Sutton and Epsom C Festival - 20th October 2013

Despite the initial downpour of rain on Sunday, the weather held and some good rugby was played, however the final result with Cobham coming joint third out of four was a disappointing considering the fabulous effort of the boys.  The fifth team -  Rosslyn Park withdrew before the competition.

 The first match against Battersea Ironside saw the Cobham team underperform conceding six tries and five conversions resulting in a 0:40 defeat. Following a rousing team talk by Salv Nigrelli, the second match against Sutton and Epsom saw the team improve their tackling and rucking with  better defensive and offensive work resulting in a much improved team performance.  The final result of 0:0 draw didn’t reflect the much improved Cobham effort with the team having a try disallowed for handing out.

The third match against Chobham initially saw Chobham score early on with two tries and one successful conversion.  Undaunted the Cobham boys pulled together and in the final minutes of the game Henry Butlin scored a much needed try and  Alfie Bowman followed-up with a successful conversion.  The final result of a 12:7 defeat was disappointing considering the overall team improvement with the pack working much better at least the points on the board restored pride.

The play-off for the third place resulted in a second Chobham v Cobham match.  This saw some great play by Cobham with better ball movement and good breaking.  Despite this, Chobham again scored early on but Cobham held their composure and commitment which resulted in a great try by Will Hurford and conversion by Alfie Bowman resulting in a 7:7 draw.
