Local clubs meet for league match

With Haywards Heath flying high in the league at present, Burgess hill took the short journey down the road to meet in a league fixture.

Heath set out early in the game and scored three unanswered tries which set the tone of the day. The tries came from unforced Burgess hill errors which Haywards Heath capitalised on.

Burgess Hill did not give in and a try was scored to Hill via their number eight, Michael Tredgett.

Hills set pieces looked a lot stronger than in recent matches, with Fergus Collins showing some good work in the lineout to take clean ball. Cam Stempt grafting hard up front this allowed windows of opportunity to the back line. Burgess Hill centres pushed hard in defence and caused a few issues for the Heath outfit, but ultimately the damage was already done.

The game ended 41-5 to Haywards Heath.
The game was a good, solid game and lots of positive things to work with.

Both first and second teams ran out on Saturday, which is a good sign....

Next week Seaford in the league.
