1st XV 18 v 40 St Albans RFC - Away League on 28 Oct 2017

Published on Monday, 30 October 2017


Hitchin started the match with a lot of pressure and possession in the St Albans 22 but couldn't convert it into points, two penalty attempts going wide.


In St Albans' first foray into the Hitchin half a deft kick through was collected by their winger who ran  down the line to score in the corner for a converted try.


The visitors’  heads dropped even further when St Albans broke through the middle of a ruck right on the Hitchn line, to score their second converted try.


Hitchin fought back in to the St Albans 22 to be rewarded with a successful penalty kick by Ben Wiggins


Back came St Albans with a try by their winger from a 5 m scrum on the right hand side of the pitch, which was again converted.


A pass from  a series of rucks deep in the St Albans 22 found  Tom Tidey who crashed over for a try which went unconverted.


Just before half time the St Albans winger picked up the ball on the Hitchin 22 and ran in to score in the corner for another converted try, the home side leading  28 – 8


A rolling maul from a penalty lineout  resulted in a second try for Hitchin’s Tidey ,unconverted


St Albans produced  a carbon copy try with a catch and drive from a lineout following a penalty, this time the conversion  missed.


Another penalty gave Hitchin a line out 15 m from the opposition line and Rhys Gregory got on the end of a pass to run in for an unconverted try 


The last try for St Albans came from a lucky bounce off a St Albans player's knee which ricocheted off a Hitchin player straight into the arms of the attacker who fell over the line under the posts for the easiest try he will ever score, leaving the final score at 40 -18
