Spectacular finish by the Reds seals the win and 5 points - Report by Bill Hooper

MATCH SPONSOR: LEE JEFFERY FITWELL FLOORING LTD

Three tries in the final ten minutes of this pulsating encounter gave Redruth a bonus point win against a plucky Old Albanian side that will rue they didn’t make more of their first half advantage of playing down the slope.
Redruth Director of Rugby Nigel Hambly was pleased with the win but still feels he isn’t getting the best from his side. “We won today, but for me we should always win at home no matter who we are playing. Having said that Old Albanian gave us a good test especially in the first half when I felt we were a little flat.
“We seem to play in patches, playing well and then falling off the pace and then coming good again, we lack consistency and it’s vexing for me because I can’t put my finger on it. We are getting better and when we do play we can put together some great rugby but we can’t do it for a full eighty.

Despite Old Albanian pressure early on it was Redruth who took an early lead thanks to a couple of penalties from full-back Aaron Simmonds.
Old Albanian’s reply came in style as a move from their own twenty-two lead to an unconverted try from centre Matt Deane in the corner.
Redruth scored their first try soon after from a catch and drive with skipper Richard Brown being driven over, Simmonds adding a fine conversion in the difficult wind.
The nip and tuck nature of the game continued and when fly-half Dan Watt kicked to the corner the visitors created a fine try for centre Charlie Watson that was bettered by Watt.
The score remained 13-12 to Redruth at half-time as frustratingly for Old Albanian they missed a clear overlap spilling the ball.

The third quarter remained tight until Redruth finally broke the deadlock following good work between Brad Howe and wing Dean Bonds with the No.8 going over for Redruth’s second try.
Williams was having a fine game in the pack with flankers Mark Grubb, Sam Stevens and locks Jack Heazelton, Todd Prisk all carrying well.
Watt trimmed the home advantage with a penalty as the game went into the final quarter.
The Redruth bench came into play with the likes of Pale Nonu, Loma Kivalu and Jake Clemson making a difference. It was the latter who scored the Reds’ third try to put them two scores ahead.
Old Albanian pressed to get something from the game, a penalty chance was missed by the normally reliant Watt.
It was Redruth who finished the stronger with two breakaway tries in the final moments. Centre Nielson Webber snaffled a stray pass to gallop in from 35 meters and then another storming run by No.8 Brad Howe was finished off by wing Rob Coote in Hellfire Corner to deflate the visitors.
The final whistle sounded soon after to the joy of the Redruth faithful celebrating a fine win.
