Cuffley 1st 50 0 Old Tottonians
Cuffley started 2014 with a big win over Tott's played at their ground due to poor ground conditions at Rosedale. Totts as we expected where strong up front but struggled in the backs, this limited their style of play which to be fair was always their strength.
As is the norm in this sort of game although, our game plan was to play a wide game it took us 25 minutes to get clean ball away from Tott's, having kept them pinned in their 22 Tott's finally cracked giving away a penalty under the post Crabby started what was to be a quality kicking display by taking an easy 3 points.
Having got the taste for scoring we got into our game with 2 tries before half time. Nick Dean crashed over from short range against his old club, Daisy out sprinted the winger to scoop up and score both tries converted by Crabby. Half time 17 pts to nil.
The half time chat was all about playing our sort of rugby with ball in hand but all credit to Tott's they worked hard to spoil our plans, but our youth and fitness started to show and the scores came, Matt Deamer raced through on a kick to pick up and score, Will Payne added another.
Mick then crashed over to put the game well beyond Tott's all converted by Crabby. We weren't finished with Willy on the end of a fine passage of play and Tom running in from a fast thinking Willy taking a quick lineout. Crabby added another conversation for 7 from 8 kicks in the match. 50 pts to nil it may sound easy but you still have to play good rugby and not get try line fever, you can only play what's in front of you and we know there will be harder games to come but this was the best way to start the New Year.
