OCT

It took a while for Millwall to break the deadlock, but they dominated the set piece, winning a number of opposition scrums and lineouts and were rewarded mid-way into the first half with centre, Tom Ronayne, crossing from close range. Prop, Shaun Cook, also crossed after an impressive maul from the Millwall pack.

Five minutes into the second half and Millwall scored a third try with Iwan Thomas finishing off a fine passing move, putting the game beyond Bancroft at 21-0.

Millwall made full use of their bench and substitutes with Robert Quinn and Michael Eason in particular impressing.

With ten minutes to go Millwall closed off the game and scored two further tries ensuring a bonus point win. Andy Long got on the end of a pass from Mike Foulds to go over in the corner, while Tom Ronayne also scored his second try of the day to make a comprehensive win against Bancroft

Millwall Coach, Dave Roberts, commented I was very happy with the teams performance and think it will give us a lot of confidence going into next weeks away clash against Clapton.

Millwall Tries: Tom Ronayne x 2, Iwan Thomas, Andy Long, Shaun Cook.

Conversions: Andy Long x 3.
