Tabard slump to heavy North Walsham defeat

Tabard slumped to a 41-5 defeat at North Walsham in London League One North.

The visitors found themselves caught flat footed as Walsham ran in two early tries, both scored from kicks ahead.

Tabard then got their act together defensively and Walsham had to fight to convert their possession into points. But the hosts got the upper hand in the final ten minutes of the half when Walsham again scored two further tries. This meant Tabard were 24-0 down at the break.

The second half saw Tabard get on top and they scored quickly. After a great break upfield by second row Paul Fagan, the ball was recycled and flanker Brad Webber went over in the corner for a deserved try.

Tabard then continued to put the pressure on to Walsham and both sets of spectators sensed a resurgence that threatened to pull the away side back into the game.

As the match moved into the final quarter the Tabard effort waned and Walsham were able to pick up three more tries to seal a comfortable victory.

Tabard will look to bounce back this weekend when they return home to face Colchester.
