Old Reigatian RFC 19-19 Eastleigh

26th Oct 2019

Having narrowly lost to Farnham last weekend, Eastleigh travelled to Old Reigatian where they were looking to continue their unbeaten record away from home.
With windy conditions playing their part, both sides struggled to maintain possession of the slippery ball; however, the home side did end up getting on the scoreboard through a try in the corner. The conversion out wide was successful to give Old Reigatian the 7-0 lead.
Having defended for much of the half, Eastleigh continued on the back foot and was put further behind when a box kick was charged down and grounded for the try.
In order to get a result from the game, Eastleigh knew they’d have to turn up in the second half to try and reduce the 12-0 deficit.
Having brought on Ryan Kelly, Eastleigh’s pack now started to get the better of their opponents’; Nic Blake and Dan Henry forced the defence backwards, before Dan Achilles crashed over, 12-5.
Eastleigh continued to pressurize their opponents as they looked for another score. The forwards had got the away side to within touching distance, when Will Rigglesford snuck over. Aaron Barnes converted to level the scores at 12-12.
Paul Fudio and James Mitchell continued to tackle well, as Eastleigh’s defence stood firm. As the ball spilled out the back of a ruck, Will Logothetis pounced on the loose ball and charged through an open field. His pass found Will Rigglesford who outpaced the covering defender to score his second of the match. Aaron Barnes converted out wide to extend the advantage to 12-19.
Old Reigatian began to put phases together and as they reached the Eastleigh 22’, they were soon over for their third score of the match. The conversion was successful, to level the scores once again at 19-19.
Both sides had chances to score the deciding try but came up short and this meant the game ended all square at 19-19.

Man of the Match: Dan Achilles

Eastleigh 22-26 Farnham RUFC

19th Oct 2019

The rivalry between Eastleigh and Farnham continued for another season as the two sides took part in another thrilling encounter at Bishopstoke Road.
As both sides settled into the game, it was clear that both teams knew that the first score would be vital; it was the visitors who took the lead courtesy of a combination of missed tackles. The conversion extended Farnham’s early advantage to 0-7.
Having retained possession from the restart, Eastleigh pushed for an instant response. Carries from Dan Henry and Nic Blake troubled the defensive line, before James Mitchell barged his way through for the try. This was shortly followed by a Matt Lovell penalty which gave his side the lead, 10-7.
Errors began to creep into Eastleigh’s display and Farnham took full advantage as their driving maul, drove over the line for the score.
As half time approached, Matt Lovell recorded two well struck penalty kicks to nip his side back in front at 16-14.
The home side continued where they left off as Matt Lovell continued his 100% accuracy off the boot as he increased Eastleigh’s lead by another three points.
Eastleigh’s physicality seemed to get the better of their visitors but their hard work was undone as Farnham responded with two quick tries to completely turn the scoreboard back in their favour, 19-26.
Tom Willoughby and Ricky Gormley carried hard into contact, as the home side looked for a score, knowing little time remained. Matt Lovell converted yet another penalty which meant that one try was all that was needed, 22-26.
However, Eastleigh’s mistakes simply got the better of them and as the ball was turned over in the lineout, the ball was punted into touch to bring about the final whistle.
