West Norfolk come from behind to maintain 100 per cent start to 2019

West Norfolk Rugby Club came from behind to maintain their 100 per cent start to 2019.

Ipswich YM registered the first try of the afternoon but West Norfolk never looked back after fighting back to hold a 13-8 advantage going into the break.

Fly-half Sam Moses led the way with a perfect record of nine successful goals from as many kicks, six of which were conversions and three penalties.

On the victory, which saw West Norfolk move up to fourth in the London 3 Eastern Counties League standings, manager Damien Fish said: "This was another great performance today at home.

"We cannot forget the fact that Ipswich beat league leaders Holt only a few games ago so we knew we had to put the hard work in to get the result to maintain our 100 per cent record for 2019.

"We have some very difficult games coming up so training over the next few weeks is extremely important if we want to keep our run going.

"So many players played well today, but credit where it’s due to Sam who has an incredible kicking record so far this year.

"To top it off with a nine out of nine kick record today with some very tough kicks was brilliant.

"He was a well-deserved man of the match."

Try scorers for West Norfolk, who are without a fixtures this weekend, were: Henry Rust, Stephen Aspery (2), Alex Singleton, Morgan Smith and Moses.

West Norfolk's next league game comes against third-placed Holt at Gatehouse Lane on Saturday, February 16.

West Norfolk squad: 1 Luke Covell, 2 Henry Rust, 3 Paul Denton, 4 Samuel Mount, 5 Adam Fox, 6 Conor Clarke, 7 Richard Gallagher, 8 Will Greenwood, 9 Hayden Revell, 10 Sam Moses, 11 Joe Lewis-Mitchell, 12 Alex Singleton, 13 Edney Costa, 14 Stephen Aspery, 15 Mark Tilbrook, 16 Ben Flores, 17 Aaron Swanborough (coach), 18 Morgan Smith.
