I suppose that's why we follow Rugby League and Hornets. Who'd have thought It at 3.00 o'clock. I can only assume Fev thought it would be easy. I don't blame them going off our current form, I would have taken a bonus point at any time.
We got off like a house on fire, racking up a 18-0 lead in less minutes than that courtesy of an error free game but obviously you don't get to be second in the league for nothing. Fev raced back at us and in as many minutes were level having decided to attack us down our weaker side. After that the next ten minutes were an arm wrestle and at half time there was nothing between the teams.
We came out after half time in the same vein as the start of the first half and before we knew it we had scored two more tries and had got our noses in front again. It couldn't last in spite of some gritty play and slowly the tide was turned and we again fell behind with about five minutes to go. I was still feeling a bonus point was a good result when we had one final throw of the dice and came up with the match winning try. The last five minutes seemed like an eternity but eventually the hooter went and we could celebrate a rare three points.
A really well earned three points, bags of guts and commitment from all the boys with Ryan Millard outstanding at half back with a match winning performance. We just toughed it out at the end, Fev ended up playing the usual catch up rugby that rarely brings results.
It was a bit disappointing in the bar after the game with hardly any Fev fans to be seen although the Fev Chairman was extremely gracious in defeat.
Same again next week boys. " Onward Hornets, Onwards ".
