Match Report

                                     CANTERBURY PILGRIMS 12 WIMBLEDON 2ND 41

After only one game in five weeks Pilgrims looked like a side that could not shake off the rust..  Most of the damage was done in the first half when they conceded 29 points   Wimbledon, riding high in the Zoo Shiled, ran in five tries with injuries to Elliot Deacon and James Shaw further hindering the Canterbury cause. The second half started much better for the home side before injury struck again; this time it was centre Jon Gallagher. But Pilgrims got on the scoreboard through Nathan Taylor’s powerful, driving try and Liam Browne’s conversion.  There was another near miss from a revived Canterbury before Simon Jaynes grabbed an opportunist try.  Unluckily the injury toll grew, reducing Pilgrims to fourteen men in the closing minutes and Wimbledon took full advantage with a couple more tries.
