Havant AXV 46 – 10 Andover II

Back to league action this week. A lot of injuries and unavailability struck this week meaning a very changeable teamsheet, but we were pleased to get back Josh dlp and Tyler Anchor.

Hav started well with early pressure from the pack giving newcomer prop Russ a try in the corner. Andover were awarded a penalty (a common penalty from the ref through the match for not releasing, although clearly this was the player not releasing but he just didn’t seem to understand!) But the army major did police the game strictly!

Andover scored to go ahead from a missed tackle and the game was very much in the balance. Havant then showed real spirt and played well from 1-15 to end any more scoring from Andover and steadily scored a further 38 points. Scores from Marley Chandler (2) Pete Living (2) Nick Wren, Tyler Anchor, John Neil and Scott Bradshaw.

Coach Lewis Osborne was really pleased with the performance and thinks the Axv are playing as a team now which considering the way we’ve come together is very promising.

Man of the match.

Good effort all round again. Bruce and josh dlp are making a very solid pairing in the engine room, scott taking on good ball aswell as nick wren storming up the pitch but the 3 front runners were Tyler anchor, showing more of his clinical tackling taking the ball on agressively to make yards and present clean ball, jack Sykes at full back made several try saving tackles and excellent running but for his 2 tries, taking his tally to 10 so far, for breaking down the defence just when we needed to take the scoreboard moving in our direction and his excellent marshalling this weeks man of the match
