In the Second v Third place playoff semi final the All Blacks Colts battled hard against a strong Redruth side. A lovely big forwards drive at a lineout gained 20 metres, from the recycle Kyle Tozer pounced at the next phase and darted over to open the scoring. Pete Bebbington had an outstanding game at Eight and stole the ball well in the lineout. Redruth responded strongly and spent long periods camped in the All Blacks 22. However, determined and sustained defending by the home side kept the Reds at bay until a poor lineout led to the equalising try. A quick tap penalty from Reuben Edwards led to a superb backs move with Charlie Wevill offloading to Luke Couch who fed Joe Vanstone. This led to a penalty and a scrum on the 5m line, some excellent forwards work enabled Rory Cinnamond to restore the home side's five point lead. The half time score was very close at 10 - 5. Maggie Watts was so 'relieved' that half-time had arrived while Noel Gorman predicted an early All Blacks second half try. This was duly laid on by a big tackle from Luke Couch which dislodged the ball and led to a fine Reuben Edwards break and offload to Rory Cinnamond. A lovely interception by Jordan Cunningham saw him then tease the Redruth defence, holding the ball out for them with one hand and finally unselfishly offloading on the try line for Harry Brewerton to score. The score now stood at 20 - 5 to the All Blacks. Another sustained period of Reds pressure saw them held up over the try line for a second time. Again, superb defensive play from the All Blacks kept the visitors at bay, with their big forwards held up time and time again. After a pressure relieving clearance kick a short lineout by Callum Dewson saw the ball come back to him quickly and he made a lovely break from th 10m line to extend the lead to twenty points. A consolation try for the visitors right at the end gave a final score of 25 - 10 to Launceston Colts. A final against St. Austell at Polson now beckons on the evening of Friday April 7th. Well done lads, a very tough game, great defensive effort and you really made the most of the territory and possession that you did have.
