Thurrock 4ths 14 Writtle Wanders 2nds 15 RUGBY: THURROCK’S fourth string reached their sixth BL League Plate final in six years at the weekend - but in the end the game went to their rivals.
The first half was game of too and fro, with neither side gaining any sort of dominance, but it was to be Writtle who scored first, after a series of powerful drives.
This galvanised Thurrock, who made several sorties into the and only a last gasp tackle keeping out Craig Bruton on the wing.
However, Tees Barrie Magnuson scored with the extras provided by Ben White. Frazer Kidd then linked with Barrie Magnuson who found to Keith Bonner, who touched down to score under the posts. Thurrock turned round 14-7 up.
But the pressure came on Thurrock who gave away a penalty under the posts and then saw Tony Jackson go off with a dislocated shoulder. Writtle racked up more points before Damian Burns went off with a serious knee injury. Then Thurrock were sin binned and Writtle edged ahead to win 14-15.
