GALLOPERS ON TOP AT ASHGROVE

11th July, 2017

With 5 Under 20 players in our team, Bond started well, dominating possession and territory for the first 10 minutes.  A 12-phase pick and drive inside Jeeps quarter and a 30m break through midfield by Mitch Third – with Hayden Sargent unmarked outside him – went begging.  Our only points came from a penalty, while Jeeps scored a soft try against the run of play by their captain, Dan Gorman.

Jeeps number 8, Jay Havelu was yellow carded but all we could manage were 2 more penalties to lead 9-5.  Right on halftime, they scored again, through winger Vasukicaucau, as we were caught napping by a clever long pass from Reds halfback, Nick Frisby.  Bond fans felt cheated at the break, as we were 15-9 down, after dominating most of the play. 

The second half was worse though, as Jeeps stepped up a gear and ran in 4 more tries.   It wasn’t until the 60th minute that Bond scored, Mitch Third catching Jeeps defence napping as he took a quick tap penalty and raced clear, lobbing a pass inside for Michael Marshall to score.

On the credit side, our youngsters went well, with Angus Blyth playing 60 minutes at lock against a powerful pack and red-haired Struan Robertson made a brief debut on the wing.   It was a disappointing loss, after our win over Brothers the previous week, but we can hope for improved performances in our next 2 games at home.
