Leaders call the shots
‘I can’t fault the effort of the boys, they were still putting their bodies on the line right to the end’
ASHFORD 0 SEVENOAKS 80
Ashford were on the wrong end of another hammering against London South East 2 title-contenders Sevenoaks at Kinneys Field on Saturday.
Beaten 85-10 in the first meeting last October, they conceded 12 tries, while visiting kicker Isaac Winter landed five conversions in a personal tally of 25 points.
Skipper Rhys Fussell admitted: “We were up against it – Sevenoaks showed why they are top-of-the-table and pushing for promotion.
“They took every opportunity, we had chances to get over the whitewash ourselves had we been more clinical.
“I can’t fault the effort of the boys, they were still putting the hits in and their bodies on the line right to the end.
“Callum Stuckey had a great game in the back row and Shaun Woolford put his heart into everything.”
Fussell was forced off early with a twisted knee, while Dan Brown also went off with a head injury.
Both will be checked out by the physio ahead of the Kent Plate tie at Canterbury on Saturday.
Fussell added: “We want to field the strongest side possible for the game, aiming to gain momentum ahead of what will be a massive game against (third bottom) Crowborough the following weekend.”
