“18 point McEvoy kicks Teddington into touch”

3 weeks ago By Peter Upton

London Division III South West Warlingham 28pts –v- Teddington 15pts

Warlingham got their league campaign back on track with a convincing win over a lively Teddington side. Despite losing captain Jon Fox early in the game to a harsh red card the remaining fourteen players put in a workmanlike performance, especially the forwards who dominated the scrums and loose play. Teddington opened the scoring with a try but scrum half Alex Sampson took advantage of a gap in the Teddington defence for a well taken try. The metronomic boot of fly half Joe McEvoy converted two penalties and, after the break, Teddington gained some ball and territory and converted a penalty of their own.

No 8 Matt Mardle and lock Ben Warman featured in ground-claiming runs giving McEvoy a chink of space through which he jinked for the second try. He converted giving the home side a ten point platform. Some clever inter-passing from the Warlingham backline saw centre David Priest cross the line for Warlingham’s third and final try which, of course, McEvoy converted. Warlingham’s discipline faded when some frustration crept
into their game and a dropped rolling maul resulted in the referee awarding a penalty try. But McEvoy had the last say with a sweetly struck penalty to put the game out of touch for a plucky Teddington team. After the game Director of Rugby, Nick Warren said “Good to get the win but the penalty count against us was totally unacceptable and we really must learn to read the referee’s mind and cut out the infringements.”

Next Saturday Warlingham entertain Old Tiffinians who sit just one place about Warlingham in the league. All spectators are warmly welcomed to watch some free, exciting local sport. Bar open all afternoon.
