Eastleigh 48-0 Gosport and Fareham RFC

15th Sep 2018

Eastleigh ran in eight tries, including Jack Berry’s four scores, as they smashed Gosport and Fareham 48-0 at Bishopstoke Road.
The home side started with power and precision as they were able to exploit Gosport’s sloppy defence. After a few recycles of the ball, Tom Willoughby crashed over for the try. The conversion was missed but Eastleigh had the early lead of 5-0.
Eastleigh’s fast start continued as they soon recorded their second try; it was debutant James Mitchell with the break on the left flank and his pass found Jack Berry who raced in for the score. Another missed conversion meant the score remained at 10-0.
The visitors could not keep hold of the ball and the Eastleigh tails were up; after a series of dummies and good footwork, Jack Berry was able to bulldoze over for his second of the match. Phil Baldwin duly converted and extended his side’s advantage to 17-0.
After strong phases up through the 22’, Gosport’s number ten was shown the yellow card for repeated offences.
As half time fast approached, the home side were eager to secure the bonus point before the break; they did just that with the one man advantage and through James Mitchell whose strong first half performance was rewarded as he crashed over. Matt Lovell’s conversion was successful as Eastleigh went into half time with a 24-0 lead.
Continuing their strong attacking play, Eastleigh quickly recorded their fifth score of the match after the restart; hard carries brought them closer to the try line until John Williams went over. Matt Lovell was unable to extend the lead from the tee as the score remained 29-0.
Eastleigh’s pressure proved too much for their opponents once again and Jack Berry was able to complete his hat-trick; Terry Papworth’s run down the right flank, followed by a lovely waited pass allowed Berry to run in for the score. Matt Lovell converted from the tee and Eastleigh now had a 36-0 lead.
Just like last weekend, it was the skipper’s turn to score next; James Mitchell and Vincent Morse made metres through strong carries and Terry Papworth was able to cross over. Another successful conversion from Matt Lovell increased the advantage to 43-0.
But it was last season’s skipper Jack Berry who had the last laugh; hands down the left flank bought about his fourth try of the match as he was able to dive over in the corner. A tricky conversion was missed and the score remained 48-0.
Full time: Eastleigh 48-0 Gosport and Fareham

Man of the Match: James Mitchell

Effingham and Leatherhead RFC 7-54 Eastleigh

8th Sep 2018

After an impressive pre-season campaign, Eastleigh were looking to hit the ground running with a league opener away to Effingham and Leatherhead.
The visitors started well and were on the scoreboard within minutes; strong phases were put together and Phil Baldwin’s pass found Tom Willoughby who raced through for the first score. Matt Lovell converted to give Eastleigh an early 0-7 lead.
Eastleigh dominance continued however when the final pass was needed, it was poorly executed. The home side took advantage of this and raced down the other end of the pitch to score their first try of the new campaign. The conversion was successful to level the score at 7-7.
Having been on the front foot for most of the game, Eastleigh were eager to have their noses in front going into half time. Strong carries through the midfield from John Williams and Vincent Morse edged the visitors into their opponents’ 22’. An overlap on the right-hand side allowed Paul Fudio to crash over for the try. Matt Lovell duly converted to give his side a 7-14 lead.
Half Time: Effingham and Leatherhead 7-14 Eastleigh
Eastleigh started the second half as they did the first, putting their opponents on the back foot. As play crept into the home sides 22’, Phil Baldwin’s cross-field kick found Steffan Murray who powered over the try line. Matt Lovell converted and extended the lead to 7-21.
Effingham struggled to maintain possession and Eastleigh took advantage; Matt Lovell ran hard at the Effingham defence and Tom Willoughby’s lovely waited found Steffan Murray once again who darted over in the corner for the bonus point. Matt Lovell maintained his 100% kicking accuracy with the boot to leave the score at 7-28.
After a series of high tackles, one proved too many for Eastleigh as debutant Gareth Allen was given the yellow card and spent 10 minutes in the bin. Despite the 1 man deficit, another debutant Sam Arthur dug deep and was able to charge over the line. The conversion was converted to leave the score standing at 7-35.
Soon, Eastleigh were at it again and extended their advantage; a risky cross field kick in their own 22’ and a cheeky offload from Matt Lovell allowed Tom Willoughby to race down the right flank and score in the corner. Matt Lovell converted once again to give the visitors a 7-42 lead.
It was then time for the new skipper Terry Papworth to get on the score-sheet; a quick tap and go just inside the 22’ allowed him to bulldoze over the try line using his brawn, strength and power. Matt Lovell converted from far out and the score was 49-7.
2 minutes remained but there was still time to get some more points; Eastleigh did just that and a delicious Sonny Bill Williams offload from Russell Smith allowed Arron Enock to dot down in the corner. The conversion was missed but the scoreboard still showed 7-54.
Full time: Effingham 7-54 Eastleigh

Man of the Match: Paul Fudio
