Cambridge Rugby Shield

MainSponsorsHillVolacCJ2

Cambridge were crowned National League 2 South champions after a convincing victory over Dorking by 52-14.

Celebration

An understandably nervy start saw Cambridge trail by 5-7 after the opening fifteen minutes, but, the league’s top try-scorer Albert Portsmouth soon settled them.

High tempo plays from the Cambridge forwards saw them progress into the Dorking 22. Stef Liebenberg recycled the ball quickly, and the ball made its way out to Portsmouth, who had a free run to the line.

Liebenberg added the next himself, after sniping over from the back of the ruck. From here, Dorking battled credibly for a side already relegated, but Cambridge were always in control of the contest and their own destiny.

Portsmouth and James Stokes started to put on an attacking display of how to run the right lines and to hit the ball at speed, and between them they broke the Dorking defensive line a number of times.

By halftime, the score was 31-14, and after Cambridge scored two quick tries after the break, the game and the championship was in the bag. With the score now 45-14, the game petered out somewhat, possibly as Cambridge just wanted to take time off the clock, with the title now agonisingly close. Plus, even with more possession now, the visitors just couldn’t break down the resolute Cambridge defence.

Fittingly though, Portsmouth scored the last try of the game, his third of the afternoon and his 31st and last of the season. As a mark of respect from his teammates, he was given the conversion also, and he struck that through the posts as well.  Continue reading here.
