This week's opponents Old Luctonians, Bridgnorth, having beaten them twice already this season, inexplicably limped to a 45-12 defeat. Playing, perhaps appropriately, in green, Bridgnorth failed to take advantage of a strong breeze in their favour and also, like England last week, kicked away possession time and again.
Bridgnorth's Jake Goulson gained an early line out but a wayward kick set Lucton in motion and only a poor pass and blatant knock on by their right winger, foiled the first score. A few minutes later however Lucton forwards drove over for the first touch down for an unconverted try 5-0.. Bridgnorth secured a penalty on the far right and quick hands and straight running brought a try on the extreme left which Llew Williams converted with a great kick.
Minutes later a lightening break by Gareth Bladen brought an unconverted try for Ted Parker
Just on the break Lucton received a yellow card but Bridgnorth didn't take the kick, opting for a lineout and came away empty handed, but with their noses in front 5-12. at the break.
From the restart Lucton exploited some space in midfield and using the breeze effectively an unconverted try, plus two goals, quickly gave them the lead back 24-12. Poor tackling by Bridgnorth midfield saw two breakaways and the now traditional yellow card, this time unluckily for Connor Nicholls, in the last quarter, didn't help the Bridgnorth cause.
Joe Cave came off for Will Rogers to make his first team debut and Lucton took advantage of the disruption to score a forwards try and with Lucs firmly in control at 45-12 Bridgnorth leaked gaps in their defences. Only Afea Aisila and Luis Evitts twice stood alone as last line of Bridgnorth defence to prevent the scoreboard going over 60
Next week Bridgnorth meet old rivals Newport on the Edgar Davies ground and hopefully will have learned some lessons.
