Fisher stay on the path

PURLEY John Fisher went quietly about their business during the Autumn International period and returned two wins in league action.

Firstly they dispatched of Old Blues 8-0, with the low score being a reflection of the appalling weather conditions the match was played in.

The game was dominated by the PJF pack, who bettered not only their opponents but also the heavy pitch, allowing captain Dan Leidecker to score the only try and fly-half Johan Malcolm to add a three-point penalty.

PJF then travelled to the Isle of Wight as they took on Sandown & Shanklin.

In a competitive match, PJF shaded their hosts 16-13 with all the points coming from Malcolm.

The fly-half notched a try, a conversion and three penalties to keep PJF's noses in front.

The visitors took the initiative and pressurised the home side in their own half in the first period, and the pack got the upper hand in the set plays, allowing Malcolm to release backs Leidecker and Jarrad Klaver on several occasions.

PJF went off the boil in the second half and managed to defend the win with some aggressive tackling and covering of their line.

The two victories move PJF up into fifth position in the league, a place they will keenly defend tomorrow when they host local rivals Old Mid-Whitgiftians.
