(plus Rob for Dagenham!)
This was a League game which was downgraded to a friendly as Dagenham only had 11 players, so we lent the opposition 4 players so we could play the game.
The Colts started strongly with successive attempts on the Dagenham try line being ruled out as "held up". However the pressure soon told and Michael scored to put Upminster ahead. The visitors were soon 10 points to the good with a good opportunist try from Andrew after several plays near the Dagenham line.
At this point the Colts started to lose their direction and tries from Dagenham either side of half time plus a conversion put the home side ahead. Then Robert scored .... but for Dagenham ... much to the disatisfaction of his real teammates.
Upminster looked to be heading for defeat until an incident galvanised the team. The penalty resulting from that incident was 10 yards out and Ethan took full advantage but driving through the defense to score. This was followed by a nice breakthrough run by Josh who then converted his own try to give Upminster their second successive win.
