Match Report

                                         Thanet 3rd 18 Canterbury 5th 17

 
The weekend before Halloween proved haunting for Canterbury . Down 6-0 within the first ten minutes through soft penalties, the start was inauspicious . There was a sense around the ground that Thanet  had the measure of the City side.
 So, it proved when they went further ahead through a converted try but the cit side dug in, produced a solid defensive display and hit back with a try shortly before half time.
 With the wind increasingly a factor, and now at Canterbury’s backs, the second half was a much more even affair. Gareth Thomas ran 60 metres to score behind the posts, but the conversion failed not helped by the kicking tee going missing.
 More pressure, brought an unconverted try for Nick Calder but Thanet replied with one of their own before Thomas cut through for the final try of the game, converted by a drop kick, but the final whistle came a little too early
