The Colts took on their long time rivals Wellington today in a top of the table clash. On a muddy pitch they put on a great display scoring early and backing the first score up with several quick tries to create a big lead. The forwards really took the game to their opponents and created a great platform from which the backs could launch wave after wave of attacks ultimately resulting in tries out wide or through the middle.
Taunton seemed intent on finding the weakness in the Wellington defence and never dropped their intensity throughout the game. As the pitch began to deteriorate the skill levels from both sides were tested. Credit must go to Wellington for refusing to lie down and they were rewarded with a good break away try. This seemed to inspire Taunton further as they crossed the Wellington line several times afterwards.
A good win, credit to both sides for such a well played game in difficult conditions.
