Match Report

This week the Spartans headed to Chiswick for an early kick off. The rain started hammering down as the game kicked off, the weather brought a few handling errors from both sides, which the T’s scrum the chance to exert some earlier pressure. T’s started well, having a lot of early possession but never really making much ground.

A disappointing 20 minutes in the first half allowed Chiswick to move the ball wide well and put some points on the board. A missed penalty attempted by Dan Jones was the closest T’s got to putting any points on the board in the first half, with the first period ending 26(ish)-0. Work to be done in the second half.

T’s made a good start to the second half with the defensive structure much improved. Some aggressive defence led to turnovers, and T’s started to exert some pressure. A few big scrums and fast ball allowed T’s to make some good yards. Chiswick scored a break away try 10 mins in to the second half despite the T’s pressure. After re-grouping under the posts, T’s forgot the scoreboard and started to play. A big hit from Tristan from the kick led to a turnover, some nice phase play and quick ball got T’s moving forward. Quick feet and good pace from Arlind allowed a break through the Chiswick midfield, who took two defenders over the line with him to touch down under the posts. Chiswick scored a few more tries, not quite sure how many…

T’s started to dominate for a good spell, with holes appearing in the Chiswick defence. George in at scrum half was dictating play allowing T’s to start to move the ball wide nicely. The game ended on a sour note with Sam injuring his neck in a tackle, the game was called on 70 mins as an ambulance was required. Good to hear Sam is OK after an overnight stay in the hospital.

 

Shout outs to; Mike, Arlind, Rob, Aaron & Dan for looking after Sam.
