Having battled out a 10 – 10 draw in their first match v Edenbridge in October, Midhurst were looking to keep up the momentum on their travels.
With a full squad of sixteen players making the trip despite appalling weather, it was decided to bring the kick off time forward in an attempt to avoid the worsening conditions.
The boys seemed to be unperturbed by the freezing cold and blustery wind and quickly settled into what was always going to be a tough battle on a very soft going pitch.
With regular number nine, Ross Seavill, recovering from injury, team captain Oli Catt switched from hooker to scrum half with great success.
Early tries came from full back Charlie Quilter and centre Charlie Steele, with debutant centre Hugo Ormerod also converting from some good forward play, led by the ever present Dan Stevens.
Midhurst continued to play with great determination and discipline, in increasingly inclement weather, crossing the line on four more occasions to run out 35 – 5 winners.
The boys have one more fixture, a friendly versus Petersfield away, on Sunday 17th December before the Christmas break, followed by their next league match at home v Uckfield on Sunday 7th January.
