1st v Warlingham 14th April 2018

Another close one

Trojans travelled to Warlingham knowing that their opposition, although four places below them in the table, had won nine of their last ten games so a tough game was in prospect. And so it was with a scintillating game ending with Trojans only five points behind having been twenty four points in deficit and a total of six tries being scored in the last twenty minutes..

The game started at a pace with Warlingham immediately attacking the Trojans line but the defence held firm and Trojans then took play right to the Warlingham line. But back Warlingham came and slotted a long range penalty. Warlingham then kept up the pressure and on ten minutes set up a rolling maul from a 22 line-out and pushed their way to the line to touch down. Back came Trojans and on twenty five minutes, excellent interplay took them right to the Warlingham line and a quick ball from a ruck saw centre Kevin Richens dive over with a conversion by Toogi Long. Play went back and forth with Warlingham having the edge and securing two penalties but Trojans had their chances and a neat chip over the defence almost had winger Charlie Pooley getting to the touch down first but was a fingernail short. Just on half time another Warlingham attack broke the Trojans defence and secured a try under the posts and a conversion to give Warlingham a 21 – 7 half-time lead.

On ten minutes in the second half Trojans put a good move together and Pooley sped right to the line only to be brought down by a high tackle. This resulted in a penalty try and a yellow card for the Warlingham player. Over the next twenty minutes Warlingham were in control and some strong running by their backs resulted in a goal and two tries being scored. So, with just about five minutes to go, Warlingham were 24 points ahead and it looked as though Trojans would get nothing from the game but the players had other ideas and proceeded to score three tries. The first from a good run by Long to finish it off himself and the second from a good attacking run by Joby Kochanowski ending in a maul on the line and Elliott Culley claiming the touch down for a Toogi Long conversion and a try bonus point. Finally, and right on time, another fine backs play ended with George Goff running round behind the posts with a Long conversion securing the improbable second bonus point. But what if there were another five minutes to play?
