Well done Hornets

Splendid 54-12 result after recent performances.  Look forward to hearing what ingredients, aside from a good defence in 2nd half especially, were present today that have not been of late. Oldham clattered NWC too - makes for interesting end to season.

An excellent performance today sadly punctuated by a complete switch off after 20 minutes. We allowed them into a game they had barely troubled until then and they looked a decent team. Thankfully we steadied the ship and the second half was one-way traffic. The pack put in good stints and the backs always looked keen to move the ball around and back up the player in possession.

The pitch was beautiful, a deep green sward with even bounce and even though it has had a fair amount of water o it over the last few days there was very little cutting up during the game.

No Bonus Point for Oxford was imperative and the Scorpions are next up!

Well done lads!!!

Pugwash.

A good performance all round today. Our kicking game continually turned them round and allowed us to play deep in their half. The forwards performed well and fronted up against aggressive opponents.

The only ngative was allowing them to get back into the game just before half time.

Onwards and upwards

Same old same in first half, plenty of good effort and craft going forward but the lads switched off just when Oxford injected some real go forward into there game which made things a bit too close for comfort at HT

2nd half was about as good as I've seen us play all season. Slick with ball in hand mixed in with a great kicking game, but most pleasing was the rock solid defence that snuffed out anything Oxford tried.

Lots of positives to build on quite a few performed really well, Yates and Crook linked well, Hully and Danny Davies looked dangerous but our pack set the platform with Cooky, Thompson, Greenwood working hard and standing up too a lively Oxford pack.

1 cup final over, another 4 to go, still no room for error, but well done!
