Both teams began the second half looking to create a continuity of play focusing on ball retention and exposing gaps. HSG and Marr played with a respectful but pleasing attitude to attacking from anywhere on the pitch. Once, the game became unstructured, HSG took full advantage of deploying their forwards and backs to attack the space in an around the breakdown. HSG went on to score four trys, and Marr a conciliation try through Sam Moore. An exciting game and both teams should be very pleased by the effort and commitment to play an exiting brand of Rugby.
