It was definitely a confidence boost as a few minutes later the down-high team had a five meter scrum and Reece Hagan picked at the base and did well to draw in defenders beforeoff-loading to scrum half Connor Gibson who scored the second try of the game. This certainly added to the pressure on the Grosvenor team especially as kicker Greg Hutley did well to convert as he did throughout the game. This brought the score to 12-0 at the end of the first half.
The whistle blew and the second half was underway. The first 10 minutes were rather quietalthough numerous line breaks from the Grosvenor side, but fullback Jonathon Mason made sure that they progressed no further.Another try came from Reece Hagan when he picked from the back of the scrum and did well to ground the ball after many defenders came rushing towards him. A try looked certain after Torran Stock charged-down a kick inside the Grosvenor 22, to his dismay he was tackled just before the try line and Grosvenor regained possession.
A quick try from Charlie Marshall added to the ever growing lead. The game was not over yet when winger Andrew McCoubrey showed goodforesight to score under the posts after crossing the white wash close to the touch line. The Grosvenor side remained very ambitious even in the final minutes but strong defence from Matthew Fraizer, Christy Lindsay and the rest of the Down-High team saw that the opposition failed to get over the line. The clock had run over when Hutley kicked the ball into touch to end the game for an impressive 31-0 win.
