RI Back to Winning Ways
Bramley Well Cooked in the Sun............
On a glorious Spring afternoon RI recovered from a shaky start to record their best home win of the season.
RI started in their usual manner gifting the opposition 7 points by dropping the ball for a Bramley player to kick the ball chase and drop on it .Things got worse when after 25 minutes the visitors added a penalty to lead 10-0 .This stung RI into action when Darren Lonsdale made a great break to slip the ball to Franky Rossi to score in the corner .This was repeated on half time but with man of the match captain Frazer Land feeding Matt Hodgson to level the scores 10-10.
Bramley dropped the ball for Rossi to pick up and sprint for the line for his second try and Baptiste Brui to add the extras. The visitors scored a try but RI picked up their game and started to punish a tiring Bramley with tries from Rob Joy (2) a third from Rossi and 2 conversions from Brui to take the game 41-15 securing the bonus point.
