Streatham-Croydon in comfortable win over Worth Old Boys

STREATHAM-CROYDON ran out comfortable winners against Surrey Two's bottom side Worth Old Boys last Saturday.

Without any meaningful preparation due to the inclement weather, both teams punctuated the opening exchanges with mistakes and imprecision.

First blood was drawn by the away side with a well-struck penalty dissecting the posts. This and the game's first try following a highly effective rolling maul were the only true incursions made by Worth in the first half.

Streatham's second-half performance clinched victory and earned a vital bonus point.

From the opening tussles, it was clear that Streatham-Croydon had a renewed purpose, running with greater depth and support into the contact area. Well recycled ball and quick hands resulted in the opening score by Conor Kelly, whose tackling and running were significant bright points during the first period.

This was followed by the try of the game as winger Vinny Auguiste crashed over in the right corner after numerous carries from the Streatham pack. Promptly recycled possession led to an overlap and the tide had turned.

At the end, Maika Baleilovu touched down by the post after a race following a host of calamitous events in the Old Boys' half.

And he grabbed Streatham's final try, pouncing after the ball had shot out of the scrum to ensure the bonus point.
