Your News National League 2 South review

There were home wins for Henley, Canterbury and Shelford on a weekend when just three games were played in SSE National League Two South after Bournemouth’s match at home to Dings Crusaders was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Henley maintained the pressure on leaders Worthing with a convincing 10-try, 68-15 victory over Taunton at Dry Leas. Fly-half Will Robinson was the star of the show for the Hawks, who now trail Worthing by seven points but with a game in game. Robinson converted nine tries including one of his own for a personal tally of 23 points.

Back-to-back defeats looked to have derailed Redruth’s title challenge. After surrendering their unbeaten home record to Hartpury College the week before, the Reds slipped to a 20-12 defeat to Canterbury. Tries from Kwaku Asiedu and James Green to one from Tom Duncan handed Canterbury a 12-5 interval advantage. Skipper and No.8 Will Baars added to Canterbury’s lead with their third try shortly after the re-start, but the Reds responded through a Frazer Kellythorn try to bring the scores back to 17-12. Soon after, Canterbury flanker Jesse Liston and Redruth scrum-half Greg Good fellow were shown red cards for their part in an altercation, before Scott Browne sealed victory for the Kent outfit with a penalty on the hour mark.

Fifth-placed Shelford opened up a 10-point gap between themselves and Launceston in the league table following a victory by the narrowest of margins against the Cornish All Blacks. The visitors outscored Shelford three tries to two, including a brace from Lewis Paterson, but they were made to pay for missed kicks at goal. Ed Mills and Aki Lea scored Shelford’s tries with Rory Hutchinson adding two penalties in a 16-15 win.
