Cambridge have no answer as Hawks move towards top gear
HENLEY HAWKS showed their best form of the season when they soundly defeated Cambridge at Dry Leas on Saturday.
In doing so they scored five tries which earned them a bonus point which put them five points ahead of Taunton Titans, who went down to Bishop’s Stortford, at the top of Division 2 South.
The first 15 minutes saw a desultory start with neither side able to command worthwhile possession and there was little indication of what was to come.
The stalemate was broken when the visitors conceded a penalty in front of their posts which was meat and drink to the reliable place kicking ability of Hawks’ fly-half Will Robinson who put the hosts into a 3-0 lead.
The Hawks were able to get possession from the set scrums where they had the edge on Cambridge as well as the line-outs where the visitors were finding it difficult to throw the ball in straight at times.
