Sutton Benger RFC 1st 33 - 0 Frome RFC 2nd

Frome RFC 2nd XV travelled to top of the table Sutton Benger RFC 1st on Saturday...

The Frome RFC 2nd XV travelled to league leaders Sutton Benger RFC 1st knowing there would be a tough battle in store. It would be the home side Sutton Benger who would kick off with Frome playing up the slight slope the first half. With strong platforms from the Frome pack during scrums, it meant that Visitors were able to camp in the Sutton Benger half for the first ten minutes.

Frome continued to scrummage well against a much larger home pack which allowed a good platform for the backs to move, but Sutton Benger were showing why they have conceded very few points this season with their defensive organisation.

A kick over the top by Dan Chaventre resulted in an early chance for Centre Kurt Eckard, however the ball was knocked on approaching the try line. Sutton Benger utilised there kicking game well gaining good field position. The first points of the day went to Sutton Benger when the Prop ran a hard line off the Scrum Half and crashed over, the kicker adding the extras.

Sutton Benger had the momentum and there second try followed following some neat play out wide with one of the Sutton Benger Backline crossing over. Despite some resolute defending and extremely good play Frome could not get on the score board.

Half Time: Sutton Benger RFC 1st 14 - 0 Frome RFC 2nd

The second half started well for Frome who were eager not to let this game slip away, with Frome applying the pressure. However Sutton continually looked threatening and capitalised on some errors and counter attacks throuhout the half notched a further three try's.

Frome didn’t give in, and in the final 10 minutes of the game Centre Kurt Eckard read the play well to intercept the ball and break free, only to cut inside only to be caught by the opposition fullback.

The last five minutes of the game saw Frome camped on the Sutton Benger try line and after some relentless pressure from Frome, No.8 Stuart Elliott crashed over the try line but it was deemed to be held up by the referee and the final whistle was blown.

Final Score: Sutton Benger RFC 1st 33 - 0 Frome RFC 2nd.

This was the lowest score Sutton Benger had been held too this year. That in itself says something. Unfortunately the score line did not reflect the commitment and performance shown by the Frome players, which was simply outstanding. Despite the score this was the best Frome 2s have played all season. Producing performances of this quality will result in many more wins to come. Stand in Captain Dean Marshall was extremely proud at the way with which the team conducted themselves, outstanding attitude, a desire to never give in and to play for each other.

Man of the match - Dean Marshall lead by example making tackles, carrying ball well and controlling his team well as well as showing calm and composure under the pressure of being captain
