Two cracking games after the long break – the Gents beat Sanyo 46-17 (coming back from 12-0 down) and the firsts spanked Gakushi 74-7.

For the Gents, James Lovegrove made an outstanding debut, including 2 tries. Tad, a Cru regular, also scored twice before injuring his knee – we wish him a speedy recovery – and Al Ferris, Terry Dixon, Thierry Bourret and Richard Corner scored one apiece. Richard’s was a spectacular effort from the centres – Will Greenwood watch out!
The first team welcomed “Harry” Spencer back onto the field after an absence of nearly 3 years, and he played a fine game. Everyone in the team did well – the opposition were not soft, but were constantly struggling for possession in the forwards and forced to make tackle after tackle in midfield. Our ball retention & support play were excellent. Special mentions should go to Doogs, who just gets faster & faster and scored 4 tries before being comprehensively beaten by his MOTM beer; Garlo, who did a great job at #10 and created a beautiful try with a quick throw in; Gareth, who was superb at the line-out & restarts and made some big tackles; Sumo, who was everywhere (and even turned up on time), and Ryota, who was as indomitable as always and scored 3 (and turned up late AGAIN). Fraser also kicked beautifully for 7 conversions, most of them involving at least one post before going over. Other try scorers were Malcolm, Slugger, Danny, Fraser and Ben.
Gareth, Richard, Erich, Max, Al, Terry, Jeff, Danny & James deserve extra credit for playing all or part of 2 games.
