Old Emanuel RFC 27-29 Eastleigh

14th Sep 2019

Eastleigh produced a strong performance away at Old Emanuel to come away with all 5 points on the opening weekend of the 2019/20 season.

Eastleigh started strong as Aaron Barnes bulldozed his way over the opposition winger to score the opening try.

Eastleigh's pick and go play had the home side running ragged, and the space opened for James Mitchell to charge through for Eastleigh's 2nd try. The conversion was scored by Matt Lovell to extend Eastleigh's lead to 0-12.

Following an error by the away side, Old Emanuel managed to maintain possession long enough to move the ball wide running at broken defence. The centre found space and dived over under the posts for their opening score. The extra 2 was added to close the gap to 7-12.

Eastleighs defence, which had been strong so far, was starting to be tested, and the home side forced a penalty for an infringement at the breakdown. The fly half sent the ball flying between the posts to further close the gap to 10-12.

Eastleigh went back to basics, and again, strong pick and go play paid dividends as Panos Logothetis ran through weak defence to extend Eastleigh's lead to 10-19 with the conversion scored by Lovell.

Old Emanuel pushed hard for a score and again Eastleigh gave up easy possession for the home side to score an easy try. The conversion was added to leave the half time score reading 17-19.

The home side started the 2nd half stronger, and forced an early penalty to push themselves into the lead at 20-19. Poor handling from Eastleigh allowed Old Emanuel another easy score to extend their lead to 27-19.

Eastleigh knew they had a game on to take something from this fixture, and felt their performance deserved a win. Strong forward play edged the away side ever closer to the line, and quick recycled ball presented Terry Papwell with the opportunity to dive over from close range. Lovell scored the conversion to create a 1 point game at 27-26.

Eastleigh maintained possession well, and as they worked ever closer to the Old Emanuel line, they forced the penalty. Matt Lovell stepped up, calm and collected, to put Eastleigh back in the lead at 27-29.

With the final seconds ticking away, Eastleigh ground out the last few passages of play before sending the ball sailing off the pitch to end the game.

James Mitchell was Eastleigh's Man of the Match.

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.
