Match Report

                            THANET WANDERERS 3RD 20  CANTERBURY 3RD 18

A Thanet penalty goal settled this tight Premier 2 East game in which Canterbury were twice in the lead. After an early exchange of penalty goals they won the advantage through a catch and drive try from Mike Smith, but  lost it in controversial circumstances.  Thanet were allowed to take a quick lineout despite the ball having touching a spectator when it crossed the touchline. It cost a confused city side a converted try which gave the home side a two point lead at the break.   That was extended when Wanderers Number Eight powered over for another converted touch down, but renewed Canterbury pressure ended with fly half Charlie Kingsman crossing between the posts.  The try was converted and the city side then stole back into the lead with a penalty goal. But Thanet set up camp in city territory late in the half and won the penalty that mattered.
