                           CANTERBURY PILGRIMS  10 WIMBLEDON 2ND 12


Pilgrims missed out in a tight Zoo League game played under tough conditions at the MTG.  The only two sides to have beaten league leaders Hertford showed their quality wiith the visitors cliaming the win with the only score of the second half. They started the game better and took the lead with a converted try before Canterbury pulled three points back through a Will Hilton penalty goal.  A dartng run by scrum half Kyan Braithwaite then set up Frank Morgan for a try and with Hilton adding the goal points Pilgrims had edged ahead by half time. The second half was even for long periods but with 20 minutes left Wimbledon  pinned Pilgrims in their own half and drove a maul 25 metres to score what proved to be the winning try. In testing wet conditons Pilgrims were unable to get a grip on the game while Wimbledon adapted better and successfully proptected their narow lead.

Pilgrims: G.Hilton, R.Howard, B.Nash, F.Morgan, I.Horner, W.Hilton, K.Braithwaite, C.Townley, E.Deacon, E.White, A.Woodward. A.Wake-Smith, D.Bailey, V.Meredith, G.Westgarth, J.Gallagher, S.Jaynes, J.Craig, H.Dance
