Thurrock Rocked by Brighton
By Ben Stanley
Tee's go down late against 2nd place
Rugby sometimes can be a hard game to get your just rewards as Brighton landed 2 late converted tries to secure victory when a moment of unsporting like behaviour went un-punished.
The score was very close with Brighton leading by 20-14 when Dylan Fearon made a fantastic break. With support on the inside a Brighton player was shouting for the ball which went to him, although the referee gave a penalty it deserved a yellow card, and Thurrock’s attack came to no avail. The referee was at the at the center of more controversy when he missed a forward pass and Dan Carey being man-handled off the ball. Both of these incidents lead to tries.
Earlier Thurrock had scored tries through Tom Pool, following slick hands from Dan Stone & Nathan Farrell and a second from Jake Bedding after the forwards had won a scrum against the head. Both converted by Sam Stanley, with the first being a lovely touchline conversion. Brighton went in at the break 15-14 up following a late penalty
It was another nearly performance and soon someone will suffer the backlash when this team gets it right
It is a week off for the players this week giving them the opportunity to watch England take on the All Blacks. Thurrock return to league action on the 17th November when they visit London Cornish
