Paviors V Newark Colts
Newark put in solid performance at Pavs
On a chilly November night under lights, the visitors treated their travelling supporters to an exciting display of rugby against a big, physical Paviors side.
The first half saw Newark at their best with steadfastness at the set piece, aggressive defence and some excellent handling in attack putting Ellison and Seabrook over for two tries apiece and Clayton over for one.
Paviors to their credit were fiercely competitive throughout, but went into the break 10-33 down and scratching their heads for an answer to Newark's control of the game.
Whatever the home coaches said at half time clearly worked, as Paviors came out with an intelligent attacking game in the second 40, were particularly effective in their counter-rucking and picked some excellent running lines to score 3 unanswered tries in the face of an uncharacteristically lackadaisical newark defensive effort.
Nonetheless, it was Newark who had the last word with an excellent move from a scrum on the 5m line which saw Harding bully his way over between the posts.
Good overall team performance by the visitors against a very competitive Pavs side who came within a score of taking the victory in the second half. Set pieces absolutely rock-solid throughout, and the game was well controlled by Half backs Toby Taylor and Sam Booth. Final score 27-38 to Newark.

Will Ellison 2
