Six try first half romp sees CS to their final league win of the season
by Adrian Houstoun
Last week CS had already secured the league and promotion, but having a couple of this season’s key players absent they were hoping to finish in style, particularly to mark the final league game for the club of centre Paddy O’halloran
; CS did not disappoint.
The damage was done early on with first quarter tries from Adam Nixon (2)
and Will Scott
who also scored a second, later in the first half. The other two first half scores were from hooker Josh Forrester
and left wing Pumulo Banda
. Fly half Liam Cleary
converted all six tries for a half time lead of 52-0. Full back Toby Guyatt
scored the first of two second half tries, neither of which were converted, although CS did concede two converted penalties 52-14 being the final score. CS Captain Tom Proctor
was presented with the league winner’s shield by Peter Baveystock
Chairman of Middlesex RFU. The performance had indeed been a fine send off for Paddy O'halloran
, and all at CS thank Paddy
for his contribution and wish him well for the future. Afterwards CS were able to reflect on a successful season with 140 league tries scored, averaging at least 5 per match, and 24 league victories in 26 matches.
The season is not quite finished as this Saturday CS also feature in the Middlesex cup final which is being played at Chiswick RFC.
