A very disappointing game for a Veseyans Colts side that travelled to Telford with a few no shows.
Veseyans won the second half as they were a very different side compared to that in the first half. The second half they played with more passion and they were more direct.
Throughout the game Veseyans dominated both set pieces but constantly made bad decisions and lost the ball at the contact area. However this at times was down to interpretation of the laws. Telford had a very powerful player at No.8 who proved to be their made weapon, Veseyans failed most of the time in the first up tackles which gave Telford the momentum and meant they very much played on the front foot.
Trailing 19-0 at half time and following a number of injuries Veseyans started the second half with hookers on the wing and 2nd rows in the centre. However, their approach and attitude was very different. A well taken try by Imran Dalvi, a hooker playing on the wing showed some excellent football skills and scored in the corner and converted by Dan Hemming.
Continued pressure by Veseyans led to another try scored by David Riley and again converted by Dan Hemming. With the score now at 19-14 Veseyans pushed to secure the win but then two mistakes whilst in possession led to two further unconverted tries by Telford to complete the score line.
