St Just 36, Lankelly-Fowey 12

ST JUST returned to winning ways with a good performance against a spirited Lankelly-Fowey side at Tregeseal Valley on Saturday.

The hosts started strongly and soon had the visitors pegged inside their own half. After ten minutes, the hosts opened the scoring, the dominant Tigers pack pushing the Kelly scrum back, allowing scrum half James Maddern to dart over.

Maddern was involved again five minutes later as St Just extended their lead. He and flanker Asher Richards secured a turnover, allowing Richards to break clear and score, full back Steve Walsh converting.

Five minutes before the interval, the St Just pack again showed their power, scoring from a rolling mall from just inside the Lankelly 22, Richards bagging his second try of the game and Walsh converting well from wide out to make it 19-0 at the half.

St Just continued to dominate after the interval and were soon in the points again, centre Danny Robins crashing over from close range after another strong Tigers scrum, with Walsh converting.

To the visitors' credit they kept pushing hard and were rewarded for their hard work when their lock crashed over from short range, converted by the fly-half.

St Just answered straight back, and No8 Sam Vernon touched down after another scrum five metres out was powered over by the pack.

Five minutes from time fly-half Simon Barnes skipped through the visitors' defence and showed great pace to score from 20 metres out. With the last play of the game. Lankelly scored again, a quick tap penalty was spread wide for the No8 to score.

St Just will look to build on this win when they make the trip to Camelford on Saturday.

St Just: Douglas, P Stevens, Prowse, Marment, D Stevens, Oats, A Richards, Vernon, Maddern, Barnes, Batten, Robins, Usher, J Richards, Walsh. Replacements: D Cock, Odendaal, Stedmon, Taylor, A Cock.
