Happy New Year as Colts Return to League Action

Launceston Colts. 43 pts Liskeard Colts. 14

The CABs Colts returned to action after the festive break on a heavy pitch at Polson. The visitors, Liskeard, started well and it looked like this was to be a very close game. The CABs took a while to get into the game, looking like they had to shake off a few too many mince pies. Once they got into their stride however they started to dominate. Leion Cole had to leave the field early on after a knock, Saiosi coming on for his first appearance of the season and putting in a solid performance. Aiden Jacob opened the scoring after finding a gap wide on the right and then cutting across to score near the posts. Ollie Bebbington used his pace to again open up the visitor's defence on the right wing and score in the corner. A series of penalties in their own 22 ended with a yellow card for kicking the ball in a ruck. Will Cowan-Dickie made a good break down the left, bulldozering through the first tackle and offloading nicely just as he was bundled into touch. A lovely little chip kick from Kyle Tozer invited Toby May onto it, he took it cleanly and raced in to make the half time score 15 - 0 to the CABs Colts. The second half started with the forwards defending resolutely in their own 22. Lawrence Armstrong intercepted a pass on the half way line and showed a clean pair of heels to the defenders as he raced over to score. Will Pharo converted this one to make it 22 - 0. The visitors then reacted well and picked up their first points with a converted try. Charlie Short then fought his way to the line to score near the posts, Will Pharo converted to make it 29 - 7. A break from Will Cowan-Dickie should have released Joe Vanstone on the left, but the recycled ball was collected by Aiden Jacob whose strength saw him to the try line. Charlie Crichton converted this one nicely to make it 36 - 7. After what looked like a clear knock-on with everyone standing still thinking play must have stopped, Liskeard played to the whistle and secured their their second try of the game. The final points of the game came from Aiden Jacob's hat-trick try, converted again by Charlie Crichton to make the final score 43 - 14 to the CABs. A much more comfortable scoreline than the first ten minutes suggested it would be.
