Bury St. Edmunds defeat Ruislip

London 1 North - Bury St Edmunds 52 Ruislip 5

A YOUNG Bury side, packed with local talent, ran in seven converted tries.

Jake Thurlow made his first team debut at open-side as too did Josh Borley playing on the left wing.

Will Martin landed a straightforward penalty to get the scoreboard ticking and went on to convert all seven and scored a try for himself.

Barry Frost scored the first try and almost immediately, Bury scored again. Borley was given space out wide and made good ground before passing inside to Tim Mann, who evaded two tacklers before allowing prop Mike Lagudi to dive over.

Scrum-half Dennis then spotted Frost all alone out wide and his long pass sent the full-back racing away. He found the supporting James Maclachlan who dived over in the corner.

Ruislip hit back to capitalise on some Bury hesitancy in attack, Trofa feeding Brayling to score.
