Brentwood 2s unbeaten run ends
By Colin O'Flaherty
Thurrock win top of the table clash...
The pack were dominant throughout despite being 1 or 2 men down for most of the game. Rob Murphy
picking up and linking with the backs was a delightful sight for Thurrock supporters.
A simplified lineout was effective and Thurrock won most of their own ball.
Good communication and thinking meant that box kicks were effective so Thurrock kept with it.
With defensive pressure on the Brentwood backs and Thurrock winning the majority of the scrums, it was becoming a great day for Thurrock 2s.
Despite a bizarre try scored by Brentwood when the referee made a total howler, Thurrock kept in the game despite being down to 13 for the majority of the game.
With Brentwood leading by 3 points with 5 minutes to go, Thurrock decided how they were going to win the game and then proceeded to do it. Fraser Kidd
finished off a backs move after another solid 6 man scrum to win the game, with Blaine scoring the conversion to make the final score 27-31 to the visitors. An incredible effort by all the lads, quality from the backs and some real dog from the forwards.
