LSH 2nd XV 81pts – 0pts Congleton 1st XV – 3rd February 2018
LSH got straight back onto the gas pedal and breezed past a weak opposition to stay 3rd in the table. Credit to Congleton who kept at it despite the heavy incoming fire…
John Arnold at blind-
By half time LSH had racked up a 40 – 0 score-
The temptation to play champagne rugby was tempered by Coach Sean Casey and the team were left in no uncertain terms that they were to play rugby and keep to the plan.
LSH took a couple of players off to even the game and Congleton never gave up but were no real threat.
From deep in his half right wing Jamal Zaki caught a kick and ran it back breaking through to get to the opposition 22 and then LSH moved the ball through the hands of the back line with real pace and accuracy to allow McBride at outside centre to go over for a real quality try just left of the sticks. This was what the coaches wanted to see. Morris converted 47-
Ever reliable fullback Gibson then scored for his brace followed by Sean Richardson converted by McBride score-
