WON 47-7

A strong start saw Epsom 5-0 up within 5 minutes thanks to some excellent rucking and a powerful drive by Aarav Rajnikanth (F). Brighton always looked a danger and Epsom found themselves defending their try line on a number of occasions in the first half as they found it difficult to find their defensive shape. Harry Pearson (H) made two outstanding breakaway runs and scored two tries in quick succession, both of which Harry Boxer (G) successfully converted. With the ball, Epsom looked strong and Lorcan McMahon (F) finished the first half with a well-worked try. Brighton came out hungry in the second half and Epsom quickly found themselves under the posts. However, as Epsom started to find their defensive line better they looked stronger and stronger and further tries by McMahon, Boxer and Daniel Glynne (P) saw the match end 47-7. In a game where every player shone, Harry Boxer played consistently well throughout and scored 17 points. Special mention also goes to Julian Pearl (C) for two try-saving tackles in the second half and full commitment to the game.
