Depleted Colts Edge Saints at Polson

Launceston Colts. 27 pts St. Austell Colts. 24

The CABs Colts started this home game with a long list of injuries and missing players. They were forced to field a back in the forwards and only had three subs for the game. Despite this they opened up a good first half lead with tries from Ollie Bebbington and Finn Turley plus a conversion from Will Pharo giving them a 12 point margin. Matt Tharme went off early on with a recurrence of a knee injury, which led to further shuffling of positions in the pack. The backs then demonstrated some fine handling and ran some great lines. They conceded an unconverted try after the first of two yellow cards. However, they managed to win a number of penalties around the visitors 22 despite being down to 13 players. Will Pharo kicked the last of these to make the half time score 15 - 5 to the CABs. A decent size crowd were in good voice, particularly in the main stand, and they were treated to five more tries in the second half. Captain Leion Cole picked up a nasty looking shoulder injury which depleted the forwards yet further. Despite this the CABs continued to build their lead, this time Aiden Jacob started a lovely move down the left wing which then came back to mid field via Kyle Tozer, Toby May and Will Pharo to Luke Couch who scored under the posts. Will Pharo converted to make it 22 - 5. The CABs then kept the Saints penned back in their 22 with a succession of penalty kicks to the right hand corner. They were rewarded with a Charlie Tummon try from a solid lineout drive. With a 22 point lead they appeared to be coasting to a comfortable win, but a messy offload attempt in their own 22 led to the first of three tries to the visitors. The second also came from a mistake, this time a missed pass fumble on the opposition 10m line. The third came after a series of soft penalties were conceded and closed the gap to just three points, 27 - 24. The CABs held on to close out the game and return to winning ways, albeit a lot closer than it really should have been. A full strength squad would have made a big difference, but so far the Colts have been resolute in the face of significant challenge and are unbeaten against Cornish opposition so far this season.
