LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT SEASON ALREADY


Ruislip visited Sudbury on Saturday on a mission to salvage one point from the game to prevent relegation and did so with ease, Sudbury had sealed their fate the week before and it seemed were quite happy to go through the motions knowing they were safe. The visitors scored two minutes into the game when they used their big forwards to gain ground with the pick and drive and then shipped wide to the wing to cross the stripe. A scrum in the twenty two saw Ruislip score again via the nine and the visitors were fourteen points up after five minutes leaving Sudbury shell shocked.
A third try came from a lineout mid-way in the Sudbury half as they shipped the ball wide from the set piece and Sudbury were in disarray with three quarters of the half left to play. Sudbury then got themselves organized and put together their first attacking moves and eventually Charles Jackson broke through to score from a penalty lineout and quick ball out to the backs. Sudbury continued to attack but Ruislip defended well until the break.
Sudbury scored first in the second half when Ruislip put up a high ball and Shaun Smith caught it cleanly and ran back at the visitors, breaking the first tackle and then passing to Jake Sumner to score. From the restart Ruislip attacked and crossed the Sudbury line only to be held up, but, from the ensuing five scrum pushed Sudbury back for a push over try with ten minutes played, a kick ahead from Ruislip saw them run through the Sudbury defence soon after.
Halfway through the period Sudbury made some changes but again the visitors scored to extend the lead to thirty points but Sudbury were not done and two tries by Paul Chaplin with darting runs in the last ten minutes helped to ease their embarrassment and give Sudbury a try bonus point at least.
