Gosport and Fareham RFC 5-24 Eastleigh

19th Jan 2019

After having their match abandoned in December, Eastleigh travelled to Gosport and Fareham for their rearranged fixture.
Neither side dominated early procedures but it was the visitors who scored first; James Mitchell and Ryan Kelly carried hard as Eastleigh pushed towards the try line and it was Sean Hayes who dotted down for the score. Matt Lovell duly converted, 0-7.
Eastleigh continued to pressure their opponents forcing them to make mistakes. After tight play through the middle of the park and then quick hands down the right flank, Aaron Enock found himself one-on-one with the fullback. He chipped over the top and then collected to give his side a second try. A tricky conversion out wide was missed, 0-12.
As half time approached, there was time for Eastleigh to score again before the break. The high ball was dropped and Chris Buckett pounced on the loose ball; he ran through but with a defender approaching, he passed to Adam Gallagher who darted through. The conversion was unsuccessful, 0-17.
Eastleigh pushed for the bonus point and their efforts were soon rewarded. Russell Smith and John Williams drove the pack over the gain line and Dan Henry powered over for the try. Aaron Enock converted to extend the lead by a further 2 points, 0-24.
As the home side tried to salvage any sort of consolation, tackles from the likes of Paul Fudio and Ricky Gormley denied them until in the final play, where the space was exploited and the try was scored. The conversion was wide to leave the score standing at 5-24.

Man of the Match: Ryan Kelly

Eastleigh 17-16 Farnham RUFC

12th Jan 2019

After being narrowly denied victory in the last meeting, Eastleigh were determined to get the better of their rivals Farnham at Bishopstoke Road.
The home side were very slow to start, allowing their opponents to dominate possession. An infringement at the breakdown gave Farnham the chance to open the scoring; the kicker duly converted his placement kick, 0-3.
With ball in hand, Eastleigh looked dangerous however that took a blow as James Mitchell was given the yellow card for what was deemed a deliberate knock on.
John Williams and Tom Willoughby ran hard at the Farnham wall but sloppy tackling in defence meant the Farnham 10 could dance his way through for the try underneath the posts. He added the conversion to give his side an early 10-0 lead. He later added a penalty to extend the advantage by a further three points, 13-0.
The home side looked promising going forward; Tom Willoughby broke the line but was brought down. As the scrambling Farnham defence repositioned, space out wide allowed the returning James Mitchell to power over for the try. Matt Lovell converted 7-13.
After the break, Eastleigh attacked with power and endeavour; hard yards were made by Paul Fudio and Terry Papworth as the home side edged towards the try line. The inside ball found John Williams who bulldozed over for the score. Matt Lovell duly converted to edge his side in front, 14-13.
After letting a 13 point lead slip, Farnham were eager to nip back in front; an infringement at the breakdown gave the Farnham 10 the chance to put his side in the lead. He did so and once again, Eastleigh would have to dig deep, 14-17.
Strong running lines from Ricky Gormley and Connor Frain put Eastleigh on the front foot; multiple infringements at the breakdown resulted in a yellow card awarded to a Farnham player.
With the one man advantage, Eastleigh exploited the space and crept into the Farnham half; another infringement gave Eastleigh the penalty. Terry Papworth opted for the kick at goal and having just missed one, Matt Lovell calmly stepped up and swiftly dispatched the ball beyond the posts, 17-16.
With minutes remaining, Eastleigh defended with all their might; huge hits from James Mitchell and Connor Frain kept the Farnham backline at bay until Eastleigh conceded another penalty, 40 metres out. Last play was called and Farnham opted for the kick at goal. After a nervous run up, the kick narrowly missed away to the left and the ball was kicked out. Eastleigh win!

Every single Eastleigh player played with heart, passion and determination in order to get the win! Connor Frain, James Mitchell and Terry Papworth all had fantastic games but man of the match went to John Williams for his all round performance.
