|Match Report - Sat 4th Oct 2008 v Huntingdon
Wellingborough 25 - 12 Huntingdon
Wellingborough continued their good start in the league with a home win against Huntingdon.
Up against a very strong Wellingborough pack, Huntingdon were always on the back foot and lost a significant amount of ball to the Wellingborough forwards. The first try came from a long kick by Wellingborough which was chased down and led to Dan Fitzhugh scoring under the posts. Wellingborough then continued to be strong and had to hold out Huntingdon with some good defence for 10 minutes of pressure.
The second half started well with lots of attacking flair by the Wellingborough backline. The next score came from poor Huntingdon defence that led to a 5 metre scrum. A good break by Alex Hunt from the base of the scrum saw Jack Whittet score.
Huntingdon’s final score came from some confusing refereeing decisions which saw the Huntingdon forwards convert into a try. This was then ‘amazingly’ converted by Huntingdon.
Scorers: Dan FitzHugh (x3), Dom Driscoll & Jack Whittet
Man of the match: Connor Hartwell
