Colts Draw with Welsh Tour Side

Launceston Colts. 24 pts Bridgend Athletic 24

A feisty and very close game against a strong side from South Wales, served as a timely test for the CABs Colts ahead of their Cornwall Cup final next weekend. A slow start and some missed tackles in midfield enabled the visitors to open up a 12 point lead with two tries and a conversion. Number eight Joe Stansfield opened the CABs account with a try from the base of a penalty scrum on the 5m line. The scrum proved to be the strong point for the CABs, while the lineout was a weak point that needs to be worked on. Will Pharo closed the gap to two points with an unconverted try, 10 - 12. Bridgend put a nice little grubber kick between the defence and a fumble of the loose ball allowed them to pick up and extend their lead to 10 - 17. Shortly before half time a lovely little move in the visitors 22 led to a great line from Aiden Jacob which Kyle Tozer picked out perfectly. Will Pharo converted to make it all square going into the break. The second half started with a fine right foot volley by Luke Couch that prevented a penalty kick from going into touch and took the lineout 20m upfield. Will Cowan-Dickie's kicking from hand was excellent throughout. A great steal of the ball from an opposition free kick led to Joe Stansfield's second try as the home side took the lead for the first time in the game. Will Pharo converted to make it 24 - 17. The CABs were then "penned" back in their own half for much of the remainder of the half as they conceded penalty after penalty. This sustained pressure led to a converted try for the Welsh side to leave the final score at 24 points apiece. A very enjoyable game that enabled a the players to stake strong claims for their place in the 22 for the cup final. The final will be played at St. Austell rugby club next Saturday, 14th April, against Penzance. The Colts would benefit hugely from your support if you can make it down there.
