3rd Team (Friars) - Report
|Drifters II||41||vs||14||Abbey III|
Drifters 41 – 14 Abbey
Abbey produced a scintillating display of rugby at Farnham Common, but lapses in concentration and gifted opportunities gave a strong Drifters side the victory.
Abbey had an array of talent on show callum house with his ginger flowing locks may look like a right Jessie, but looks flatter to deceive, and he frequently did that with his mazy runs. ashley pomeroy was like the finely tuned formula one car his brother drives. Where is that Ferrari? Pomeroy pranced down the pitch like that famous emblem knocking the Drifters players to the floor. Both House and Pomeroy were strong in the tackle going forward and in defence and were constant threats.
Kevin Clift not dead yet but still can’t pass managed 80 minutes of smash and grab without his leg falling off. His partner in crime was Andy Verran; he also stayed the course before he had to come home. (here boy)
christian harris played his 21st game of the season and was reliable as ever putting a crunching tackle in in the last five minutes to sum up Abbey’s commitment and team spirit.
Liam Rolland Captained the side and made some inspirational runs before he ran out of sugar and had to come off with 20 minutes to go. His departure allowed Drifters to go into Hypo mode and score three late tries.
Third team pin up BOY George House scored again, we can not say anymore as we have run out of superlatives for his performances.
But we can string a few together for the other God of the team he descended upon us from the heavens of the second team and he spake. He said “behold I will be your fly Half and will be bloody good at it”. And he was. Nice thing about Flower always comes up smelling of roses.
Martin Collier may not be able to throw straight (according to the referee) (remember he can make his own decision) But he can run straight and his support player was a kin to a master of ceremonies picking up the piece when the big guns had finished their play.
Adam Whale, and chris coyle made the scrum solid,and Coyle even kicked a conversion, but Wayne and Mong added the power and finesse to allow the scrum to drive forward for Callum Wylie’s try.
Callum playing his first senior game warmed up on the wing with a delightful chip and chase and finished the game at scrum half after the Little White Bull had run out of steam at 60 minutes. Wylie claims to have beaten off two tackles to score but the forwards had already pushed the scrum across the line. Wylie also converted.
Ed House and Jack Brown came off unscathed having contributed to some strong runs in the centres and Ed's shoulder held as he was dropped from 10 feet by the Drifter’s second row. Jack was not Flash and Ed was not China so we need to change their names, but Jack was not angry either.
