Debutants make a good impact

Head Coach Tim Robinson wisely elected to take a mixture of current 1st XV, squad players and Colts to contest the semi-final of the Lincs County Cup, on a cool and windy evening at Lincoln RFC.
Both teams enjoyed the freedom from the demands of league rugby to produce 80 minutes of free flowing and at times highly skilful attacking rugby with the Greens overall superiority evident throughout, though much credit must go to Lincoln for their determination to compete.
The starting XV welcolmed Grant Elliott, Jordan Nuttall, Rory Randall-Tyrell and Liam Brunt to the fold.
Scores came at regular intervals with 5 tries being scored in the first half by Keiron Bournes, Dave Garbutt, Jake Baron and a brace from the speedy debutant Liam Brunt.
Steve Johnson was immaculate with the boot converting all 5 tries to give a half time score of 35-0.

Following good approach play at the start of the second half Lincoln scored first with a try from Joe Moore converted by Richie Dixon to give a score of 35-7.

It was good to see players being introduced into the fray and there were pleasing contributions from Callum McSherry, Kane Linklater, Matty Fielding, Jay Johnson, "Jeppo" Jepson and Clappo. There was even a cameo appearance from Mick Dunk Snr. who continues to defy the years.

Normal service was resumed for the remainder of the half and tries followed at regular intervals from Tom Foster, a brace from Callum McSherry and a try from the versatile Colin Chapman following some slick interplay. Two tries were converted to give a final score of 59 pts to 7.
The Greens now look forward to the final against either Grimsby or Market Rasen on May 2nd.
