Bury romp to victory against Ruislip

London 1 North - Bury 60 Ruislip 3

BURY consolidated their place at the top of the table with another bonus point win.

However the score-line does not do justice to a Ruislip performance that deserved more than just one penalty.

Borley grabbed the opening score of the game, touching down after some good work by Will Martin.

The Ruislip scrum was creaking almost from the off and when Bury took a scrum against the head, a desperate defence was punished for coming in the side of a ruck. Martin converted to make it 8-0.

Having camped in the Ruislip 22, Bury earned themselves an attacking scrum 10 metres out. Bury remained patient to work the ball right for Wiggins to saunter over for 20-0.

At 27-0 down, Ruislip rolled up their sleeves and dominated for the remaining minutes of the half and Bury were forced back to their own 22.

But Ruislip could only muster a wayward penalty attempt for their efforts and to rub salt into the wounds, Bury scored a successful converted try with the last act of the half through Gouldie.

Ruislip’s young team began to pose some questions at the start of the second half but the home defence remained solid and all Ruislip could muster was a 33-yard penalty.

Bury began playing with some structure and after Krammer was thwarted, the ball was engineered out to Jo Davis who scored.

That try had a deflating effect on the visitors and replacement, Eggars, scored his now trademark try from 15 metres. Martin’s fine conversion from the touchline made it 46-3.

The final moments of the match were all Bury and they ruthlessly exploited a brave Ruislip team.

Matt Page scampered round the blind side for a try before the final score went to Chris Snelling.
