Match Report

                                              Canterbury 3rd 31 Folkestone 2nd 5


Canterbury started brightly and, having established supremacy in both the line out and scrum, set about putting the game beyond doubt by half time. Folkestone played their part, but could not cope with the free flowing rugby being played by their lively hosts.
The city side crossed the whitewash on a total of five occasions in a dominant first half performance, and added three conversions. That said, Canterbury did not have things entirely their own way as Folkestone scored an unconverted try of their own with the final play of the first half.
Canterbury try scorers were Michael Smith, Elliott Deacon, Brad Allchurch, Jake Upward and Sam Payne.
After the turn around the game was brought to a premature end following a serious ankle injury to Canterbury prop Ashley Humphrey-Smith.
The club would like to extend their sincere thanks to first aider Nigel Barwood and  the ambulance service, for the excellent  treatment provided. Everyone at the club wishes Ashley a speedy recovery.
