Luctonians 20 Preston Grasshoppers 20
A slightly different script this week as Hoppers came from behind to draw a fiercely contested game which could have gone either way right up to the final whistle.
It was very much a classic encounter of backs versus forwards and the slippery surface favoured the hosts’ experienced, heavyweight pack.
Director of Rugby, Gareth Dyer, summed it up: “Our forwards were very much on the back foot in the tight although we competed well in the loose. But we moved the ball well and competed for the full 80 minutes. Our discipline could have been better, especially when under pressure in the first quarter, and it is something we need to work on.”
