LOCAL rivals Purley John Fisher and Old Mid-Whitgiftians took to the field of play at the Pightle last Saturday, which saw the former come out on top with a 42-10 victory.

In scoring six tries, PJF made this another five-point win that sees them secure fourth place in the league going into the Christmas recess.

Despite going 3-0 down to an early penalty from the visitors, it was PJF all the way in the first half as they stepped up a couple of gears and produced a fairly comprehensive performance.

Fly-half Johan Malcolm slotted a penalty and soon after, hooker Ben Inglis latched on to captain Dan Leidecker's break to open PJF's try tally.

From the well-taken and set-up re-start, man of the match Phil Jones broke free round the base of a maul, and over 50 yards, out-ran the covering defending back three to score a sublime try under the posts.

With Malcolm converting both tries PJF, were in command at 17-3, and Leidecker rounded off an impressive move soon after as he scythed through the disarrayed defence to cross the whitewash.

PJF's bonus point came as a driven scrum, which was well-controlled at the base by Liam Miles, who crossed the visitor's line where the ball was grounded by scrum-half Ollie Davies.

The visitors then managed to shake the journey from their legs and through a series of re-cycled phases, their impressive number eight thundered through the PJF defence to score their only try of the game, which was then converted.

In response, PJF made good ground and were rewarded when Malcolm kicked another penalty to take the half-time score to 30-10.

PJF bookended the second half as Miles supported an attack and touched down in the opening five minutes before Malcolm converted.

The supporters had then to wait until the last minute before any other score when winger Tom Casey rounded off the day as he followed up on a chip-through, collected the ball and scored PJF's sixth try.
