Hove v Lewes
Game 2 : Tough Lewes team go down fighting
From the opening kick off that Lewes knocked on to the last play, Hove dominated, however Lewes never took a step back.
Hove's JJ opened the scoring after 3 minutes and Jamie converted to go 7-0 up.
The backs then combined to get the ball out to Tom playing on the wing today to protect his shoulder and he flew down the wing to take a 12-0 lead.
JJ and Tom then combined a couple more times before half time, taking one more try each 24-0.
Lewes kept fighting and finally got their reward with 3-4 great offloads just before half time to go in 24-5.
Following a high tackle and a heavy lifted tackle, the Referree issued Hove a warning which was then followed by a warning to Lewes for decent. There were no further issues and no Cards were handed out.
Hove had a full bench, 22 players as well as 5-6 that couldn't be named today, so made 5 changes at half time.
That didn't stop Hove's momentum and with Lewes only having 2 subs, they began to tier.
Archie made a number of jinking runs which had fed JJ and Tom in the first half but early in the 2nd half scored himself.
Lewes struggled to cope with Casper today with bodies hanging off him on a number of occasions but had little hope of keeping him away from the line with a 5m Scum. They managed to hold him up with about 2m to go but Charlie Loxley took the ball off Casper and dived down for a 34-5 lead.
With just over 10 minutes left, Ben found himself out on the wing with no Lewes defenders left to stop him, 39-5.
The final scoring honours went to our captain, Casper with another trademark bulldozing run through the middle and went in under the posts.
Final score 46-5
Great all round effort boys and a well deserved win, shame you lost the after match drinking/Mars game again!
