The final game of Lewes Colts’ somewhat bizarre season was away to Edenbridge Colts on a grey, blustery day, more akin to February conditions than the end of May.

Lewes had a few missing due to injury, work and family commitments and other poor excuses but the team’s strength in depth meant they still fielded a quality squad of 23.

Lewes started cautiously with a penalty but soon had the try count underway with fine tries from Ben G and Jack, as well as a good old fashioned trundle from Ed.

Edenbridge struggled to live with Lewes’ pace and strength and Jack and Finlay then added further impressive tries to make it 30-0 at the break.

After half-time the rains came. Edenbridge camped down in the Lewes 22 and, although the visitors defended stoutly, eventually Edenbridge found their way over the whitewash to make it 30-7.

Thankfully the rain quickly dried up and Lewes got back into their rhythm with three further tries from Ben B, Raff and Cam, all out of the top draw.

The ref sensibly blew up a few minutes early as one of the Edenbridge players took a nasty knock to the head.

The final score was 47-7 making it five convincing wins out of five for the season.

* After a very wet and windy start, the Lewes RFC Lionesses U15 team played brilliant rugby against a very determined Seaford. With the half-time score at 25-10 to Lewes it looked like being a close second half. However Lewes seemed to find another gear and did not let Seaford score again while racking up the tries themselves. The final score was 75-10 to Lewes.
