1st v Teddington (A) 9th December 2017

Lost in the last play of the match.

The Trojans/Teddington matches have always produced close and exciting games and this was no exception with four scores in the last ten minutes and the lead changing three times in the last five minutes but with Trojans, disappointingly, losing in the last play of the match.

After an even start, Teddington were the first to get on the scoreboard with a 5-metre line-out and a maul going over in the corner with a good long range conversion. After some open play Trojans gained a penalty, kicked to the 5-metres and from the ensuing scrum the ball was passed down the line to Toogi Long whose long cross kick was gathered by winger Charlie Pooley who dashed to the corner. From the kick-off, Trojans was concentrated on the halfway line until Dave Linton charged his way up to the Teddington 22 then passing out to Pooley to score his second try in two minutes with the conversion hitting the post. That gave Trojans a first half lead of 10 – 7 but, in general and although play was going from end to end, Trojans were considered to be on top.

The second half couldn’t have started better for Trojans with second row, Alex Williams, gaining the ball from the kick-off and charging from inside his own half to speed down the touchline to score in the corner, timed at 30secs. Teddington put the kick-off into touch which enabled Trojans to immediately put pressure on the Teddington line resulting in George Goff diving over in the corner giving Trojans a seemingly comfortable 20 – 7 lead. This was kept until the 20 minute mark when Teddington started to spark and scored in the corner. With ten minutes to go, Teddington gained another try, which was converted, to pull them to within a point of Trojans. Then, with five minutes to go, a Teddington attack in the Trojans 22 resulted in a penalty which was kicked to take the lead. However, that lead was short lived as Trojans immediately got into Teddington territory and a Long penalty snatched the lead back. In a finish that was as tense as it could be, Teddington battered the Trojans defence and finally broke through to score the winning try. As the conversion went wide the referee blew for no-side and another classic Trojans/Teddington match ended with Trojans having to contend with two bonus points.
