Despite putting a much improved performance against Rosslyn Park two late tries saw the visitors snatch all 5 points to break Esher hearts.
Tries from Broughton, Howe, Bellamy and two tries from Sam Shires including two in the last few moments of the game effectively killed off the contest with Sneddon’s kicking ultimately proving the difference. A final scoreline of 38-30 seemed harsh on Esher who showed tremendous endeavour throughout the game however a lack of focus in the remaining moments of the match ultimately proved their downfall.
However there will be encouraging signs to take from this performance. Esher showed huge character and the direct running of the players put Park under huge pressure. The men from Molesey Road next travel to Coventry in what will be a very tough game.
