Sussex v London B Team Report

Sussex B 24 -20 London B
This was a really disappointing result after a run of six consecutive wins and realistically ends any prospect of winning the Region for this year as Surrey had a resounding 30 v 14 win over Hampshire.The B team were missing four from the line up who had triumphed over Surrey in June and, with the A team and C team missing a number of players as well, we had to field something of a makeshift side.
London started brightly enough, racing into a 5 v 1 lead, before letting things slip to lose the opening set 5 v 6. Indeed everytime London looked like going on a winning run, either poor play or bad luck gave Sussex the lead again and we lost all four sets 5 v 6!
Until we are able to turn up to the South coast games with a full strength squad we are sure to struggle to achieve the results we need.
