Match Report

Cantabrigian 5 Norwich 21


Cantabrigian 5 Norwich 21

Cantabs had not won a game in the league this season and Norwich had lost their last 3 games albeit narrowly in the case of the Southwold and Ipswich games. It rained throughout the game on Saturday making handling a hazardous business. Norwich were determined after their performance against Stowmarket to look after possession which they did admirably and was the reason really why they won.

The first 20 minutes were pretty even but then Norwich broke the deadlock with a period of sustained pressure resulting in a 5 metre scrum from which no 8 Ryan Bigland scored and fly-half Theo Elliott added the conversion. 10 minutes later they did the same with Bigland scoring his second try and Elliott the conversion.

Norwich then made a hash of the restart. Norwich’s clearance kick was charged down and Cantabs scrum-half and Captain Richard Knights pounced on the loose ball to score halfway out. Fly-half James Hayward could not add the conversion.

This seemed to stir Norwich with half-time looming. They got themselves into the hosts’ 22 and scrum-half Robbie Bridgstock scored by the posts for Elliott to add the conversion to give Norwich the lead at the break 5-21 a scoreline that never changed.

In the second half with Norwich dominant in the set pieces they were able to retain possession and prevent Cantabs from adding to their tally. When Cantabs did threaten it was through the boot of Hayward who kicked a great deal in the second period but unfortunately for Cantabs their lineout was not functioning as they would have liked and Norwich got themselves out of any perceived danger.

Despite creating pressure situations in the fourth quarter Norwich were unable to secure the bonus point try which eluded them. However Norwich will be pleased with the way they dealt with the conditions and got the win they desperately needed.
