Too strong for South Notts & great support on the touchline

A few changes from last week and thanks to South Notts Barbarians for bringing a team to Brendon Grove for a 2nd friendly of the season

A couple of early tries; the first from Ben Sansom as he makes a decisive step on halfway and the speed to score. The 2nd following pressure allowing Dylan Roberts to pick up a loose ball on the 22 and going down the line. Anthony Thomas adds the conversions 14 – 0

Lee Fretwell added a 3rd from 5m out after forward continuity 19 – 0

George Ward joins the game and with his 1st touch makes a clean break on the 10m. Anthony Thomas converts 26 – 0

Harry Lister comes on for his 1st game of the season and quickly gets into it getting possession in midfield and throwing a deft dummy and scoring 31 – 0

South Notts appear to get over for a score but pulled back for a forward pass.

Bingham forced a turnover and Pete Coppack collected the ball on halfway and showed good speed to go the length. Anthony Thomas added the 2 pts 38 – 0

Some strong carries from Richard Walters gave Bingham some go-forward momentum as we struggled to maintain continuity.

Andy Price showed good strength following a midfield scrum to make an initial break offloading to Lee Fretwell who brought James Seagrave in from full-back who made good ground before linking back for forward support from Chris Heathcote to score. 43 – 0

The game closes after Anthony Thomas makes a break collecting a loose ball on the 22m to score and convert 50 - 0

Big thanks to South Notts and Bingham players who played for South Notts to make the game.
