CABs Colts Win First Home Game of the Season

Launceston Colts 17 pts Penzance Colts 5

The All Blacks Colts secured their first home win of the season against Penzance on a blustery afternoon. The first half was well controlled and an early try from Ollie Bebbington, converted by Will Pharo, settled any early nerves. A lengthy period stuck in their own 22 was largely a result of the Colts reluctance to kick themselves down field. They also gave away numerous penalties for encroaching which they defended well. Eventually Kyle Tozer cleared down field and this led to a prolonged period of possession. A nice break by Leion Cole, Chae Jenkins and Luke Couch then set up a textbook backs move with superb drawing of defenders and accurate passing ending with Josh Rowland scoring on the right wing to extend the lead to 12 - 0. Another feature of the first half was a number of big hits, Toby May and Luke Couch contributed significantly in this area. The second half was a lot more scrappy, in both senses of the word. Missed passes, dropped balls and penalties given away led to it being a bit messy. This was offset by some superb lineouts. Leion Cole delivered well into the line and Chalrie Tummon's safe hands was coupled with great lifting. The thrid try of the game came from an excellent example of this. The resulting driving maul took them 30 metres up field and enabled a simple walkover try for Chae Jenkins. Penzance picked up a consolation try with a break from the their own half which was not stopped by the tiring legs of the home side. The final score was 17 - 5 to the CABs Colts.
