Match Report: Redruth storm onto Station Road.

9 months ago By Sam Harrison

Full time: 6 - 21

Redruth gained their first away win of 2018 due to the power of their forwards in the loose, superior ball retention in trying conditions and being the beneficiaries of some Clifton mistakes. It came as no surprise that three of the tries came from catch and drives from close to the Clifton line.

The Reds fly half Richie Kevern showed great presence in calling moves and his distribution enhanced his team’s performance. The first try came early on from a well judged penalty into the corner and a crab like drive to the post for skipper Richard Brown to touch down. The second came in similar fashion with Todd Prisk scoring with Kevern converting both.
It was again a clean break and touch down by Kevern before half time with him converting which gave the visitors a comfortable lead. Clifton responded with two Brad Barnes penalties.

The lavender and black men had their moments and held their own in the scrums but two mistakes spoiled try scoring opportunities that would have got them into the game. Wishing to keep clear of the relegation zone they threw on all replacements with the weather closing in and prevented the Reds from scoring until replacement Sean Buzza delivered from a further catch and drive.

Clifton will now be anxious to secure league points and hope the return of prop Alex Giltrow from Bristol will improve prospects. Similarly Redruth welcome back winger Alex Ducker from Hartpury College for the remainder of the season.
