Eastleigh 12-21 Old Tonbridgians RFC

8th Dec 2018

On a miserable day with horrendous weather conditions, Eastleigh entertained Old Tonbridgians at Bishopstoke Road.
Neither side had the advantage over their opponents in the first 10 minutes but it was the visitors who got the first try of the match. Powerful phases proved too much to handle as the try was scored in the corner. A tricky conversion was successful to extend the early lead to 0-7.
The home side hit back straight away; close quarter play edged them towards the try line and Connor Frain bulldozed over. Matt Lovell converted to level the scores at 7-7.
Ricky Gormley and Paul Fudio ran hard at the Old Tonbridgians’ defence however Eastleigh’s hard work was undone as their opponents registered their second try of the match on the left flank. The conversion far out was converted; 7-14.
As the second half started, Eastleigh was eager to get their noses in front; Dan Achilles excellently stole the ball at the lineout and the home side countered. After a few phases, perfectly waited hands along the backline allowed Jack Berry to dive over in the corner. The conversion was missed and the home side remained 2 points adrift, 12-14.
As the home side found themselves on the wrong end of some strange decisions, Old Tonbridgians were awarded a penalty try for repeated infringements in the scrum, giving them the automatic 7 points, 12-21.
Eastleigh pushed for any score as they tried to salvage something from the game but their opponents played it tight and when last play was called, they kicked it into touch to bring about the final whistle.
A disappointing day at the office for the home side as they felt that their efforts deserved more!
Final score 12 - 21

London Exiles RFC 10-28 Eastleigh

1st Dec 2018

Eastleigh travelled to the banks of the Thames to face bottom of the table, London Exiles, with the aim of getting back to winning ways following two straight defeats.

Exiles started the stronger and made inroads toward the Eastleigh line. Defence on the goal line could only hold out so long before the home side crashed over for the opening score. The conversion was missed to put Exiles into an early 5-0 lead.

Eastleigh began to put their patterns together, and following storming runs from Connor Frain and Jack Berry, Adam Kidd dove over from short range for the visitors' first try. Matt Lovell added the extra 2 to edge Eastleigh into the lead 5-7.

A number of penalties at the breakdown gave Eastleigh an attacking lineout on the Exiles 5m line. The ball was caught cleanly by Ricky Gormley, and the subsequent driving maul powered towards the line at pace. Panos Logothetis dotted down for Eastleigh's second try. Again Matt Lovell converted to open the lead to 5-14, and bring about the half time whistle.

Eastleigh maintained their momentum in the second half, forcing Exiles further back into their own half. Following powerful pick and go play, Paul Fudio spotted a gap, weaving past defenders, before powering over for Eastleigh's third try. Lovell maintained a flawless kicking display to increase the lead to 5-21.

Eastleigh were dominating in the scrum, and drove the Exiles pack backward toward the try line. An infringement forced the referee to flash a yellow card to the Exiles prop. Captain Terry Papworth elected for the scrum, and again Eastleigh drove toward the line. A further infrigment lead to the referee awarding a penalty try. The automatic 7 points extended Eastleigh's lead to 5-28, and brought about the bonus point.

With the final seconds ticking away, the home side had time for one last try to bookend Eastleigh's four scores. The try was the last act of the game, and the final whistle blew with the score reading 10-28.

Eastleigh were pleased with the strong performance and bonus point win. Eastleigh's Man of the Match was Paul Fudio for his all action performance, firstly at 10, and then at 9 following an injury to Will Rigelsford.
