Kingston 2ndXV 29, Mitcham 2ndXV 12 (F)
Kingston produced 20 minutes of controlled rugby at the start of this game and looked like they would walk away with the game. Within that time, No.8 Rob Simmonds grabbed the first two tries with powerful carries from the back of the scrum, followed by a third try by second row Ray Barclay, converted by fly half Ben Hamer. The period was capped with another unconverted try, this time a popular maiden try, by prop Marcus Dunne.

At 22 -0 ,and seemingly in complete control, Kingston then lost their composure and only regained it ten minutes from time. The visitors scored tries ten minutes either side of half time, one converted, and could have put real pressure on the home side with one more score.

Fortunately, in the last ten minutes, Kingston managed to exert some territorial pressure and another strong run by Rob Simmonds led him to touch down unchallenged for his hat trick . This, and the conversion that followed, settled the game.

Man of the match :         Rob Simmonds

Kingston 2ndXV 15, RaynesPark 2ndXV 20 (M)

Kingston 2nd XV’s first game of the season was very late and so the eventual result should not be too disappointing.

The home team got off to a flying start with a try within 20 seconds. The visitors failed to hold on to the kick off, and as the ball bounce down the slope into the bottom left hand corner, winger Joe Wright was rewarded for his follow up by dotting the ball down. The try was converted by fly half Matt parry. Joe scored a more conventional winger’s try ten minutes later, rounding his man easily. Although unconverted, Kingston had a relatively comfortable 12-0 lead. From this point on, Raynes Park worked their way back up the slope and were effectively the dominant side for the rest of the game. They were aided by a Kingston defence which, whilst not flimsy, failed to nail sufficient conclusive tackles to stop the opposition momentum.

Raynes Park hit back with two ties before half time, with a penalty from Matt Parry meaning Kingston entered the interval holding a 15 -10 lead. However, Kingston’s  performance became  increasingly disjointed and they failed to score in the second half. Two unconverted tries by the visitors were sufficient to give them victory.
