Another win in the Bag
By Steve Newman
Seaside trip completed, wind, rain & a little Christmas cheer!
Out of the blocks firing on all cylinders, bury force the error through the forwards, whipped the ball through the hands to Connor Roberts who dabbed it down in the corner after 2 mins, Mike Jenkins conv from out wide, 7-0. Game on, or so we thought! Harwich however had other ideas, from the re-start they gained possession and duly applied pressure through their hardy forwards pushed Bury back to their line and from a 5m scrum whipped it out to the winger to level the scores,7 mins, 7-7. Definitely game on now! As per usual, Bury gathered their thoughts, reset and went straight back at Harwich. They forced a turnover and within no time at all had sent Connor Roberts over for another score, 12 mins, conv missed, 12-7. This re-start was managed a little better and Bury got straight back into Harwich's half, again quick ball through the hands out to the left wing gave Henry Lord the score after 15 mins, conv MJ, 19-7. Bury now enjoying the ascendancy camped in the Harwich half, and when Harvey Newman straightened the line & brushed aside the fly half, he only had to bosh fullback out the way to score close to the posts on 18 mins, conv missed, 24-7. In full swing now Toby Mills like a human dynamo went over on 25 mins, conv MJ, 31-7
