Tring 51, Diss 0

PUBLISHED: 14:37 28 March 2011

Diss had another tough afternoon as their penultimate away match of the season in National LSE ended in a heavy defeat.

Meanwhile Tring looked to have secured their place in National rugby next season after a bonus point at Cow Lane on Saturday, which has taken them clear of the relegation zone.

A large crowd watched in perfect conditions as Tring ran a series of tries to which Diss had no answer.

The visitors, already relegated this season, had to withstand a torrid afternoon, but as ever heads never fell and Diss had a number of promising attacks through the forwards, and the centre partnership of S Hipwell and F Hall.

Diss were only denied by the consistently solid defence of the home team, who maintained their concentration to the final whistle.

With a number of players again injured or unavailable Carlton Gray and Alec Crayton stepped up fill the bench, Gray coming on for his first team debut in the second half.

Tring No 14 Liam Chennelis playing on the wing, had a personal tally of five tries, out of the eight Tring accumulated and was a clear man of the match.

While this was another poor result Director of Rugby David Hall is still confident in the players’ ability to perform next year in London North 1. In the meantime there are still two matches to play at National League level, the first being a home fixture with Gravesend on Saturday week.
