Rugby: Thurrock squeeze home against Cobham

THURROCK travelled to Cobham who the previous week held on to their league status with a win at Chichester. As always in this division there are no easy games and so it proved in what was a game that could have gone the home side’s way had Thurrock not installed a much tougher mental attitude on the road.

FOR the third consecutive Saturday the weather played a significant part in the way the game panned out. It was cold and wet, and Thurrock lost the toss and had the advantage of the elements, and after early pressure Sam Stanley knocked over a penalty before Jake Barrand Was worked some space and he went over in the corner, the conversion fell short.
