Hoppers blown away on Heath

Seniors: First XV: 7th December 2019

Hampstead 52 5 Grasshoppers
Gs kicked off the match playing down the slope into the wind but found themselves trailing 14-0 after 10 minutes due to 2 converted Hampstead tries. Despite this Gs stayed positive, but in the following 15 minutes which was maybe the turning point of the match Gs lost skipper Callum McCormack, fellow forward Josh Harpur and scrum half Jack Jones to injuries, completely depleting Gs replacements. Things got worse after 30 minutes with 2 further injuries forcing Skipper Callum McCormack to return. Now with Gs with a less than 100% fit team Hampstead scored 2 further tries – 1 converted in the final 5 minutes of the half to lead 26-0. Hampstead kicked off the second half and were soon back on the scoreboard with a converted try after 45 minutes. Gs with heads still up came back with a try by James Kent – unconverted after 55 minutes. Hampstead however prevented any further Gs comeback scoring 3 further tries – 2 converted to close out the win 52-5.
