Havant AXV 49 – 14 Basingstoke III

Friendly fixture against our 1st team league rival’s 3rd outfit. A big and powerful bunch turned up well prepared.

However, Havant Axv this season are a very solid and tight squad and are the strongest 3′s outfit in hampshire by some margin. We took the game to the stoke and pulled of a very convincing win. Stoke scored from a push over scrum and a soft try which were disappointments but the phase play, forwards support and backs running lines are looking polished. Training is showing the extra finesse. Ali Hire and Pete Living combined excellently.

Man of the Match:

Jez Smith was his usual abrasive self from the no.8 berth.Ali Hire was cutting fantastic lines but for an all round performance, going over and above good srummaging and lineout work to hit rucks, take the ball on with strength and denfend strongly, prop Ted Moss was this weeks man of the match

Well done Superted!
