Battle of the seconds sees Seaford prevail over Rye

SEAFORD travelled to Rye on Saturday with a very strong side to do battle with Rye, who have been having some fantastic results this season against equally strong opposition this season.

fter the long journey up to Rye, Seaford were still not fully engaged and ready for the game, and got off to a poor star with Rye running in the first try with in the first few minutes.

This woke the Scarlets up and they quickly came back at the opposition with a well-worked try by Chris Burns cutting through the middle of the park.

Rye were again on the score sheet after a few minutes and, with the conversion added, they were once again in the lead at 12-5.

From that point Rye would not find their way through the Seaford defence again and in total conceded a total of 10 tries, five conversions and a penalty.

A joint man of the match went to Matt Read and Ed Jackson. Read, who in his first season of playing, really showed his potential with some very strong running and great confidence around the field, while Jackson, who is also in his first season, showed his talent for running with the ball in hand – with his 90-metre dash through the Rye defence to score the last try of the day.
