Portsmouth RFC 24-34 Eastleigh

27th Apr 2019

Eastleigh capped off a fantastic season for the club as they beat fellow Hampshire side Portsmouth to lift the Hampshire Bowl.
The visitors started the better of the two sides and were soon on the scoreboard; Russell Smith claimed the ball at the lineout and the dominant driving maul saw Terry Papworth open his side’s account for the afternoon. With windy conditions playing their part, the conversion was missed. 0-5.
Jack Berry and the Logothetis brothers ran hard at the Portsmouth defence but it was Will Rigglesford who scored next. His darting run from scrum half saw him beat the full back in a footrace down the right wing, and in for the score in the corner. Once again, the conversion was missed, 0-10.
Eastleigh pushed for further scores but Portsmouth managed to turn the ball over and clear their lines. However, the clearance kick gave possession straight back to Eastleigh and the crisp handling enabled the ball to find Tyson Evans who outpaced two defenders to score the try. 0-15.
Half time approached but Eastleigh still found time to score another try; the high kick wasn’t gathered and after a couple of bounces, Panos Logothetis capitalised on the loose ball and ran in under the posts. Matt Lovell duly converted to extend the advantage to 0-22.
The visitors started the second half as they ended the first and recorded another try within minutes. Paul Fudio and Dan Achilles carried hard into contact and as the ball went wide, Matt Blackman went over for the try. The conversion was missed, 0-27.
All of sudden, Portsmouth responded with three unanswered tries to close the gap to 17-27, it was evident that this final was anything but over.
Play began to get more competitive with both sides eager to get the next score; the ball spilled out the back of a ruck and was gathered by Terry Papworth who found himself with an open field in front of him. As the covering defence caught him, he offloaded to Aaron Barnes who raced through unopposed. Matt Lovell converted 17-34.
After Matt Blackman was given a yellow card, Portsmouth found time to register another converted try before full time to give Eastleigh a 24-34 victory.

Eastleigh 31-28 London Exiles RFC

23rd Mar 2019

After a week’s break, Eastleigh returned to action as they hosted London Exiles at Bishopstoke Road.
With relegation still a possibility, London Exiles were keen to leave with some valuable points and they were the first ones on the scoreboard; an infringement at the breakdown gave the visitor’s fly-half a chance at goal and his penalty kick was successful, 0-3.
A slick backline play saw Chris Buckett break through the defence and after a quick recycle, the ball went wide to Aaron Enock who scored in the corner. The conversion out wide was successful from Matt Lovell, 7-3.
Tom Willoughby and Paul Fudio tackled hard in an attempt to keep the London Exile attack at bay; but when the ball went wide, Chris Buckett anticipated the long pass and intercepted, running the length of the field for Eastleigh’s second try of the game. Matt Lovell converted to extend the advantage to 14-3.
As the home side pushed for another score, London Exiles’ defence was quickly turned into attack as they broke downfield. The scrambling Eastleigh defence were caught out of position and with the overlap out wide, the try was scored in the corner. The conversion was missed to leave the score standing at 14-8.
From the restart, the kick went deep into Exile territory and the clearance kick was charged down by Willo Logothetis, who re-gathered the ball and crashed over. Matt Lovell converted once again, 21-8.
As the first half was drawing to a close, Mark Winterholder was shown a yellow card for a deemed high tackle and from the resulting penalty, the visitors scored, 21-13.
Exiles started the second half as they ended the first and recorded their third try of the game; once again, a break in-field saw the winger race away into the corner. Another missed conversion left the score at 21-18.
In reply, Ricky Gormley and Ryan Kelly carried hard into contact and London Exiles were given a yellow card for repetitive infringements. Having just returned to 15 themselves, Eastleigh took advantage of the extra man and Tyson Evans crashed over for the score. Matt Lovell maintained his 100% kicking accuracy as he converted, 28-18.
For a period of time, Eastleigh switched off and the visiting side recorded a converted try and a penalty to level the scores at 28-28.
As few minutes remained, both sides pushed for the match-winning score; an infringement at the breakdown gave Matt Lovell the chance to kick at goal, 30 metres out. The ball was dispatched between the posts to give Eastleigh a 31-28 lead.
In an attempt to salvage a win, Exiles threw the ball wide but it was dropped and knocked- on, bringing about the final whistle.

Man of the Match: Matt Lovell
