Massive score line this week. 13 tries is excellent. We achieved what we set out to do; play through the phases, play in the right areas, trust our defense and when we scored a few tries we remained ruthless.

After 20 mins of shoving them all
over the place (nearly 60m made over 6/7 scrums) the game went suspiciously uncontested. It took us a while to adjust and Wandsworth threatened late in the 2nd half. Controversially opting for scrums at every opportunity. Our defence remained strong keeping our try line untouched.

The way the guys regrouped at half time was admirable. Last season we would have let it go to our heads and take our foot off the gas. We had decided that there were plenty of other areas to dominate and that was exactly what we did. The work in the breakdown was very good. Our lineouts were again excellent and for the most part our handling from 1-15 was very good.
