Veseyans built on a their big home win last time out to secure a convincing 37-3 win at Stafford.
Coming into the game the home side were just three points behind Veseyans in the league but the gulf between the sides on the day much much larger. On a very soft pitch the game started slowly as both sides made errors, it was always going to be the side who could take control of territory who would be successful and Veseyans adjusted quickest to the conditions. This resulted in a couple of early penalties and the Veseyans lineout drove over in the corner with hooker Matt ‘Cherry’ Bakewell coming up with the ball, Harry Griffiths added the extras. The remainder of the half saw some errors from both sides in difficult conditions under foot. Veseyans added two penalties through Griffiths and the home sided got 3 points for themselves, a half time score of 13-3 showed a tighter game than was being seen on the pitch.
In the second half Veseyans took control and began to make the most of their possession. A hat-trick of tries from Joe Williams took his count to eight in the last two games and 15 for the season, while the front row got in on the act again, this time it was Abu Abdul who forced his way over the line.
Veseyans will be extremely happy with their current form, the set piece in particular functioning well and the performances of second row Adam Mitchell have been impressive in recent weeks.
