comes undone when injuries take their toll


The Firebirds started brightly, with some hard running and committed tackling and we went 19-0 up first half, tries coming from Otis Hernandez, Oli Smith and Matt Lefevre.

After the break Thetford rallied and started to make inroads., as the Firebirds energy levels fell, leading to some poor tacking which allowed their quicker players resulting in two quick tries. Injuries to several Firebirds meant reduced numbers and larger gaps for the victors backs to run through.

Special mention for veteran Richard Ross, Otis Hernandez and Ollie Smith and Matt Perry for 100% commitment in both defence and attack.
The www.osteostasis.com man of the match when to Adrien Marie-Francoise, who had a classy game at scrum half.
