Old Albanians II
Almost an America's Cup of our own..
Despite a fierce fightback from 5-24 down to get within 2 points with 5 mins to go, it was not to be..
Bright debuts from Georges Bertonneau and second row Matt Perks were each sealed with a try a piece, and the eagerly awaited return of Joe Brown who completed 80 mins was capped off with his own 5 pt contribution. Tobias Guyett scored the pick of the 4 with a mecurial chip over from outside his own 22m a hack on and the luck of the bounce to touch down under the sticks.
