Southwold Rugby Club v Romford & Gidea Park
Sorry no match report as David Vaughan is away, and I haven’t found anyone to do one, this is a brief summary of the game.
It was a wet windy day on the common and we should have made the best of the conditions which the visitors did not like but got used to as the game went on. Southwold went ahead 7 – 0 towards the end of the first half with a try from Jonny Mayall converted by Luke Wade, Romford & Gidea Park got a penalty just before half time which meant half time score was 7 – 3.
Just into the second half Romford & Gidea Park scored a try to take it to 7 – 10. Shortly after we got a penalty that Luke Wade slotted to even the score again 10 – 10. Romford & Gidea Park had a player red carded towards the end of the game for a spar tackle but Southwold failed to take advantage and allowed Romford & Gidea Park to sneak in another try.
Final score was 10 – 17
