Match Report: Kilburn Cosmos v Grasshoppers

Seniors: Second XV: 23rd September 2017

Kilburn Cosmos 26 31 Grasshoppers
This will go down as one of the great 2nd XV wins. On a week strewn with unavailabilities it was touch and go whether there would be 3rd team and a much depleted 2nd team but the true Grasshoppers spirit emerged in Kilburn amidst the gospel singing of the local community. God was with us this day. An equally depleted but fiery Kilburn 2s fought back in the second half as our players were falling like flies from a mixture of injuries and a yellow card. But hang in there we did to get the bonus point win! Out 1st half performance in the forwards was adequate at best until we realised that the work rate need to improve. The backs were at times very slick and caused them no end of trouble, particularly Scott Poulton and Connor Cain (both men of the match). 2nd half saw our forwards put in a massive defensive effort and I mean massive effort and then provided enough ball for the backs to finish off the game. Big thank you to Matt Sherwen & Kelvin Lee Austin and all the forwards who really pulled together. Chris Roberts not a natural 10 but an experienced back played like a rock at 10 and captained superbly keeping the lads going.
