Wadebridge Camels 18, Penryn 14

After a dominant first half the Borough were made to pay in the second, as Wadebridge came back to snatch a narrow victory, writes Ross Hancock.

The game was marred by a serious looking injury to Will Freeman and everyone at the club wishes Will the best in his recovery.

Going into the game it was always likely to be a tough tussle, with just a point separating the two sides in the table. The Borough took the spoils at home earlier on in the season, which gave them plenty of confidence going into the game.

It was an excellent start for the Borough, who settled well and quickly took the lead thanks to an excellent Kyle Bradley try, converted by Sam Carter. The hosts hit back quickly to level the scores at 7-7, but the half would belong to Penryn. A second from Bradley and a second conversion from Carter restored a seven-point lead.

The Borough were good value for their lead and in truth should have been further in front heading into the second half, something they were ultimately made to pay for.

The Camels reduced the arrears to 14-12 with an early unconverted try and from there on in, the game began to slip away from the visitors. Falling foul of the referees whistle on more than one occasion, it gave Wadebridge the opportunity to take a narrow lead and then extend it with two quick fire penalty goals.

The Borough were still very much in contention trailing by only four points, but clear cut chances were few and far between. They would eventually have to settle for a losing bonus point, but it was a case of what might have been.

Elsewhere it was another excellent day for the Saracens, who recorded a 41-10 league victory at home to Bodmin 2s, fielding a strong squad once again.
