Romsey V Fawley

Romsey crush fawley on their first home game of the season

Romsey went into this game on the back of a disappointing start to the season; poor performance and result, added desire to a young hungry Romsey team playing at home for the first time.

Fawley won the toss and elected to receive the kick off allowing Romsey the chance to set the marker for the game. Romsey achieved possession of the ball and started attacking with self belief. Opportunities quickly presented themselves out wide. Jim Windibank and Alex Hill set the tempo using the full width of the pitch.

Chances fell quickly to Romsey and they eventually made use of them through return centre Henry Ashton who time and again proved too strong for the Fawley defence and burst through to score the first of his two tries.

The Romsey scrum remained strong and put Romsey on the front foot. Returning Matt Easton, Aaron Gallagher, and Ian Thomas led the Romsey drive. The forward pressure allowed Romsey to gain territory. Gus Layton joined the back row and assaulted the Fawley line coming close to the try line before being hauled down and offloading to Dan Penn-Newman to score easily under the posts.

Romsey didn’t relent and continued their game plan, attacking the fly half with big carries from Josh Syvret and Dom Mortimer, before attacking quickly in the backs through Andy Herriott who stood up well from targeting from the Fawley back row.

As the second half arrived the Romsey back row led the charge, Rob Hart and John Allen continued their powerful runs, now assisted by Jake Fullford on for the injured Layton. Rob Stent bravely put his boy on the line with some consistent tackling.

Romsey continued to score points, a hat trick from Penn-Newman and a second from Ashton with successful kicks from Robbie Heighway produced an impressive score. Further substitutes Sam Swinstead and Andy Hill joined in the rout. An inspired PJ Boden came on towards the end of the game and made a significant impact, this time on the wing, making many meters before the end of the game.

Romsey take on Chineham away this weekend, 15:00 kick off.
