Colts Eight Try Win at Saltash

Saltash Colts. 28 pts Launceston Colts. 44

The CABs Colts visited Saltash with a number of players missing, although the home side were only able to field 15 themselves. A flying start saw Joe Vanstone collect straight from kick off and almost score before Sam Duke did score with the recycled ball. A nice move down the right wing then led to Luke Couch bursting through a gap and scoring out wide to make it 10 - 0 to the CABs. Some sustained driving and recycling through the phases by the forwards enabled Cian Baker to force his way over the line. Will Pharo converted to extend the lead to 17 - 0. An injury to a Saltash player then saw Finn Turley pull on the home side shirt to keep the numbers at 15 each. Good hands from Joe Vanstone allowed Charlie Tummon to make a nice break and score under the posts. Will Pharo again converted, making it 24 - 0. Just before half time the successful pairing of Joe Vanstone and Luke Couch made a lovely break from one 22 to the other. The second half was a bit of a contrast with both sides scoring four tries each. Will Pharo and Luke Couch shared the second half playing for Saltash. This did seem to open up some gaps in the centre for the home side to exploit. The half started well for the CABs. An injury to Kyle Tozer moved Charlie Crichton to scrum half and he took an opportunity to extend the lead with a try under the posts. Leion Cole sliced the conversion to leave the score at 29 - 0. He then made up for this with a a try of his own after a great break from Harry Pridham. Leion's second conversion went the same way as his first, the score remaining 34 - 0 to the CABs. Two of the four Saltash tries were scored by Will Pharo, the first from a lovely interception on the CABs left wing. With the home side's confidence increasing Finn Turley settled the nerves with a lovely run down the right wing, racing over to make it 39 - 14. Leion Cole's third missed conversion raised laughs from all, himself included. Saltash scored their third try from a scrum (all of which were uncontested in this game) to make it 39 - 21. Joe Vanstone then scored a fine solo try, picking the ball up on the left wing and evading numerous defenders with a mazy, cross-field run and scoring under the posts. His own attempted conversion was up there with Leion's previous three! Saltash rounded off the high scoring game with a fourth try of their own to make the final score 44 - 28 to the CABs Colts.
