New Milton made a great start to the match and quickly put us under pressure with a very well organised attack and defence and it wasn't long before New Milton were 10 - 0 up. Tadley showed signs of a fight back and were unlucky not to score two tries. However, New Milton continued to apply the pressure and went in at half time a well deserved 20 - 0 up having dominated the half.
In the second half, Tadley showed what they are capable of and staged a fantastic fightback and kept New Milton out of the game. The forwards and backs once again combining to bring the score back to 20-15 showing a great team performance. Unfortunately the game had to be abandoned with 5 minutes to go due to injury so the final result stands at a 20-15 win to New Milton in what was a great match that really was a game of two halves.
