BEN HEN­DER­SON scored two tries as Rams con­tin­ued their win­ning start to the sea­son with a con­vinc­ing win at Hazel­wood.

Hav­ing kicked off the cam­paign with a bonus-point vic­tory over Can­ter­bury, Rams wasted lit­tle time in get­ting in front again on match­day two.

Hen­der­son was the first to cross fol­low­ing a driv­ing line-out and the lead was dou­bled be­fore the 10-minute mark when Jak Ros­siter stormed the length of the pitch to score.

Wild Geese re­sponded with a try of their own, but Seb Reynolds’ men were soon back on the front foot as they raced 24-7 ahead by the break thanks to tries from Ross Crame and Ja­mar Richard­son.

Af­ter a quiet start to the sec­ond half, Rams crossed the white­wash again on 54 min­utes when Hen­der­son fin­ished off a pa­tient move.

Ir­ish re­acted well, forc­ing the vis­i­tors back in­side their own

22, but a counter-at­tack score from An­drew Den­ham killed any hope of an un­likely come­back be­fore re­place­ment Joe Duf­fe­len com­pleted the 41-10 win in the fi­nal minute.

“In patches we played some qual­ity rugby,” said head coach Reynolds.

“But it wasn’t quite the com­plete per­for­mance I would’ve liked.”
