Getting better week by week
By Jay Holt
Another solid victory for Hove Spartans
For the second week in succession, Hove Spartans put in a great performance to gain a convincing victory over Chichester U16s. Despite half-term absences and some injuries, we put out a strong squad of 21 players, which dominated all phases of the game. Chichester put in a sterling defensive effort but could not get enough possession, or live with the continuity of the Spartan's attack. We scored 9 tries of which 4 were converted.
In anticipation of the RFU 50% rule, which will be introduced next year, this season we have been trying to give equal game time to all members of the matchday squad and we're starting to reap the benefits - the gap between the "best" and the "rest" is closing. This enables us to have confidence in the team we field regardless of the names on the shirt.
Great performance lads! Working harder, getting better, week after week.
