Match Report

                           CANTERBURY 3RD 42  DEAL 7 BETTESHANGER 2ND  5

Despite holding the territorial advantage for much of the first quarter, Canterbury's sloppiness in the face of their visitors' dogged defending, kept this Premier East game scoreless. Full back Jack Waite was the first to break the deadlock with, a 20th minute try.The visitors then suffered a series of injuries and the city side took full advantage with tries from Brad Allchurch (2) and Alex Evans.  Reduced to fourteen men, Deal battled strongly in the second half to record an unconverted try as the city side lost their rhythm.  They rediscovered it sufficiently to break through for another four touchdowns scored by Evans, Jake Upward, James Case and Ben Waite, with one being converted.
