Bar­bar­ians in dom­i­nant form

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport -

ASH­FORD bbs DEAL & b 3rds Jason Pot­ter and Tom Bartlett scored two tries each as the Bar­bar­ians eased to a com­fort­able Shep­herd Neame Dragon 4 East win at Sandy­acres on Satur­day. They made a strong start, with full-back Pot­ter putting them in front af­ter the ball went blind from the break­down. Cap­tain Ben King pow­ered his way through tack­les for another and sec­ond-row Guy Booker stretched the lead fur­ther, af­ter peel­ing away from a maul. New No.8 Harry Bull also made an im­pact for the Bar­bar­ians, re­cy­cling a spilt ball from the backs, be­fore storm­ing through the Lions’ de­fence. The sec­ond half pro­vided lit­tle respite for Bettes, with Pot­ter get­ting his sec­ond try, fol­low­ing a five-me­tre scrum. Fly-half Bartlett then added to his first-half score, gath­er­ing a loose pass, with his quick feet get­ting him over the line. The Bar­bar­ians are at home again on Satur­day, with Hast­ings & Bex­hill the visi­tors at Sandy­acres.
