Worthing visited Chichester for the U18s Sussex league clash in good spirits after a courageous loss last week at Christ Hospital. Play started with Worthing showing first and putting the home side under pressure, but failing to score as the final pass was dropped on more than one occasion.
The Greens did eventually score 5 tries to 2, with final score 25-12 win.
Numerous players showered themselves with praise after excellent performances. Simmons and Banister were getting the ball moving and allowed Garett and Bosley to dominate the gain line and use pace wingers Lean and Day to get three tries between them. When Hewett came on later he showed glimpses of speed and skill on the ball as well, challenging the defensive line.
This obviously not possible if the forwards had not done their part first and it was lead up by the front row of Magee, Tozer and Moger and in the second half Perry added his efforts to the cause up front.
The engine room was industrious with Erskine and Millera giving it everything the former scoring one of the five Green tries. Akram, Wheat, Close and latterly Latos were excellent in the back row stopping the bigger more experienced side. Wheat grew to understand the referee’s interpretations better than most allowing turnover opportunities.
Tries: Lean 2, Day, Simmons, Erskine
