Uphill struggle in the wind for Stroud

welcomed back Reagan Herbert after his stay in Australia

Stroud found the going tough on Saturday. Coney Hill were a well organised attacking unit who dominated possession and territory. They scored 10 tries and all but one was converted by their very accurate kicker.

A changed Stroud side welcomed back Reagan Herbert after his stay in Australia and he soon demonstrated that he has lost none of his explosive power making several long inroads into enemy territory. Nick Stringer gained useful lineout ball early on but Coney Hill gradually cut off his supply. Skipper Joe Doyle resorted to tap and run when given penalty kick options.

Tom Warner enjoyed the contact with his former club and provided an alternative battering ram to Herbert and Stratton. In the back row flankers Flanagan and Phillips relished their growing tackling duties but their bruises may tell them otherwise on Monday morning. Sub Charlie Foote made a good impact when he came on in the second half.

Behind the scrum Stroud found it difficult to develop the cohesion and strike power of which they are capable. Jake Marsh came on in the second half at number 10 and he added a defensive dimension to that channel- he also made several telling breaks. Stroud came close to scoring on several occasions with Sam Leworthy typically at the forefront of these attacks.

To their credit Stroud never gave up but few were unhappy when the final whistle blew.
