Beccles 13, Old Brentwoods 9

Beccles Bulls scraped past Old Brentwoods in a tense London 3NE contest.

They caught the visitors cold with solid driving play putting them into the opposition 22 immediately, leading to a Gavin Hewitt try after eight minutes.

Luke Wade added a penalty before a second Hewitt try following a break by second row Keith Johnstone gave Beccles a 13-0 lead after 26 minutes.

Old Brentwoods scored a penalty on the stroke of half-time and added two more penalties to bring themselves right back into the game in the second half.

The Bulls gave a series of penalties away for infringements at the breakdown which allowed the visitors to gain in confidence and press for what would have been a decisive try. Excellent defence, with man-of-the-match Robert Hall everywhere, held Brentwoods at bay and enabled Beccles to hang on for the win and consolidate sixth position in the table.
