Garnham Hattrick in Dominant Forward Display

A brutal performance from Faversham’s pack led to a 7 try victory over a strong Canterbury side at the Rec.

Man of the match Luke Garnham stole the show bagging a hat-trick, whilst further try’s for Bulteel, Egleton, Stott and Scamp ensured there was no possibility of a late Canterbury comeback.

Faversham started positively with strong carries from the ever present Garnham and McDermott ensuring plenty of front foot ball in the opening exchanges allowing several phases with attacking intent. However, despite Faversham starting the stronger side it was Canterbury who opened the scoring. Picking the ball up in his own 22, the Canterbury full-back broke the line from deep and found support outside him to run in from the half way line unopposed. The seemed to cause confusion within the Faversham team; and a sloppy restart from Egleton led to Canterbury running in a try from kick off as they made the most of a four on two overlap on the blindside.

A penalty kick from Canterbury extended the lead to 15-0 within the opening quarter of the game, but this seemed to re-ignite Faversham who came back into the game with a mixture of power, skill and athleticism. This started by Faversham’s pack winning the ball against the head at the scrum, pushing Canterbury off the ball whilst at the number 8’s feet. From this good yards were made and the ball was spun wide to Dan Hodges who got Faversham into the opposition 22 for the first time since the opening exchanges. A steal from the increasingly present Connor Harmsworth at the resulting lineout and strong work at the maul from Tony Harrison and Tom Scamp moved Faversham closer to the try line, and good hands from Billy Egleton and Dan Hodges put Pete Buteel in the corner to score Faversham’s first try to make the score 15-5.

Faversham started the second half superbly with an excellent re-start by Egleton landing bang on the 10-meter line which Sam Oatley retrieved to win the ball back for ‘Sham’. Quick hands from Dave Tabor and an excellent line from Luke Garnham resulted in Faversham’s number 8 to run in for his first try of the game. Shortly after this good work at the breakdown from Eddie Stott and Tony Harrison meant Faversham turned the ball over on their own 10-meter line, a change at fly-half meant Pete Buteel went to first receiver and excellently found Egleton outside him. Egleton then managed to step outside Canterbury’s winger before a turn of pace down the hill meant he was too quick for ex-Faversham player Ollie Jaynes to catch him resulting in the scores being levelled at 15 a piece. Faversham were now completely on top and dominating, especially in the scrum where they won another penalty against the head.

A good kick by Egleton meant Faversham had a throw 5 meters from the opposition try-line, and captain McDermott found Harmsworth in the lineout and a good drive by the pack meant Eddie Stott opened his account for the season with a tidy finish down the blind side. The scores kept coming for Faversham with Tom Scamp opening his account for the club with a powerful drive over the line on his debut; before Luke Garnham completed his hat-trick. His second try came after an excellent scrum for the Faversham pack won the ball against the head and marched Canterbury over their own try-line. He completed his hat-trick after charging down Canterbury fly-half Ollie Jaynes and chasing down the loose ball to go in unopposed under the post.

With the game coming to a close, Faversham made several changes bringing some of the younger players more into the game. Canterbury however scored the final try of the game after some good work down the blind side by their backs. The winning margin could have been much greater had Egleton not had a poor day off the tee, and head coach Ben Tewksbury was happy with the performance and saw it as a good warm up to the league season starting against Greenwich away on the 23rd September.

Man of the match was Luke Garnham who was back to his excellent best.
