Druids Dominant in home win against Ruislip

By

Stronger all around

After the disappointment of a heavy loss last week the Druids saw several players returning to the field.

A tight first 20 mins saw both sides looking to probe for weaknesses. The Welsh overall looking stronger in both attack and defence, benefited from a couple of small errors from kickable positions, allowing Rhys Tudur Davies to grab a couple of straight forward penalty kicks.

As the Welsh pack took control of the set piece, it was Alex Laybourne at 6 who found his way over the line for the first try of the afternoon. Rhys Tudur Davies failing to convert, making the score 11 : 0 after 25 mins. The score, however, bled confidence through the Welsh team, Fred White with a blustering run, beating several defenders for pace to touch down under the post for an easy conversation from Rhys Tudur Davies.

As the first half came to an end, a try form Tom Richards saw another conversion from Rhys Tudur Davies to end the period with the Welsh 25 : 0 Ruislip.

A bright start to the second period saw centre Sam Higgins scoring out wide, this time Rhys Tudur Davies scuffing the conversation and putting the ball wide of the post. A few minutes later Courtney Maggs Jones was over for his a try in his first game after an extended layoff, this time safely converted by Rhys Tudur Davies, making his tally for the afternoon 5 from 7 and 16 points.

Welsh now used its bench, bringing on both power and quality, but It was the Ruislip side who would finish stronger. The young side of men in purple and white had never looked to give up, their efforts throughout the game would see results in the final 20mins as they pressed the Welsh set piece. At 70 mins their effort and determination delivered results with Ruislip scoring an unconverted try.

A fine afternoon of Middlesex Merit Table rugby gave both players and supporters an afternoon of enjoyable rugby.
