Debutant tries help Cantabrigian to win over Campion

Bonus point win on the road

Ollie Townsend and Jamie Faed marked their Cantabrigian debuts with tries as they earned a 22-7 win at bottom club Campion in London League 2NE.

After five minutes, James Hayward found the right-hand corner with a penalty and from the resulting catch and drive, Dave Evershed touched down for Cantabs.

Seventeen minutes later, Hayward made a break and play was moved across the pitch for Faed to score in the corner to make it 10-0.

Cantabs increased their lead to 15-0 at half time as a long pass from Hayward to Faed on the left saw Townsend then brought into action to touch down.

Campion, who are yet to pick up a point this season, ended the period in a positive spirit and started to grow in confidence, being held up twice over the line.

From a tap penalty, Hayward exchanged passes with Drew Tilley and ghosted around two defenders to score in front of the posts to earn the bonus point, and the fly-half also landed the conversion.

Campion managed to score a converted try, but their No 8 was sin-binned after a fracas as Cantabs saw out a 22-7 win.
