Law show real endeavour against top of the table

By

Try: Emmett Penalty: Jones

It is strange scenario to say that a match where you get beaten 5 tries to 1 that this was one of the team's performances of the season but the effort and attitude demonstrated by the Law in trying conditions really was outstanding against the recently crowned league champs.

The first 30 minutes of the match was all Law Society, good ball retention and discipline and hard running maintained possession and territory throughout the opening salvos. The were awarded two penalty kicks, one hit and one missed by Tom Jones. In particular the pack of forwards really stood up to be counted against physical and talented pack (a number of whom are used to higher grade rugby than Surrey 1).

Unfortunately the Laws 3-0 lead close towards half time was not substantial enough and eventually the Reeds back line fired making 3 breaks in final 10 minutes of the half 2 resulting in converted tries and one in a yellow card for Alex Tindall for a seatbelt tackle.

The Law were down but not out and again after some brilliant ball carrying were rewarded with a penalty that the ballsy Mackenzie Davis kicked close to the try line for a 5 metre attacking line out. The Law knew that chances were scarce in this game and had to be clinical to execute and they did so with perfection. A pinpoint lineout and ferocious maul drive saw Josh Emmett go over for a score, the missed conversion left the gap at 6 points but all parties knew it was game on.

Sadly the game slowly slipped away from the Law as far as points were concerned and although the effort remained at 100% the scrum was starting to get overpowered and there was little the Law could do to overturn the territorial advantage the Reeds set piece was gaining them. Eventually a quick tap and go penalty from the Reeds scrum half saw them with their 3rd try and a 4th came in the shape of a very lucky bounce from a chip through hitting their winger at full pace. The final try for Reeds was a good demonstration of their fitness and skill but probably flattered them considering how toughly fought most of the game had been.

The Law can take real credit in holding the deserved league champs so well considering the beat downs they have put on some teams in the league this season.
