Holbrook Climb the Table for second week in a row


The game started very well for Holbrook with a well earned try inside the first 6 minutes of the game following a very physical battle to the Try line, Things then went down hill slightly when Pulborough scored their first try of the match just after the 10 minute mark bringing the scores level at 7-7.
Holbrook then managed a second try which was not converted and then Pulborough pulled back another try which was converted and Pulborough took the lead for the first and thankfully only time in the game. Holbrook then managed to get back another converted Try, meaning going into the break the scores were Pulborough 14 - 19 Holbrook.

Holbrook had a poor first half in comparison to previous games and the half time team talk was not the most pleasant from the coach, the failing areas were identified as support, communication and a general lack of enthusiasm, the players understood and knew how they needed to change the game to secure the win.

The second half kicked off and within minutes Holbrook had another try under their belt, the game Holbrook played in the second half was totally different the first half, the support was there at the break downs, the communication improved and the holes in Pulborough's defence were now being exploited time and time again with 50 points beings scored by Holbrook in the second half alone.

A few bad referee decisions that did not go in Holbrook's favour started to cause some upset amongst the players particularly the Captain Connor Pascoe who was penalised for throwing his toys out of his pram with 5 minutes to go, which could have been costly but thankfully the Holbrook defence was on form in the second half and prevented any further points being conceded.

Try Scorers for this week were Tom Smith (2), Joel Murray (2), Derrick Foster, Chris Blake, Jon Dall, Sam Bolitho, Ashley Cook, Mike Searle & Carl Brewster
