Eastleigh 50-11 Old Cranleighans RFC

2nd Mar 2019

With promotion still a possibility, Eastleigh welcomed Old Cranleighans to Bishopstoke Road in search of 5 big points.
Eastleigh came firing out the blocks and were instantly on the scoreboard; efficient pick and go play drove the home side towards the line and it was Ryan Kelly who powered over. Matt Lovell converted from outwide to extend the early advantage to 7-0.
The home side seemed more competitive at the breakdown and an infringment at the breakdown gave Eastleigh another chance, as the resulting penalty was kicked to the corner. After a clean catch and drive, Eastleigh's maul edged closer to the score and Paul Fudio went over. The conversion was missed, 12-0.
The penalty count began to get the better of the home side and Old Cranleighans quickly recorded two penalty goals to close the gap to 12-6.
As half time fast approached, Eastleigh recorded their third try of the match; Willo Logothetis and Dan Achilles carried hard until Tom Willoughby crossed for the try. Matt Lovell converted, 19-6.
Eastleigh started the second half just as they did the first and remained on the front foot throughout. The tryline was in site and slick hands down the left allowed Russell Smith to dot down over the line. A tricky conversion was missed to leave the score showing 24-6.
The Old Cranleighans centre was given his marching orders for a deliberate knock-on and Eastleigh qucikly took advantage of the extra man. Tom Willoughby broke through the defence and his offload found Ricky Gormley who raced over. The conversion was successful, 31-6.
Having just returned to 15 players, the visitor's winger was awarded the yellow card for another deliberate knock-on. Having stepped two players, it looked as though Russell Smith and his fancy footwork were in for the next score however he was tackled just short. From the resulting breakdown, Ryan Kelly crashed over for his second. The conversion was missed, 36-6.
The visitors turned defence into attack in an attempt to salvage any consolation from the game. The ball went wide and with an overlap, the returning winger crossed for the score. A tricky conversion was missed, 36-11.
As Eastlieigh competed in the ruck, the ball spilled out the side and Chris Buckett capitalised on it and ran half the length of the field for the try. Matt Lovell converted to extend the advantage to 43-11.
Last play was called and Eastleigh had the last laugh as James Mitchell's strength allowed him to brush off the tackle and cross for the score. Matt Lovell converted to leave the final score showing 50-11.

Man of the Match: Willo Logothetis

The conversion was just short, 3-17.
As half time approached, Eastleigh were reduced to 14 men as Harry Amos was given 10 minutes in the bin.
