Great performance from a bare 15

'Bridge travelled to Vigo with no replacements and a player new to the game.

With a flurry of last minute drop outs we were desperately short of payers and praying for no injuries. Whilst the opposition may not have been as stiff as we have faced this season, they were certainly hard hitting and up for the game.

Starting with only 15 players seemed to spark something in the boys and from the off we took the game to the bruising Vigo team who were comprised of a range of players from under 16, under 15 and under 14.

A series of plays got us to within striking distance of Vigo's line and Ciaran HUTCHINSON crossed for the first of his hat-trick of scores.

Conditions were heavy underfoot and it was certainly not the day for kicking with only 1 conversion made all day.

'Bridge received the restart and immediately pushed forward with William Kay's blistering run seeing him over the line. 0-10 within 4 minutes.

This seemed to wake the Vigo team up and they started to put in some big tackles and formed a pretty good defence until Ciaran HUTCHINSON again scored on the 15 minute mark closely followed by Leon ANDREWS-SPEED 6 minutes later.

0-20

Just before half time a heavy knock to the head saw a Vigo player coming off having been knocked out briefly. In the interests of fairness we agreed to reduce our numbers to 14 and Arlo COPP magnanimously agreed to have a rest.

The half time team talk was the easiest of the season - "just carry on playing as you are" but with the feeling that Vigo could come back at us and make it a much closer game.

During half time, Vigo "found" another player and we were back to full strength. A brace of tries from Leon ANDREWS-SPEED in the first 10 minutes of the second half, one more football than Rugby with Leon, dribbling the ball over the line from a clever kick from Jordan NELSON.

The forwards seemed to realise that the backs were scoring all the points and, not to be outdone, Jacob Wright, Reece Bright, Bobby Jordan and Callum Erskine all went over from a passage of play that saw the backs hardly touch the ball. Intelligent Pick and Go's from Arlo COPP and Callum Erskine started all the tries with Callum's being valiantly defended by 3 Vigo players but the family trait of long arms meant he could stretch to dot the ball down on the line.

Soon after Bobby's try, he made the biggest tackle of the year, resulting in a trip to Maidstone A&E for a check up. Thankfully only concussion but an enforced minimum 3 week layoff. Get well soon Bobby.

With 1 less forward on the pitch the backs managed to wrestle the ball off the forwards and just before the final whistle both William Kay and Ciaran HUTCHINSON both went over with Harry Gosst slotting his only kick in a match which he managed with aplomb.

Special mentions to Alex Parsons for his work off the ball and the massive tackles he was putting in and Tom Moony and Tom Saunders who pushed, what was the most technically proficient scrum of the season so far. Newbie Lachlan Campbell equipped himself admirably for his first game and did what was asked of him. He must have been the happiest player on the pitch, judging by his smile!

Man of the match was a close run thing with everyone putting their hand up but in the final analysis despite Jordan having a great game at flyhalf, Reece Bright edged it with his best performance in a game so far.

Vigo were no push overs but at the end of the game our fitness showed through.

Well done boys for a great result and a great team effort.

Next game against Warlingham will be a sterner test but if we play with the spirit and commitment shown in this match I sure we can take the game to them.

Book your OPRO mouth guard day!
