Your News South Woodham Ferrers 24 - Canvey 3

SWF had the perfect start when straight from the

kick off the ball was returned with pace and guile

and moved through numerous sets of hands to

Joe Dukelow coming in the line from full back. Drawing

the last defender, he released winger Duggan to score

under the posts. Brown converted 7-0.

Canvey responded well and showed why they are the

inform team with a seven game unbeaten run. Canvey's

forwards started to keep the ball and enjoyed a good

spell of possession resulting in a number of penalties.

Fortunately for the home team only one was converted

out of the four. From a pressurised Canvey scrum on their

own 22 fly half Adam Brown was able to charge down his

opposite numbers kick. Quickly gathering the ball he

scored under the posts. Brown converted half time 14-3.

The second half started similar to the first with Canvey

having possession but unable to make any head way against

an impregnable defence. Canvey started to run out of ideas

and with Woodham looking to turn over ball and counter attack

at every opportunity it was only a matter of time before Woodham's

youthful back line would get its chance. This duly came when

from a crunching tackle in midfield the ball was spilt. Leon Gateson

reacted first and sprinted away down the blind side to score.

Brown's conversion was wide 19-3.

Canvey's frustration started to show and had two players yellow

carded ending any hope of any come back. Woodham's final try

probably exemplified how defence can be a form of attack.

Warren Duggan's tackle on his winger and then presence of mind

to hack through and chase his own kick allowed him to score a

great individual try. Brown kick was just short.

Final score 24 -3.

This game was won with a fantastic collective, defensive effort

and puts SWF back in with a chance of promotion.
