A brave display from Woking who fought with spirit and passion for the whole game but could not stop the league leaders running away on the scoreboard.

Woking's pack led by captain Johnson forced Caterham to contest every ball but when the ball went loose despite maximum effort Caterhams impressive back line were unstoppable running at pace and moving the ball with accuracy.

Midway through the first half Woking's pack turned over the ball and set up a powerful maul which they controlled and rolled from the twenty two eventually crossing the try line for outstanding hooker O’Shea to touch down, to sum the day up the conversion hit the inside of the post but bounced out.

After further excellent rugby from Caterham, Woking's pack again worked their way into the opposition twenty two and powerful play from props Pearce and Haydar kept them moving towards the line, flankers Wright and Dickie protecting the ball just short of the line allowing number eight Johnson to burst through the last defenders and dot down, this time Jarman conversion flew through the posts for the extra points.

Woking played with pride and made no excuses, but they need to see key players returning from what is a cripplingly long injury list. Club President Stanley Fisher stating how proud he was of those players that had stood up in the first team to cover injuries “ everyone out there today played their hearts out’ an encouraging sight for the future.
