A close affair
Vs London Welsh
A close affair on a cold day as we welcome London Welsh to Hoe Lane.
Welsh had the best of ths first half as Hertford made a slow start and found themselves down by 3 trys within the first 15 minutes.
We then woke up and got ourselves on the score sheet with a trade mark Suarez try. Converted by Finlay Powell.
Welsh managed to sneak a couple more trys before half time to extend their lead.
Half time 12 vs 29
Hertford rallied and dominated the second half despite seeing Suarez sin binned. The highlight of the trys being a great take at fully back my Elliott Jordan who jinxed a run through off loaded and got the ball back to dive over the line.
Two great team tries then saw Rew and Ed Holman score in quick succession as we leveled the game at 34 all.
The minutes were ticking down and a chance went begging fot Hertford and Welsh took advantage to pin us onto our own try line. Some scrambled play from both sides ended up resulting in a penaly which the fly half for Welsh kept his composure to slot over the posts to edge the win it for Welsh and for them to secure the league and two super bonus points for Hertford and in what was such a brilliant show of rugby no one can be left unhappy.
Full time 34 vs 37
