East End The Year With Big Win vs Swans

Superb defence and clinical attacking put a good Swans side away.

East began playing their league opposition second time around with a visit from Swanage and Wareham 2s. The visitors were good and had East camped in their own half for long spells during the opening 20 minutes. As in most games this season though the Iford side soaked up all the pressure and waited for the break. It came with a kick that touched a hand, Thainy was able to gather the ball and pop to Sads who ran in to score. Spanky kicked.

Swans again attacked the hosts but East broke once more this time with pace and great hands. Sads again went over for his 12th try this season, a fantastic achievement from the bearded 7. Spank again kicked. 2 attacks 2 tries.

HT EAST 14 Swans 0

East gained some territory in the second half and kept the ball for longer periods. Captain Cel stormed through the defence to score and this was followed by a move from deep. Great support and hands saw Tres go over. Spank kicked both. Pooly was next to score as East played some of their best rugby of the year.

Cellidge again scored when, seemingly flat footed outside Swans 22, he showed great pace and strength to leave the defence standing. Tres kicked.

East 40-0 Swans

Great stuff, great tries. Rather flattering really, Swans were much better than the score suggests so the result is even more pleasing.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all players, supporters and members of EDRFC from me and Moose.
