Academy News Wins for Hobbs and Hall, frustration for Moseley quintet
The Saints first team and Under-18s both got wins on the board this weekend, as did two of the club’s Senior Academy who were out on dual registration duty in the National Leagues.
Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi started for Coventry in their National League One trip to Henley Hawks. The England Under-20 prop was part of an organised, solid performance which earned themselves a 18-10 win, Cliff Hodgson kicking six penalties.
In National League Two South scrum-half Lewis Hall continued his comeback from injury by coming off the bench to help inspire Chinnor to a memorable 26-25 win at Redruth. Despite scoring first through Jamie Townsend, the travellers found themselves five points down at the break, a margin which had increased to 13 points with 10 minutes to go.
But with Hall upping the tempo Chinnor played themselves back into the contest with two tries for Matt Goode. The second of these came in the last play of the game, and with Leo Fielding on target with the conversion there was no time for Redruth to reply.
On Friday night there was frustration in Dublin for Will Hooley, Alex Day, Adam Parkins, Tom Warren and Matt Williams as Moseley came up against a Leinster ‘A’ side who continued their 100 percent record in the British and Irish Cup.
Hooley landed one penalty in the first half and a second soon after the break as Moseley imposed pressure to stay in touch at Donnybrook, and when the fly half converted Mike Penn’s try it gave the travellers a 13-11 lead.
However Leinster fought back with a try on the hour, with a second in the last 10 minutes sealing a 23-13 win for the B&I Cup champions.
