Gravesend fightback is in vain as Tonbridge Juddians take the derby spoils in National League 3 London & South East
Tonbridge Juddians took the derby spoils on Saturday, despite a
second-half fightback by Gravesend.
The west Kent side opened the scoring when hooker Kevin Corrigan
crossed for a try which Dan Hawkes converted.
Tom Nabbs went over for a second TJs score and although the
conversion was missed, Hawkes kicked a penalty to leave Gravesend
trailing 15-0 at the interval.
A try from Charlie Harding made it 20-0 but the Gs got
themselves on the scoreboard when Jamie Forsyth went over for their
first try. Dave McMurtrie added the extras.
Chris Meddings then converted a Marc Klus try and, although
Gravesend were unable to save themselves from defeat, they did at
least pick up a bonus point.
That leaves them five clear of the drop zone in National 3
London & South East with four games remaining. TJs, meanwhile,
sit fifth in the table.
