Four score Masaki stars in Colts win

BOGNOR under-17s strong season rolls on as they look to build on an impressive victory in the New Forest.

 

The Purple and Greens came out 44-19 victors against their counterparts at Ellingham and Ringwood in what was their first visit to the area.

 

On Sunday, they host the Isle of Wight Colts side at Hampshire Avenue (1pm) looking to keep an unbeaten run which stretches back to November rolling on.

 

They will want to get off to a good start, just like they did in the New Forest when fly half Conner Herrington kicked an early penalty before a perfectly judged catch and drive saw hooker Tyrone Masaki touch down in the corner.

 

A second try followed soon after when, following several phases, skipper Harry Joyce used all his strength to crash through and score.

 

The hosts came back strongly and scored a well taken try after a period of concerted pressure.

 

Bognor hit back and from quick ball Masaki slipped through the first line of defence and outpaced the cover to score under the posts. Herrington converted.

 

A fourth score followed just before the break when Freddie Hayes supported a break from the fly half. Half time 22-5

 

A raft of changes at half time disrupted Bognor flow and the home side capitalised to close the gap to ten points.

 

Bognor restored their lead through Masaki (2), George Orchard and flying winger Lewis Decarteret rounded off the scoring against E&R.

 

— Chichester U11s played in their first Land Rover Cup last Saturday, taking on Wimbledon, Cranbrook and Winchester in glorious spring sunshine.

 

They also got to meet Joe Marchant, Max Crumpton and Niall Saunders from Quins who posed for photos and spent time doing a Q&A with the team.
