PURLEY John Fisher thumped Old Blues with four tries to grab an important five-point win last Saturday.

The result keeps them in third position, but they have a game in hand, while the top two are yet to play each other.

PJF opened the scoring early on, as the pacy Chase Thompson caught the ball and returned it unchallenged for five points.

PJF's pack dominated the tight phases providing a solid base from which to take territorial advantage.

In doing this they set up several opportunities to score and reduced the visitors to attack from a long way out.

Steve Brown and Tom Leather secured good lineout possession and the tight five pressured at every opportunity in the scrums.

A solid series of well-controlled rolling mauls had the PJF pack trundling forward, when Liam Miles sprung and crossed the whitewash.

Miles Murphy slotted the conversion and PJF were 12-0 up at the break.

Thompson followed a chip through from Campbell and ran in again unchallenged for his second try after the restart.

After a good passage of play that had PJF attack the try line, the ball was taken on by man of the match and second row Ben Grundman.

With a bulldozing run, he powered over to score the all important fourth try.
