Cambridge defence not enough to contain Bishop's Stortford's backs

Cambridge were well beaten by a well drilled Bishop's Stortford side.

While for the majority of the match we showed why we have one of top 4 defences in the league, you don't win many matches through defence alone, and it is tough to hold out for 80 minutes against a back-line as sharp and pacey as Bishop's Stortford.

And so it proved with our opponents able to score a try each half after finding space by going through a number of phases that dragged an increasing number of Cambridge defenders into the breakdown. Cambridge on the other hand hardly looked like scoring a try and when opportunities opened up handling errors caused the large number of travelling supporters to leave disappointed.

We are now getting drawn closer to the relegation zone, and while our defence remains solid, we will need to rediscover our attacking edge to win a few matches and create some daylight between us and the lower teams.
