Ram­pant lead­ers rain 14 tries

Uxbridge Gazette - - SPORT -

things were go­ing, with a try in the open­ing five min­utes, and with lots of breaks and ex­cel­lent sup­port play, the score soon started rack­ing up in favour of the vis­i­tors as Ick­en­ham stamped their author­ity on the game.

The hosts tried to rally af­ter the break but to no avail as the Ick­en­ham de­fence held firm and it wasn’t long be­fore the vis­i­tors got back into the game, with more tries made from break­aways and steal­ing of the ball.

Although the match was called off with five min­utes to go due to a Bar­bar­ians player in­cur­ring a head in­jury which nece­si­tated an am­bu­lance be­ing called, the re­sult was al­lowed to stand.

Luke Bir­chall was named man of the match for his brace of tries and the su­perb lines he ran along­side bril­liant sup­port run­ning. Nick Creak also nailed a brace of tries, while Sam Poo­ley, Chris Creak, Rob McClay and Irin Ti­wana all crossed the try line too, with Ti­wana kick­ing two con­ver­sions and Stevens one.
