After four weeks of postponed games due to the weather, Seaford finally got back on the pitch this week when they hosted high-flying Chichester at the Salts.
The match started at a high tempo and didn’t slow down at any point thereafter.
Within five minutes Seaford were on the score sheet, when a superb chip over the defence by Paul Hardwick was gathered by Scarlet speedster Darren Flynn to score in the corner.
Although Chi played some fast and physical rugby and managed to get on the scoreboard in both halves, it was safe to say Seaford never really looked in danger of losing the game due to their complete dominance around the park and in the scrums.
Seaford were unlucky not to increase their lead even further when Dan Newby, Mike Upton and Mike Cox all came within scoring distance only to be halted by some ferocious defensive play by the visitors. Flynn went on to score two tries in total to earn him a well-deserved MOM. Other scorers were captain Paul Burns and Josh Shepperd, with fly-half Paul Hardwick kicking four conversions and three penalties to bring the final tally to 35-15 in Seafords favour.
Next Seaford host Hove in another critical league match at the Salts. Kick off 2.15pm, weather permitting.
