22nd Feb - 2xv Away Win 26-19
V Heathfield and Waldron (League)
17 Saxons arrived at Waldron to face only 14 opponents. The new rules mean the game started 14-a-side giving plenty of space to run. Heathfield started the game by exploiting a gap on the wing to open the score sheet. Trys came from both teams (including Matt Smith) bring the scores even to 12 all. Luke Davies added an older head in the second half at No.8.
The Heathfield pack remain a tough unit, but Hellingly are growing in confidence in the scrum and lineout. The commitment to the Saxons continues to build, with old faces re-joining and enjoying the run out with some of our newest members. Steve Gower, the Peter Pan of rugby, earned man of the match with 2 great trys. Matt Dauber, skippered well - adding a try and 3 conversions.
