’ VERULAMIANS RFC 5 pts --- OLD STREETONIANS RFC 71 pts
Once again Verulamians came up against a highly organised side whose superior fitness really showed in the second half. Although the opposition led by 21 – 5 at half time Vees forwards made it a more than even first half in which player coach Sam Perry scored a well worked scrum try . The other staggering thing was that the referee gave SIX penalties within the last ten minutes of the half which strangely didn’t merit a PENALTY try. During this period of intense pressure Joe Baker, Tim Fretter, Darren Westhead and Joe Breeze worked tirelessly but were just unable to cross the elusive white line.
Old Streetonians turned round at half time, changed gear and ran in another 8 tries after Vees had another set of injuries that weakened their defence effectiveness.
Next week Vees visit Royston RFC which is likely to be another rigorous test. ‘’
