HENLEY HAWKS lost their proud home record on Saturday against Old Albanians, when they suffered defeat at Dry Leas for the first time since January 2012.

HENLEY HAWKS lost their proud home record on Saturday against Old Albanians, when they suffered defeat at Dry Leas for the first time since January 2012.

Had the game been decided by the amount of possession controlled by the two sides and territorial dominance the Hawks would have won comfortably. They had 65 per cent possession in the game most pronounced in two main phases. This was so in the first half when apart from two attacks that led to two tries, most of the game was played in the visitors? 22.

After going 17-0 down James Comben kicked a penalty before touching down late on and converting to earn his side a bonus point.
