In the most entertaining game of the season so far and another nine tries, Stortford were pipped at the post as Cambridge turned around a half time deficit for the first time this season.
Cambridge started brightly with magician James Stokes opening gaps that weren't there to score first. But mistakes throughout the half let the sharp Stortford in 4 times with Joe Collingham scoring the only other try for the home side to make it 12-26 at the break. A Mike Gillick try immediately after the break gave Cambridge the belief they could win this one. Cambridge restricted Stortford to only two penalties in the second half while tries for Albert Portsmouth and Corey Hircock took the home side into the one point lead. But when Coleman stepped up for a relatively straightforward penalty to spoil the party, the left-hand post did its job, willed on by the boisterous crowd. Cambridge saw out the last 10 minutes with assured control and the party began.
James Stokes showed his class today and was the Greys of Ely Man of the Match.
Cambridge RUFC would like to wish our Members, Players, Sponsors and Supporters a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and we look forward to welcoming you back to Volac Park in 2015 for the second half of the Season
