Vectis RFC V's Eastleigh RFC

One to build on.

On a surprisingly nice day, the Vectis colts fledgling unbeaten record was unfortunately halted on a visit to Hampshire rivals Eastleigh. After a somewhat chaotic journey and a lack lustre warm up it was actually the visiting side that started the better of the two teams. A great angled run from inside centre Luke Wedderkop was picked out perfectly by stand in FH george lawrence allowing for the bulldozing centre to crash through the middle. A fantastic off load out of contact, to Michael Joyce making his official debut on the wing, meant the former flanker could use his speed and strength to crash over the line with Eastleigh defenders trailing in his wake.
Unfortunately, this was the only scoring success the visiting side would have for quite a while. By their own admission, Vectis relaxed somewhat allowed the home side straight back into the game. A few quick tries had the island based team reeling but constant entreaties by captain and number 8 Damian Seder rallied the team and they finished the latter stages of the first half playing the better rugby.
Regrettably, it was not to be Vectis’s day to rally. Every 50/50 decision and bounce of the ball seemed to go against them on this occasion. Questionable refereeing around the break downs meant that the hurricanes forwards could not get a foothold in the game due to fear of being penalised. Despite some mighty defensive efforts from Jack Simmonds at full back and Tom Randall at lock/back row the home side continued to rack up the points.
Despite the dubious refereeing and the eventual cynical play of a minute number of the Eastleigh squad there were some positives to take from this match. Amin Sherif, Vectis’s Norwegian import, put in a mighty performance, earning himself man of the match in the process, on his first start for the team and James Reed playing at SH, continues to improve with each game. Not an easy task when the ball is being kicked from your hand illegally.
Not just content with opening the scoring the visiting Vectis team felt the need to close it to, haring onto a wayward Eastleigh pass, Wedderkop set off for the oppositions try line for his now trademark last minute try. His centre partner, and first time kick taker Max Wheeler slotted the extra 2 easily. Too little to late unfortunately but the plenty for the island colts to work on, and nobody could ask more of the young men, heads held high till the last whistle in the face of great adversity. by Harrison Booth.
