Robinson helps kick side back to the top of league
HENLEY HAWKS returned to the top of the table as they made it five wins on the spin at Launceston, known as the Cornish All Blacks, on Saturday.
This was the Hawks’ first victory at the Cornish ground in 10 years. They achieved this but not without difficulty.
The visitors’ superior fitness brought the All Blacks to their knees in the last 10 minutes of the game, backed by the kicking form of fly-half Will Robinson who kicked eight out of nine attempts, seven of which were penalties.
Conditions for the game were good, overnight rain having been succeeded by sunshine and a cool breeze.
The Hawks played against this from the kick-off but enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges with Robinson putting them in front after two minutes.
