National 2 South Round 18 review
Posted 860 days ago
Ealing are showing no signs of letting up in their pursuit of the Two South title after a 50-7 demolition of Taunton made it seven straight wins for the
Londoners. Jet- heeled winger Phil Chesters continues to blaze his own trail after another four tries boosted his tally to 25 for the season. More should follow
at Newbury this Saturday.
Jersey, the only team to beat Ealing this season, remain six points off the pace after a 25-20 win at Dings Crusaders. Ben Harvey’s side were pushed all the
way despite the Bristolians playing 30 minutes of the game with 14 men after three men were sent to the sin bin. Richmond are still very much in contention
after a 108-0 massacre of Newbury, which saw a glut of tries for James Greenwood (6) and Nick Moore (4) and a hat- trick from Alex Mclennan.
In contrast, fourth- placed Southend were happy to squeeze out a 21-12 victory after having three men yellow- carded against Shelford. Old Albanians moved
level on points in the table with the Essex outfit after recording a comfortable 45-8 win on a day when hosts Canterbury paid their respects to former player
Private Joseva Vatubua who was recently killed on duty in Afghanistan.
Two tries apiece for Finlay Coxon- Smith and Matt Miles helped Worhing to a 48-14 win over Hinckley, while Lydney had Tony Wicks’ injury- time penalty to
thank for a 23-22 win over Clifton. Westcombe Park stay in the bottom three after losing at Henley.Like Rugby World? Subscribe to the magazine for the latest comprehensive content.
