Blue & Golds Lack Ideas As Lions Win

The visitor’s reply was swift. ’s neat pass to saw him ride a few tackles before sending Ben Calvert away on a run which saw him beat at least two defenders to go in behind the posts for a converted try to level the scores.

Lambwath regained the lead just before the break when it appeared the tackle had been completed, but the referee allowed play to go on and a try ensued besides the posts.

The hosts extended their lead shortly after the break with a converted try, but they fumbled the restart kick giving a set of six in the danger zone. After several charges at the line player coach , who took the man of the match award, forced his way over from the dummy half position.

The remainder of the game then proved to be a disappointment. Lambwath added further 16 unanswered points, and seemed to lack ideas when in possession. did provide the most forward momentum in the pack.

The visitors were guilty of not playing to the whistle at times with two tries being awarded when players were looking at the referee expecting him to call held.
