New Year hangover for Lions
Defeat to Newbury not great start to 2015
We looked rusty and Newbury looked like they wanted to win just that little bit more. This was reflected in their eagerness to snaffle the ball at the breakdown, otherwise we looked stronger at the scrum and set pieces. Scoreline looks a bit more harsh on us than the actual performance was if you follow my meaning. Anyway here's how your correspondent at the game called it;
ARFC Colts @ARFCColts · Jan 4
FT and we will reflect that on another day we would have won that
Oh dear Newbury break from halfway run a lovely line and score in the corner. 24-8 and barring a miracle surely that is game.
Sustained pressure on the line Newbury eventually drive it over and important conversion 19-8 about 10 mins remain.
Sam Page break from 30m out slips three tackles and scores 12-8 game on! #ilovesampage
