Dartford Valley 19 - 10 Faversham

Lacklustre attacking display sees Faversham's terrible form away from home continue.

Two second-half tries were not enough to overcome Dartford Valley and break the Castaway's unwanted losing streak away from home.

The opening quarter was all to familiar for the visitors, two-quick tries putting 12 points down before they managed to get into the game. Two injuries for Faversham further dampened the mood for a team struggling to find consistency and develop any kind of attack.

On three occasions the Castaways found their way inside the Dartford 22, only to have their line-out intercepted and territorial gain squandered. Dartford proved particularly adept at holding the ball up in the tackle and forcing knock-ons to stunt any developing attack.

It took until the second half for Faversham to get on the score-board. With the line-out finding its mark the Faversham pack was able to set a solid platform, breaking and reforming a rolling maul to successfully drive over the line, Pete Ehmann coming away from the bundle with 5 points.

Sloppy defending from the kick off immediately scuppered any momentum as a jinking run from Dartford found its way through the line, with defenders left looking blankly at each other.

The build up to Faversham's second try was by far their best phase of the day, retaining possession and driving their way up the field. A wide miss pass from Jack Meadows found a miss-match out wide for Jack Williams to cross in the left corner.

Needing to score twice to win, Faversham rarely looked to be able to threaten the opposition line for the remainder of the game with Dartford again disrupting any progress.

Faversham will need to drastically improve their attacking play in order to record an away victory and finish in the top half of the league.

Faversham next play home to Shooters Hill on January 21st.
