PLAYING into a strong wind in the first half Harlow were immediately pinned back in their own 22. However, patient defence and good, accurate clearance kicks from half backs Danny Smith and Charlie Woodington meant the red men were able to weather the early storm unscathed.
THIS game was meant to be a league game but unfortunately Rochford only had 14 players available and therefore conceded the win to us. So we decided to make it a friendly.

HARLOW were forced to field a changed team against Stowmarket on Saturday and despite coming back strongly in the final quarter they were unable to record a much needed win. The problem was not in this case injuries so much as the fact that several players were suffering from a virus which seems to be affecting a lot of people locally. The team they fielded involved several changes in both personnel and positions which never helps.
THIS was a very tight game. We have not played Basildon since the minis so they were an unknown to us but saying that they were not sure about us ever. We only had 15 players at the start of the game with one of our players turning up just before half time. This due to car trouble. We had a bit of a walk to the pitch. We walked out of the club car park. Turn right then left. Passed the tracker factory. Over a dual carriageway and then through a hedge and onto the pitch. That was the warm up done.
After a quick warm up and a little acclimatisation to dreadful weather we get under way with the first game. It’s cold out there and the kids spend the first half getting a little stuck in, but there was more to come in the second half with a much better performance going down the hill.

Harlow needed to bounce back after last weeks disappointing defeat to Old Cooperians. They started positively, playing down the slope taking the game to May & Baker. Strong scrummaging by Harlow forwards gave the backs space to run at the visitors back line. For the first 15 minutes Harlow could not make this pressure tell with points. M & B had a chance to take the lead after 16mins, but missed a kickable penalty. After 30mins Scott Whitby made a darting run on the right wing shrugging off a couple of tackles and feeding the ball to a speedy supporting Fricker. He found No. 8 Clarridge to take the ball under the posts. With Smith converting Harlow were ahead by 7 points to nil.
