of quality to an already impressive squad.

A slightly late kick off was upon us, and we were to be marshalled by quite the youngest referee that I’ve ever seen. Still wet behind the ears and legs that resembled two bits of wet string. Having said that one of the better refs we have had this season so far.

Both teams started with a lively tempo with the ball covering most parts of the pitch. 'Bridge were to get down to business quickly though with 2 Lewis Bowen tries in quick succession. Shortly followed by a great line from our Chinese pocket rocket Sam Tan to score under the sticks. A Bobby Weaver duo was followed by Robert Mitchell to level the scores between himself and the scrum capped leggings wearer (Bowen).

The visitors persistence did pay off eventually with an unconverted score of their own. Amazingly, this was to be the only pass that their young winger caught all day.

Onto the 2nd half. 34-5.

Enter the subs. Gary Patterson, Nick Horner and Nick Tingley hanging up their shirts for the afternoon to make way for Tamás Tolnai, Dominic Mitchell and a debut appearance for Rory Kay.

A great team effort was on show for the next try. Huge pressure was too much for our opposition, finished with great power from our commander-in- chief Lee Roberts.

Another long run from Lewis Bowen put him back into the try race lead. A mazy run from Robert Mitchell that parted the defence like a hot knife through butter brought the chaps level again. Much to the disgust of his brother.

Just yet another Lewis Bowen try (4th of the day) to finish the game in emphatic style. 10 well earned try’s in total to go with 6 conversions from the trusty boot of the skipper.

The fans were treated to a Master class in how to play running rugby. I for one loved it. Well done chaps.

Man of the match again could have gone to anyone. I decided on grandad wannabe Andy Ward. Huge carries from the majority of the restarts and gritty work all over the park.

I couldn’t decide on a dick of the day, so I went for a play of the day. Great strength, speed and direction to lead to one of the 2nd half tries. Will Presland.

To finish, I’d like to offer congratulations from the entire club to Chris Lewis and his lovely wife on the birth of their baby girl Robyn Audrey Lewis. Welcome to the world.

So we look forward to next Saturday and the short drive to Tunbridge wells.

Up the bridge!!!
