Ross Win Bruising Encounter

By

Ross claim the bonus point win in first away win of the season

Ross claim the bonus point win in first away win of the season in what was a busing encounter in Stornoway.

After a positive start by the home side, which included a missed penalty attempt from Alan Farrell, it was Ross who started to dominate. In the first scrum of the match Ross won a penalty as the home scrum disintegrated under pressure, which they kicked deep into the Stornoway half. Stornoway had no answer to Ross’s powerful pack and with plenty front foot ball they conjured up three answered tries 2 from captain Ali Kennedy and the other being added by outside center Ross Mellis before half-time, with one being converted by John Mann.

Half time score 0 - 17

Stornoway cut down on the errors in the second half and managed to put some phases together in what was proving to be brusing and physical encounter . But is was Ross who were more then living unto the physicality of the home side

Stornoway were starting to causing the Ross defence some problems. Early pressure brought dividends when Alan Farrell’s delicate chip was re-gathered by Chris Adams for a try in the corner Strnoway added the extras . 7 -17

But Ross struck back with a straight forward penalty from another scrum offense with John Mann slotting to keep the score board ticking over. 7 -20

Stornoway continued to push forward but another mistake allowed Ross's maverick center Ross Mellis to break for his second of the game out for a converted try between the posts by John Mann. 7 - 27.

This try all but put the game out of sight, but credit to the home side as they continued to take the game to Ross and after a period of concerted pressure Angus Williams crashed over for another try. But it was too little too late though, as the referee blew for full time as Farrell’s conversion came back off the post. In the end Ross’s dominance in scrums and mauls proved the difference.

Final Score 12 - 27
