Hornets Colts 14 pts

HORNETS Colts made the trip to Bath to face a strong side containing a fair share of county players.

The visitors opened the scoring when the ball was quickly moved to George Lavallin, who beat the last two defenders to dot down at the posts, with Alex Colborne adding the extras.

You may also want to watch:

Outside centre Sam Balkham stretched Hornets lead when a smart midfield move saw him score a try that Colborne again converted. Jake Powell was unlucky not to get himself on the scoresheet when his charge down and kick ahead eventually bounced the wrong way.

Connor Baker enjoyed a fine game in the front row, as did young Curtis Higgins from the bench. Bailey Jackson carried the ball well and David Grubb and James Preston both defended superbly well when in action, but the star of the show was Kubix IT man of the match Colborne.
