Our Match Report
North Shore took to GE on a beautiful Saturday morning for an atypical 11:30 start. GE was a buzzing with anticipation for a long day of rugby.
NS started off strong pinning CR inside their 22 for the first 15 mins. Persistence paid off and Jebb was able to find a crack in the defense and break a few arm tackles on his way to the try zone from 15 out. Kick missed 5-0 NS.
NS peppered CR inside their own half for most of the 1st half. An untimely turnover late in the 1st allowed CR to make a quick play to the outside where the wing was able to allude a couple tackles on way to long score. CR converted the kick and took a 7-5 lead into halftime.
NS regrouped at half and returned to their game plan. Hard piggies and quick ball movement through the backline set the tone for much of the 2nd half. Play of the game happened when Tom Moore took a quick forward crash and was able to break through the opposition. With nothing but daylight and a fullback in front of him, Moore was able to cap off the run with brute force. How many meters the prop try really was, no one will ever know for sure.
NS chipped in a penalty conversion minutes later to increase the score to 13-7. Feeling the momentum swing NS stepped on the gas and continue the onslaught of crashes. Jebb was able to record his 2nd try of the game off a good feed from Sully to put NS up 20-7.
CR proving a worthy adversary chipped in a try of their own to keep the pressure on NS 20-14. NS again responded in the likes of Mr. Santos showing some fancy footwork allowing him to shake his defender inside the 10m line for NS final score of the game 25-14. CR with the final whistle looming, put across their final try of the day to make the final score 25-21 NS.
