Academy learn to keep discipline

Academy learn to keep discipline
Tunbridge Wells Rugby Academy play in the Kent Cup

Wells’ confidence grew after they took the lead thanks to a powerful run by Jamie Phillips, and the team started to settle into the game.

However, midway through the first half Wells’ poor discipline became the main focus of the game as they struggled to deal with constant infringements.

Strong leadership was called for as Conrad Fletcher, the Wells captain, took his team aside and laid down the law, and they went into half-time 29-0 ahead

In the second half Wells took control of their game and learned how to keep the referee’s whistle at bay and get back into the swing of scoring.

A brief lapse in concentration saw their discipline slip again, which allowed Maidstone in for a try. But Wells ran in two further tries to make the final score 67-5.

The try-scorers were Jamie Phillips (2), Connor Bourne (3), Ed Shepherdson (2), Innes Woodhouse, Euan Symonds, Markuss Lagunovičs and George Ireland, while Ed Shepherson kicked four conversions.
