Andover thirds looked good in the warm up while Fawley were learning names still in the pre-match huddle where Dave Owen got them quickly thinking together and on the right tracks. The Fawley collective gelled well and put thirteen points on, in the first half without reply, a penalty and two tries. Hopefully someone will fill in the names for this report at some point.
Turning round 13 - 0 up enabled Fawley some changes and Dave Owen swapped for Fijian Chris and Ross took on the skipper and hooking duties from obviously someone else, but I am not sure who.
The second half was a bit harder as Fawley conceded one try but scored two with one converted. Andover used up their bench and although rallied mid way in the half, Fawley kept control.
For me Men of the Match for Fawley were centres Chris at 12 and another name that deserts me now at 13. Hopefully someone will fill in the blanks later! But as ever this was an 18 (or 19?) man effort and all the guys played very well.
This was a good match to watch and I think that the Fawley vets are now up to speed to take on the Jersey 10's in style.
