Match Report for

Newport (1st) vs. South Shore Anchors (1st)
10 September 2016

Location: Fort Adams

Newport: 70    South Shore Anchors: 17

On a beautiful day in Newport, Newport RFC showed its class and speed in its backline, rolling up 10 tries, all converted by their excellent kicking No.10. The first half was a contest, with Newport opening the scoring with a try in the 9th minute, followed two more in the 18th and 24th minutes. South Shore, whose forwards battled all day, responded with their own well executed try in the 28th minute, followed soon thereafter by a penalty kick, bringing them to 21-10. Newport regained their composure and scored again 7 minutes later for a 28-10 half time lead. The second half saw two quick tries by Newport's backs, and they gradually wore down South Shore's defense in the backs and forwards, running in four more tries in the last fifteen minutes. The match was played in excellent spirit, with both teams playing positive rugby for 80 minutes. Well done, both teams.
