A tough game but battled well

Trojans were, ultimately, grateful for a try bonus point in a very fast flowing but tough game in which the strong Battersea backs were continually threatening although Trojans were strong in the forwards and put up a good showing for long periods.

Trojans kicked off and the Battersea backs immediately showed their potential by cutting through the Trojans defence and a chip over the goal line was touched down by Trojans, However the drop out enabled Battersea to attack again and they mauled over the line from a line-out to score with a good long range conversion – all within two minutes. From the kick-off, and after some confusion, the ball was hacked on by Trojans full back Patrick Gibbs who won the race to the ball to score with an easy conversion by Chris Boyd. The pace of the game continued and on ten minutes Battersea confirmed the strength of their backs by, again, slicing through the defence to score in the corner. Battersea continued to keep up the pressure and scored two more tries in a similar fashion but Trojans came back with some intricate interplay between forwards and backs ending, right on half time, with winger Charlie Pooley going over in the corner to make the score 12 – 22.

Trojans started the second half well and pressed the Battersea line a number of times but conceded a penalty which allowed Battersea to break out and sweep right down the pitch to score a converted try. Trojans then started to put some good moves together and formed a ruck on the Battersea line from where Gibbs, now at scum half, dived over to score with another Boyd conversion. It was then Battersea’s turn to score another goal but Trojans did not give up and, right on time, winger Ben Rose was on the end of a move to score in the corner to gain a welcome try scoring bonus point.
