Eds 2s had to contend with a biting wind, a sloping pitch and a Leicestershire ref in this hard fought contest. The penalty count must have been close to 1 - 20. Nevertheless there were some real positives to be taken from the game - quite unbelievable defence being one. Eds two tries both came from driving forward power with Jez Hastings finishing a touch down from a 5m scrum and Sam Johnson diving over after a 30m driving maul. Nevertheless better discipline would have given the Eds a well deserved easy victory. Lessons to be learned here.
