11 a side is the way forward
With Dorchester arriving with 7 players we were able to lend them 4 and ensure a competitive friendly.
The league points were ours as 12 a side is needed for a league match to count. However all the players were determined to get a competitive run out.
So Harry Hitchings, Dan Brown, Mark Hammond & Philip Collier donned to green and white hoops to even up the sides.
There then followed 60 minutes of full on action. We finished the first half 24 - 17 ahead, but the second 30 saw a reversal of fortunes with Dorchester running out 31 - 51 winners.
Man of the Match: Tom Smith
Tries: Craig Stocker 2, Mark Hammond 2 & 1 for Tom Smith. Cons: Craig2 & Tom Smith.
Tries: Zak Butler 3, Dan Brown 3, Harry Hitchings 2 & 1 for the Dorchester Prop & Capt. Cons: Zak, Dan & Harry.
