Haynes breaks ankle in cup loss

HENLEY BULLS were forced to chase a 24-5 deficit in the semi-final of the Oxfordshire Cup as Oxford Harlequins' pack dominated much of the first half action, starving the Bulls of possession for large periods.

The only highlight for the Bulls was a try for Conor Corrigan who forced his way over at the corner.



Forward Tommy Haynes was forced to retire from the game early on with a broken ankle and slight concussion depriving the pack of some much needed experience.



The Bulls began to rally during the second half and again it was the wing pairing of Matt Dickens and Corrigan who brought the Bulls back into the game with a try each. This was Corriganâ??s 17th try in as many games for the Bulls this season.





The Quins engineered a further score as a result of their forward pack's ability to retain possession at the set piece against an inexperienced Bulls pack.
