Match Report

A good start by the Pilgrims, Miller kicks, Weaver chases and catches a good drive by Roach and backed up by Miller and the move ends up just short of the line! Minutes later Colfs kick to clear their lines, Te-Kori Moore chase back to recover and gives the ball to Miller, to Veale to Morgan and out to Weaver who returns the pass for Frank Morgan to score, Will Hilton converts, 7-0
Jarvis then picks up and makes ground, support from Meredith and Weaver is put away for a converted try, 14-0. The backs are playing fast attacking rugby, getting the ball down the line, Jack Weaver is on Fire!
Then a period of sloppy play, was it too easy! Dan Gill is making more yards in this game than the whole season put together. From one of his 20 metre runs, Hilton puts Moore away for a good try as he darts through a gap that wasn’t there to score, ‘Pub’ converted, 21-0
Elliott Lusher made an awesome 30 metre charge from the kick off, Gilly made further ground, the ball got to Morgan for his second try, which was converted 28-0. Then Colfs, who never gave up had a good spell of pressure. Moore handled and from the penalty colfs won the line-out and scored an unconverted try, Half time arrived with the visitors leading by 28-5.
After a poor first ten minutes, Alex Veale went on a 40 metre rampaging run, before Miller scored out wide left, Hilton hit the left upright. 33-5.
Canterbury then scored another try with the ball going the whole way down the line to allow debutant Demi Kuteyi to score out wide right, Hilton hit the right upright! 38-5.
JJ Galagher ran 50 yards but thought he was going to get caught, so passed, no try! He ran 30 yards and tried to touvh down, but the ball left his hand too early, no try! Jack Weaver scored his third try, an individual run from just inside the Golfs half, Hilton converted, 45-5.
The backs were dominating again and Morgan found Veale in support who gave the ball to JJ and Miller stormed up for the switch and an easy try, 52-5. Weaver again with Morgan and at last JJ got his well deserved try, from 5 yards!! 59-5. Hilton got 14 points, 7 conversions.
Tries Weaver 3, Miller, Morgan 2, Moore, Kuteyi 1.
This was a very good team performance for the most part, all players should be pleased with the performance.
