All Golds run in dozen tries in con­vinc­ing win

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -


THE All Golds con­cluded their league cam­paign and go into the play-offs on the back of a 62-24 win over Swin­don St Ge­orge.

They re­cov­ered from a slug­gish start to score 38 unan­swered points to lay the foun­da­tion for their high­est score of the sea­son.

All Golds crossed for a dozen tries with Ge­orge Bvuma taking his tally to seven for the sea­son with a brace; Ash Lewis and Kaine Dimech also cross­ing twice.

The ref­eree sin-binned four play­ers in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents and sent off Swin­don’s Richard White.

Swin­don led early, Jack Daynes pow­er­ing through af­ter three min­utes, Mark Sharp adding the ex­tras.

But Lewis dum­mied over for his first try and lev­elled the score from the tee.

Con­nor Tom­ley gave Swin­don the lead again be­fore Sharp went over for a try and when Dimech ghosted through, the All Golds were four points in ar­rears.

Kieran Webb then stepped in­side to score. Lewis added the goal to give the All Golds a lead they were not to lose.

Mar­cus Brown then picked up from dummy half to stroll over, Joe Uren adding the goal and just be­fore the break, the All Golds ex­tended their lead to 28-14, Bvuma rac­ing to the posts. Joe Uren con­verted.

Bvuma was in again to score in the open­ing minute of the sec­ond pe­riod be­fore Jack Uren skipped over un­der the posts.

Then, af­ter a long con­ver­sa­tion with both cap­tains and the play­ers con­cerned, White saw red and both Uren broth­ers were shown yel­low cards.

Lewis scored un­der the posts be­fore the man ad­van­tage paid off for the vis­i­tors and Daynes ram­paged through out wide.

Im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards Todd John­son raced over un­der the posts to cut the deficit to 44-24.

Mike Ad­dis ex­tended the All Golds lead af­ter be­ing sent through a gap in the de­fence.

No sooner had the All Golds re­turned to full strength than Ad­dis was trudg­ing to the touch­line af­ter re­tal­i­at­ing to a strong tackle and min­utes later Swin­don’s Liam Rowe was sin-binned for dis­sent.

The All Golds fin­ished with three tries of in­creas­ing skill. A Swin­don er­ror was pun­ished as Brown kicked a loose ball for­ward on half­way for Dimech to run away to score.

Then Swin­don forced a goal-line dropout but made an er­ror and, on their next set, sent the ball out for a 20-me­tre restart that Aedan Cole­man re­turned 80 me­tres for a spec­tac­u­lar in­di­vid­ual try.

With the fi­nal move of the game Hec­tor Silva ran the restart back strongly, Joe Uren made a half break, handed on to Joe Collins who fed Ad­dis. The prop off­loaded back to the sec­ond row, who scored his first try of the sea­son.

Lewis missed the goal but the All Golds had the win they wanted to end the league cam­paign with more wins than losses and a fort­night to pre­pare for the play-offs.
