DOUBLE CHAMPIONS

By

Report by Graham Pratt

Rochford put the icing on the season’s cake by becoming Essex Senior Cup Champions at Thurrock where they showed why they are such a formidable outfit.

The boys in black, back to almost full strength, totally overwhelmed a below strength Brentwood outfit with power, pace, skill and organisation. They scored 11 tries to 1 in this exhibition of good quality rugby to delight their supporters and the neutral spectators.

Rochford started the points scoring almost immediately when Harry Hudson grounded the ball to claim the try after some strong forward play. Cameron Greenhall converted, and it was all Rochford as they drove, kicked and ran from all the possession they won and created space for themselves.

Centre Sonny Gay, who had an excellent game, collected the ball and ran through the Brentwood defence to ground under the posts and Greenhall added the extra. Shortly after Sam Fombo, making a welcome return after injury, showed his power as he went through for the next try and Greenhall duly converted.

Fombo has been sadly missed as he is such a big influence on the pitch with his lineout and loose work and invariably with a big smile on his face.

Next up was Gay with another well taken try and Cameron Greenhall put the conversion over.

Twenty-eight points up in as many minutes and two more tries by Hudson and Chris Dudman brought the score line at half time to 38 – 0.

Rochford had controlled the set scrums and lineouts and were powerful in the loose and it must have been sole destroying for the hard working but outclassed Brentwood team, especially in such heat which sapped the energy out of all the players but more so out of the losing team.

The match continued in the same way for most of the second half although Brentwood did dig in deeper and contested more .It did not stop the Rochford flow however as hooker Adam Ferrer open the second session’s scoring with a try and then winger Dudman went over for his second try which Greenhall converted.

Another player who had an excellent game was second row Dan Sowter who showed some really good touches with the ball and powered through a number of times. He was rewarded with a first class try and Cameron added the extra.

It was only fitting that the powerhouse second row Jody Allen scored a try before his return to New Zealand and he did so in style using his bulk and strength to drive over.

The final piece of Rochford scoring was left to skilful Sonny Gay who sped through for his hat trick and Greenhall converted both tries.

A late rally by gutsy Brentwood who found a little something from their reserves saw them run in for a well taken try which was duly converted to bring proceedings to an end and the Magnolia Road boys had shown that they are well and truly ready to take on the new challenge of National Three rugby next season.

Well done to all of you lads who have worked so hard for this and to all the coaching staff for preparing them for it over all those hard sessions on Tuesday and Thursday nights in all weather.
