1st XV 7 v 48 Stevenage Town RFC - Away League on 16 Dec 2017

Published on Tuesday, 19 December 2017

Despite powerful runs up the pitch by James Bolter and Sean McGinnity, they lacked support and 21 minutes in Stevenage were awarded a penalty which they kicked to touch, &  from the resulting lineout ran the ball wide and then cut back to score an unconverted try.  This simple game plan was repeated twice more to make the halftime score 17 - 0 to the home side.



2 minutes into the second half Stevenage score again but Hitchin struck back 3 minutes later with a well taken try by Ben Wiggins, converted by himself.


Scores by the Stevenage wing and two forward scores, both from Hitchin line outs ,saw the score stretch to 41  - 7 and then a promising Hitchin attack broke down when the ball was intercepted and the Stevenage player ran in from 75m  to score under the posts.


Hitchin never gave up, & tackled well, but in the end Stevenage were too  powerful for them
