Old Cranleighans at home

A loss but an excellent game

A ding-dong battle with both sides playing great open, end to end rugby and it wasn’t until the half hour mark that OC broke through the Trojans defence to score an unconverted try. OC then began to take control, particularly through some sharp running by their backs and were rewarded with a goal shortly before half time. Trojans went straight on the attack and had two strong scoring chances but the OC defence held firm giving them a 12 – 0 lead.

Trojans started the second half strongly and attacked the OC line before a bizarre five minute period. On 7 minutes, Trojans were on the attack, well inside the OC half, when an OC player was yellow carded for a deliberate knock on. Within a minute another OC player was carded for the same offence and it was now that Trojans made the superior numbers count. A penalty from the infringement went to touch 10 metres out and from that line-out a strong maul took the ball over the line where 2nd row Josh Bowker claimed the touch down with Toogi Long converting. It was then Trojans turn to see yellow with Sam Semple carded for a late tackle, the subsequent penalty kick going well wide. Trojans were then unfortunate to lose scrum-half Neal Haworth (playing his 100th 1st XV game) through injury and that rather unsettled the back line and allowed OC to gain control scoring a try and a goal in quick succession in the middle of the half to take a substantial lead. Trojans, however, did not give up and put together a number of good runs, interspersed by strong mauls and rucks, ending with prop Mark Greenhalgh bulldozing over the line for a final try and an end score of 12 – 24.
