Eastleigh 15-12 Old Reigatian RFC

15th Feb 2020

With Eastleigh’s pitches proving unplayable, the venue had changed to Southampton RFC but it was totally worth it.

Conditions played their part right from the get go but it was Eastleigh who opened the scoring; Will Rigglesford’s dummy left the Reigatian defence chasing shadows as he raced through and beat the covering defence to score underneath the sticks. Matt Lovell converted, 7-0.

As possession constantly changed hands, neither team were able to build up chances. This was until the visiting side put same phases together and scored a converted try of their own to level the scores at 7-7.

The second half saw much of the same with both sides eager to edge in front; Ryan Kelly and Dan Achilles scrummaged well as Eastleigh’s pack began to dominate. It was however, James Mitchell who bulldozed over for the score.

Despite battling against the wind, Old Reigatian quickly responded as simple hands down the left flank left a clear overlap which was perfectly exploited.

Neither side were willing to give in to their opponents but as Eastleigh turned on the pressure, Old Reigatian’s discipline began to get the better of them as Matt Lovell was able to kick a penalty to nudge his side back in front, 15-12 and this was how things ended.

Farnham RUFC 3-6 Eastleigh

1st Feb 2020

It was that time of season again, as Eastleigh locked horns with Farnham in a nail-biting encounter at Wilkinson Way.

Neither side were willing to give an inch to their opponents; the Farnham frontline tested the Eastleigh defence but tackles from Richie O’Donnell and Nic Blake kept the home side at bay.

The visitors’ pick and go play proved effective as they edged closer to the Farnham try line; an infringement at the breakdown gave Matt Lovell the chance to open the scoring, in which he did so to give his side a 0-3 lead.

Eastleigh’s defence had stood firm as their opponents continued to knock on the door for the remainder of the half; the score was levelled after a penalty for Farnham which meant that both sides went into the interval, all square at 3-3.

It was now Farnham’s turn to defend their try line as the visiting side ran hard over the gain line; Ryan Kelly bulldozed his way through multiple tackles to edge Eastleigh closer until a penalty was awarded for an infringement at the breakdown. Matt Lovell held his nerve and slotted the placement kick to edge his side back in front 3-6.

The game was now Eastleigh’s to lose and all they could do was keep Farnham out; Paul Fudio and Panos Logothetis ensured the visiting defence remained on top as only minutes remained.

With time up, Eastleigh managed to secure the ball at the breakdown and Will Rigglesford punted the ball clear into touch to bring about the final whistle.

Man of the Match: Dan Henry
