Men 1XV 19 v 12 Harrow RFC - Away League on 7 Dec 2019

Published on Monday, 9 December 2019


With both sides needing the points, this turned out to be a very scrappy game seesawing from end to end with neither side being able to build any continuity.

With a quarter of the match gone a quickly taken penalty resulted in Sean McGinnity crashing over for a try which Ben Wiggins converted.

A few minutes later a penalty for holding on against Hitchin saw the ball bounce off one upright and then the other to land harmlessly infield.

Pressure on the Hitchin line finally told when Harrow spread the ball wide for their winger to take advantage of poor marking, and score in the corner.

Just before half time a neat kick through by Ben Wiggins was collected by Will Rooney to an unconverted try.

Half time score Harrow 5 Hitchin 12

Harrow drew level with a converted try from their winger after ten minutes of the restart.

Having survived a lot of pressure James Bolter, Will Evans and Will Rooney combined to lift the siege resulting in Will Rooney getting his second try, converted by Ben Wiggins.

Hitchin finished the match strongly but were unable to add to their score to obtain a bonus point. Whilst the pack held their own in the set pieces for most of the game, too often opportunities were lost by poor handing in the backs
