Mighty Trumpets deal knock out result, to vanquish visitors.
GRFC 3s build on last weeks great away win, with a big home win against Deal & Bettshanger 2s, to finnish 2015 on a high & closing in on the top spot
After last years victorious promotion season, this squad took a while to "hit their straps", after getting caught out early on at Medway, the boys have refocused & raised their game, not only dominating through the forwards, but unleashing a rampant back line, couple this with a destructive back row & you have a lethal combination.this was ably demonstrated on Saturday, giving the growing home supporters some well received Christmas cheer.
The game started brightly, with G's playing into a stiff headwind & starting the match as though they really meant business with a try in the corner from Jon Cokell
, his first of 3 tries. The conversion drifting wide.
This was the start of a try fest, with the forwards dominating the set piece & the backs cutting loose scoring 5 tries up to half time, 29-0, now for some changes, bringing on a fresh back row & an increase in work rate, just what D & Betts didn't want to see !.
With an increase in the scoring rate, 6 more tries in the next 26 minutes of the second half & Deal & Betts tiring, the game was agreed by all parties to finish early on 66 minutes, with a 71-0 home win, over a point a minute is a great effort & superb entertainment.
Great credit should be given to Deal & Betts, even though on the back foot for most of the match, they never gave up & contested to the end.
The new year should see the return of some of the GRFC wounded increasing the depth of the squad & upping the contest for places.
The first game of the new year sees the visit of league leaders Medway, the only side to beat the Trumpets this season, let's see if they have improved ? Because I know we have !!!!!!!!!!!, looking forward to a cracking game.
The trumpets have finished 2015 as they started it ON A HIGH !!
Merry Christmas & a happy & prosperous new year to you all..
