Hornets Colts made a winning start to the season, with a 38-29 success over Burnham.
Hornets Colts started the season in fine form against Burnham, running out 38-29 winners.
Hornets started well and Bate collected Humphris’ perfect starter kick and Hornets were on the front foot. Great defence by a scrambling Burnham kept Hornets out, but a penalty right in front of goal was an easy kick for Humphris.
Hornets kept up the intensity and when Haynes collected the line-out, Solomon set off his backs and Turner stormed over, converted by Humphris.
Burnham replied with a penalty kick of their own before they worked a good try to draw level. Hornets reacted and a quick tap by Solomon found the rampaging Bate to burst over, converted by Humphris.

Hornets allowed plenty of replacements to give everyone some game time, which disrupted things a bit, but when Bate made another break, the ball spun along the line and Wall was strong enough to finish.
