Datchworth 101 - 15 Grasshoppers

Seniors: First XV: 7th March 2020

Datchworth 101 15 Grasshoppers
Grasshoppers kicked off the match, but with only 14 players, and due to injuries played much of the second half with 12 players, a synopsis of the result is as follows. Datchworth ran in 14 converted tries and kicked 1 penalty, Grasshoppers replied with tries from skipper Callum McCormack – 2 and 1 from Dan Cussons. Despite a one-sided contest full credit and praise must go to all the Gs players who persevered to the end in pursuit of the 4th but elusive bonus point try.
