TETBURY raced away from Fairford seconds with a dominant second half display.
Glos Reserve League 4
Fairford II 14
Fairford started strongly, putting early pressure on Tetbury and were rewarded with a successfully converted penalty.
Tetbury responded with a series of strong attacks and, after good build-up play, hooker Scott Cannon took the ball at pace 20 metres out and broke through Fairford’s defensive line to score the opening try of the game; the conversion was added by fly half Tom Horrell.
Horrell added two further penalties before Fairford closed the gap with an unconverted try.
Tetbury made a number of changes at half-time to give all their squad players time on the pitch and began to take command.
Mark Snell broke several tackles to score the opening try of the half and it was quickly followed by a try from his centre partner Fred Kass which was converted by Horrell.
Tetbury’s backs were now enjoying themselves, running freely from the plentiful possession being produced by their hard working forwards.
Further tries followed from wingers Ky Thomas and Lee Jones along with scrum half Lewis Prosser.
Fairford briefly stemmed the tide and were rewarded with a successful penalty kick.
Tetbury, however, finished the game strongly with a second try each for Kass and Jones, one of which being converted by Prosser.
