FARNHAM VS PULBOROUGH
By Toby Glover
CLASH OF COLOURS
Farnham A welcomed a number of B team and new faces into the squad to play Pulborough at home for the first time.
This non cup game gave us the opportunity to build strength in depth by offering a number of last week's B team players A team opportunities. We then played a lot of lads in different positions and took the chance to play boys in completely different combinations to see how they performered.
The early exchanges were very tight with Pulborough dominating possession. After 10 mins the sleeping Farnham giant awoke and started to get a grip of the game
Excellent back row play by Joel Baine and Aidan Hofma (from 8) kept the opponents on the back foot. Strong runs from props Neil Kanyangarara, Harry Lewis - Gorton and second row William Wickens got Farnham over the gain line on numerous times.
The backs had a field day with front foot ball and Louie Kirkham having a run in the centresfor the first time this year scored three tries as well as Peter Aiano and Max Williams helping themselves.
MoM was second row - back row Laurence Lee whose support play,ball carrying and a great turn of speed showing him to be back to his very best.
Final score FARNHAM 55- PULBOROUGH 5.
