Redruth 21 London Irish Wild Geese 22

Geese fly home with the win after last minute score - Report by Bill Hooper

The final kick of the game gave Wild Geese a bonus point win at Redruth which could well prove to be a lifeline for the London side in their bid to avoid the drop this season.
It capped a frustrating afternoon for Redruth in a game that they never really seemed to get a proper hold of but credit to the visitors who battled away and got their reward in the end.
Despite playing down the slope in the first half it was Wild Geese who got the first score with an unconverted try in the scoreboard corner from winger Matt Killeen.
Redruth lost influential scrum-half Jack Oulton after only 10 minutes, he hadn’t recovered in time from a knock the previous week against Camborne.
Despite some promising moves it took the Reds the best part of twenty minutes to get level from prop Tommy Phillips try off a catch and drive.
Fly-half Joe Elderkin, who had seen a first minute penalty attempt strike a post, slotted an excellent conversion for the lead.
The excellent Phillips got a second try before half-time as he was driven over from a powerful forward drive following a fine period of play from the Reds. Elderkin was again on the money with the extras.

The play and poise of the young fly-half will have impressed Richard Sharp who was present at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.
Lock Brad Howe departed the fray at half-time having taken a heavy knock and it was his replacement BJ Chapman who got Redruth’s third try, put in space by Elderkin he romped his way to the posts. The fly-half again added the conversion and Redruth looked set fair 21-5 up.
Was it a lack of concentration but the game swung Irish’s way when Tyler Bush found a gap to crash over for an unconverted score.
That try lifted the visitors and they soon had a third when full back George Owen scored.
In the final minute the game went to uncontested scrums from which Irish launched a final assault, they managed to snaffle a lineout to take play into the Redruth twenty-two leading to a try for lock George Drye.
Having missed all three previous conversions, Irish luck prevailed at the last as centre Ben Kitchen’s kick split the uprights!

After the final whistle head coach Marek Churcher was disappointed with his side’s performance. “That was very frustrating to watch on the sidelines, our concentration wasn’t top notch today and we were made to pay in the end. Hats off to London Irish they battled hard and showed a real desire today and got their rewards”.
“We will look to re-group this week ahead of our final game at Henley on Saturday and look to finish on a high.”
