Gordana enjoyed a comfortable victory over Old Reds, a team just below them in the league.

Gordano 39 pts

Old Reds 17 pts

Gordano welcomed Old Reds to Caswell Lane with the intentions to open a gap themselves and the teams just below them in the league.

Gordano started well and were handed a simple three points, but it was a well-taken try by Noah Homles-McAdam in the fourth minute that got Gordano on the front foot.

The rest of the first half was a little more cagey with both teams not taking the opportunities that were in front of them, while the Old Reds closed the half with a penalty goal to make the score 8-3.

Once again Gordano started the half well and a quick tap penalty caused confusion in the visitors’ defence and went 60 metres to score under the posts.

Gordano extended their lead with another penalty from Hodg, but on the hour Old Reds showed their quality and scored a try of their own close the gap to 18-10.

In the last 10 minutes, Gordano stepped up a gear and looked to pull away. Two quick tries by Jack Thomas and Hodge gave Gordano the game and the bonus points.

Old Reds got a penalty try to close the gap, but replacement James Walker showed his freshness when he scored a great try to finish the game.

This was another great result for Gordano, picking up their eighth bonus point win of the season. The Mark’s Barbers man of the match was second row Ollie Critchley.
