Tough afternoon for Woking against early league leaders

Woking RFC 5 Vs Streatham & Croydon 80

In torrential rain and high winds Woking took to the field to take on league leaders Streatham & Croydon.

Woking started poorly conceding three tries in the first 15 minutes. Much of which was self-inflicted rather than due to the conditions and it set the tone for the afternoon.

Woking rallied halfway through the half and a sustained period of forward pressure put the visitors on the back foot. Woking were rewarded when captain O’Shea crossed the whitewash from a few meters out. For a moment it looked like Woking had woken up and were starting to rise to the challenge of taking on the league leaders.

However, this was short lived as Streatham showed why they will take some stopping this season. Woking on the other hand will be disappointed that they were unable to build on the improved performances of the past few weeks.
