MATCH SPONSORS SMITHCORP

Trailing 10-0 at half-time, the Reds had to be patient before finally taking their chances to win the game in the final quarter. The result sees Redruth move up to second place in the National League 2 South table behind leaders Redingensians.
Redruth’s forwards coach Gareth Tedstone was delighted with his side’s sixth win from seven starts. “I am pleased we battled to another win, the elements played a big part today. We defended very well throughout against a big side who carried well and put us under pressure.
“I was pleased that we kept them to 10-0 at half-time, that gave us a chance in the second half although I knew we would have to be patient and use the conditions to our advantage, we did have some good fortune with our first try but that’s the way it goes at times, our second try was well-worked and our patience paid off.”

Canterbury made a strong start against the wind with their big heavy forwards making good ground into the Redruth twenty-two.
They were rewarded with an opening try scored by centre Tom Best following good work by Ricky Mackintosh on the wing, who did well to keep the ball alive near touch.
Goal-kicking was to prove difficult in the conditions with Canterbury’s fly-half Harvey Young having no luck.
The Reds finally gone some territory in the opposing twenty-two but sadly chances went begging as they became too eager near the line.
The crowd also became increasingly frustrated as they felt that several indiscretions from the visitors went unpunished.
Instead Canterbury increased their advantage with a second unconverted try scored just after the half-hour by full-back Aiden Moss following good forward pressure near the Redruth line. It remained 10-0 to the visitors up to half-time.

The breakthrough for Redruth had an element of good fortune, a kick ahead by full-back Aaron Simmonds appeared to rebound off a Canterbury player and into the arms of centre Jack Simmons who ran thirty meters to the line, tackled just short he managed to stretch and score. Simmonds added the extras to make it game on.
Good play from scum-half Jack Oulton, who once again had an excellent game, set up the move that eventually led to a powerful forward drive from Redruth that saw replacement prop Jack Hodge driven over, Simmonds once more on the money with the extras.
The drama didn’t end there, Canterbury with two players in the bin could have struggled as Redruth looked to make the game safe, however Canterbury went back to basics camping under the Redruth posts for an age but couldn’t get over despite the twelve minutes of time added on.
Redruth head to London Irish Wild Geese this Saturday and will be looking to keep the momentum going.
