The future's bright - the future's Blood and Sand
This year's Exiles are a blend of youth and experience. Their 2014-15 record so far is 9 wins, 7 losses and 3 draws, most recent of which was yesterday's 22-22 draw against March Bears.
For the second week in a row Cambridge scored a try at the end of the 80 minutes to secure a bonus point win. This time the glory went to Corey Hircock, although a lot of credit must go to James Ayrton on his 50th appearance for the Blood and Sand.
It looked like it was going to be an easier afternoon after 25 minutes with Cambridge 3 tries to the good courtesy of Martin Wolfendale, Pete Kolokowski and G's Fresh man of the match Tom Ellis, but the Southend pack slowly worked them back into the match to put us on the brink at 19-19 as the clock showed 80 minutes.
