Allen and Simp­son shine in big vic­tory

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Rugby -

Can­ter­bury 3rds fi­nally got the wheels in mo­tion in the fourth game of the sea­son, run­ning away to a 67-6 vic­tory at home over East Peck­ham. The game got off to an aus­pi­cious start, with smart han­dling and phys­i­cal run­ning in the mid field mak­ing space for winger Ol­lie Simp­son to over. Can­ter­bury quickly fol­lowed with a try from Luke Mur­ray but East Peck­ham kept them­selves in the game by pun­ish­ing Can­ter­bury’s ill dis­ci­pline with three point­ers. The first half con­tin­ued in this way – Can­ter­bury tries, in­clud­ing par­tic­u­larly mem­o­rable solo ef­forts from Brad Allchurch and JJ Gal­lagher, fol­lowed up by East Peck­ham penal­ties. In the sec­ond half Can­ter­bury ac­cel­er­ated with more scores to An­dre Allen (three tries), Simp­son (two more to com­plete the hat-trick), Si­mon Jaynes and Brad Allchurch for his sec­ond. Allen’s third try saw him cover close to 200 me­tres, run­ning the di­ag­o­nal length of the pitch. Man-of-the-match went to Alex Fever for his ag­gres­sive car­ry­ing. This week Can­ter­bury pre­clude Ok­to­ber­fest with a match against Med­way 3rds at the Marine Travel Ground. NATIONAL LEAGUE 2 SOUTH
