Hornets of to a flying start

Tryfest for young guns

With Steve Clarke joining Tom Greevy in coaching the Hornets this season they made the trip to Leicestershire to take on Syston on a very warm summer afternoon. A very young side, average age under 20, looked to use the warm weather and firm ground to their advantage by playing some open, fast paced rugby, which they endevoured to do by opening the scoring early on with JT breaking the line and offloading to put Jamie Domachi in to score. This was followed up by another line break which saw Matti Collier go over in the corner which was also to last part he played in the game due to a calf strain. At this point special mention goes to Jacob Lisle (and his dad) who turned up just after kick off after he just got back from holiday a couple of hours before. Hornets continued to pressure the Syston line which saw Reece Donaldson slice through the defense to score under the posts. Half time score 17-5.

Second half saw the Hornets tidy up their discipline and relax into the game and play a more structured approach which reaped the benefits of scoring a number tries in quick succession and the fitness levels shine through. A double from JT was followed up by a double from Chip which was then rounded of by a storming run from Joe Foreman to take the score to 50-23. A final thank you to George Radburn's dad for running the line. Next week the Hornets travel to Towcester RFC in a league fixture.
