Sev­enth heaven for hosts in Reds maul­ing

The Rugby Paper - - National League 2 South - ■ By NIGEL WILCE

CIN­DER­FORD scored seven tries as they over­came the chal­lenge of Re­druth in a highly en­ter­tain­ing en­counter.

The home side had to de­fend their line in the early stages, but they moved up­field and opened the scor­ing when Lewis Beer went over, with Alex Frame con­vert­ing.

More pres­sure near their op­po­nents’ line saw Frame ex­tend the lead with two penal­ties, be­fore lock Roger Birkin peeled off a driv­ing maul to score.

Re­druth re­sponded with a try from Kyle Mar­riott, which Neil­son Web­ber con­verted, but Cin­der­ford hit back when cen­tre Ed Bogue showed good skills to score an un­con­verted try.

Then on the stroke of half-time a kick ahead and chase led to winger Jack O’Con­nell scor­ing the home side’s bonus point try, which was well con­verted from Frame.

Lock Sean Buzza scored early in the sec­ond-half for Re­druth, but once again Cin­der­ford replied when Reuben Norville scored a con­verted try to make it 3712 after 57 min­utes of play with the home side in con­trol.

An­other kick ahead and chase then saw Norville grab his sec­ond try, which Frame con­verted again.

The vis­i­tors scored their third try when flanker Sam Matavesi fin­ished off a se­ries of pick and goes in the clos­ing stages, with Web­ber con­vert­ing.

There was still time for O’Con­nell to score his sec­ond, when he chased an­other kick.
