Plumpton were no match for Uckfield 2nd XV, despite dominating all set phases of play, going down 30-12.

Tries came for Plumpton from Grant Resteriuex and Rhys Beale, with older brother Lewis Beale converting.

Plumpton realised they were in for a game when they saw more spectators on the touchline than for Uckfields 1st team game on the next pitch. Uckfield boasted a side brimming with university students looking to play a game before returning to university.

Plumpton were by far the stronger side, dominating the collision, scrums and line-out, but could not match the fitness and intensity of the new Uckfield side. Plumpton wre unlucky not to have more than one push over try, the Plumpton scrum at times destroying the younger pack making significant yardsge a dozen times in the game.

Uckfield again relied on their number 10, woh ran the show and put Uckfield in the winning position. Man-of-the-match for Plumpton was abrasive flanker Brodie Forest.

This week Plumpton host Littlehampton, the battle of the best one team clubs in Sussex. Kick-off 2.15pm.
