Bedford Tigers 54 Deer Hemel 14
It was East Premier League action for Bedford Tigers this weekend, with a game against fierce rivals Hemel Stags played in high spirits.
The game started with the Tigers having a decent breeze down their backs and the team with some regulars, a few returning from injury and new players, who immediately bonded well.
The game may have been more consistent than the score suggests, but the Tigers were more clinical and had more moments of exceptional individual skill. Five tries were scored in the first half, against two of their opponents, with Palmer, Moon, Marshall, Hearne and Ryan Litchfield running powerfully the entire match, scoring the first of his two tries for the afternoon. .
The second half was a similar story. The headwind did little to cushion the Tigers’ excellent attacking play and the scoreboard continued to turn. Viller and Hill scored good tries, as well as Litchfield’s second, but an exceptional individual effort from Dario Nangle stood out. Alex Smith scored the last try and with seven conversions achieved a personal total of eighteen points in a complete victory.
An excellent start to this competition, therefore, with the real prospect of fighting for this title for the Tigers, if they keep this form.
