Redruth 33 Worthing Raiders 29

Reds take 5 points in an entertaining clash with the Raiders - Report by Bill Hooper

The final score-line made Redruth sweat during the second half as Worthing mounted a comeback in a proverbial game of two halves.
Both sides certainly threw the ball around in what was an entertaining game for the Redruth crowd, however the bonus point win edges the Reds closer to Taunton whom they play on Saturday.
With head coach Marek Churcher absent, coach Adrian Rutter gave his thoughts after the game. “It was a game of two halves, we looked good in the first half going in with a comfortable lead 28-5, we didn’t come out for the second half with same intensity as the first but you have to congratulate Worthing who battled away to earn what could for them prove to be two very useful points.
“We conceded a couple of turnover tries when camped in their twenty-two, maybe we were too clever for own good at times and they were sharp enough to exploit those chances.
Rutter was pleased with the forwards display and had a special word for lock Shaun Buzza who scored two of Redruth’s five tries. “He works very hard and carries well, he broke the line for his first try showing good strength and speed to break tackles, I think he has got a very good future in the game.
Hooker Richard Brown led Redruth out marking his 200th game for the Reds, whilst for Worthing former Cornish Pirate Ryan Storer made a return to the Duchy.
Redruth got off to a great start exploiting Worthing’s failure to control the kick-off allowing full-back Brett Rule to charge over from close range with barely a minute on the clock.
To make matters worse for the Raiders they also lost their centre Kiba Richards to a head injury during the build up to Rule’s try. Joel Matavesi added the extras for 7-0 lead.
Redruth soon had a second try on the board when rampaging lock Shaun Buzza bulldozed through a couple of attempted tackles to score a fine try that Rule converted.
Redruth were on fire during this period before the end of the first quarter Buzza had scored his second try off the back of a powerful forward drive, Rule again on the money for a 21-0 lead.
Worthing eventually got a foot-hold in the game when winger Nick Padenburg went over in the corner for an unconverted try.
Normal service was resumed for the Reds as centre Nielson Webber went over from short-range to notch up the bonus point score with Rule’s conversion making it 28-5 at the break.

The Redruth crowd settled down for the second half expecting more of the same but it didn’t pan out.
Worthing, under pressure near their line, turned the ball over and went the length of the field for full-back Harry Forrest to score with Matt McLean adding the extras.
McLean then went over himself for an unconverted score and suddenly the raiders were back to 28-17.
Redruth stirred themselves, with flanker Chris Fuca making a big break in mid-field before linking with winger Dean Bonds who dived over in the corner.
The Reds looked to score again with BJ Chapman the irresistible Buzza and prop Tommy Phillips putting in some good runs, but it was Worthing who had the final say scoring two further tries through Sam Boyland and Forrest with McLean adding a conversion to make sure of a couple of league points.
