DATE: : 19 AUG 2016
SCORE: : VILLAGES 22 – VIOLETS 0
The day started off with a Jersey hand over. Blake handed to the backline and Saaid to the forwards. The team was highly motivated for the game. It could be seen in the first 5 minutes of the game. The visitors also started with high tempo putting the home side under pressure, but the defence of the home side stood firm. It was the home side that was awarded the first penalty of the game right in front of the upright, but captain Isa Meyer decided on a scrum. The ball was moved to the right of the scrum and Yusri Williams joined the line from fullback and was on his way when the visitors pulled off a great cross cover tackle. Ten minutes later Yusri once again joined the line and received the ball from Adrian Padua. This time he was through for the first points of the game, 05-0. The home side second try came from a brilliant chip from Joe Williams with Yusri Williams and Toughied Gilfellow both chasing after the ball, but it was Toughied to touch down in the left hand corner, 10-0
The visitors threw everything they had at the home side, but they could not break the defence or the spirit of the home side. It was the home side who scored two further tries in the second half. The veteran hooker, Jamie Kaiser running a fantastic line that a centre would run. He received the pass from Adrian Padua and was untouched to score under the polls. The last try was score by Adrian Padua.
