Eastleigh 59 Bognor 0

Eastleigh had promotion and second spot in the league sewn up before their final game against Bognor but still won comfortably.

The home side were in their comfort zone throughout the game and ran in nine tries from as many different players – with Phil Baldwin nailing seven conversions.

Four tries came in the first half with Will Rigelsford dummying his way over to get the ball rolling.

Not long after Jack Berry found a gap in the defence before Adam Kidd powered his across the line and Rob Sutherland brought up the bonus point fourth try for a 28-0 half-time advantage.

Stu Mason continued the scoring when he touched down after the break and the best try of the day followed – Baldwin, Sam Prout, Pete Noonan, Kidd and Sutherland all playing their part before Will Todd added the final touch.

A training ground move led to Matt Blackman getting in on the act and captain Paul Fudio took his chance for the eighth.

Eastleigh even managed to go over in the final stages of the game with just 13 players on the field after a yellow card for Charlie Laing and several injuries, Noonan finishing off against the league’s basement club.

Eastleigh still have one more important first XV game to play – away to fierce rivals and neighbours Trojans in the final of the Gales HSB Hampshire Bowl at Stoneham Lane on April 22.

Trojans are also warming up for the exciting clash in positive fashion – they beat Teddington 35-31 at Stoneham Lane but limped over the line following a brilliant second half fightback by their opponents.

The home side were in control and leading 35-17 at the break after two tries from Matt Evenhand, one from second row Alex Williams, a sprint the length of the field by wing Elliott Culley to touch down and a try by flanker Greg Ward.

All five tries converted by Evenhand.

But the game changed completely on the restart and Trojans never bothered the scoreboard again – instead Teddington touched down within 30 seconds and not long after were trailing by just four points.

Good defence kept the Londoners from crossing again.
