Gordano entertained BrigandZe from Belgian in the first senior international held at Caswell Lane.

Gordano Sharks 47 pts

BrigandZe (Belgium) 14 pts

GORDANO returned undefeated from a short tour of Cornwall recently, just in time to take on Belgian touring side BrigandZe.

The crowds turned out in their hundreds to see the first senior international held at Caswell Lane.

BrigandZe only formed four years ago, fielded a large pack, but had no answer to the speed of the Gordano backs, with full-back Ash Cottrell stealing the show with four tries.

Simon Wolf, Fred Young, Alex Underhill and Adam Hollis also touched down for the Sharks, with the visitors replying with two fine tries.

After the match, popular Irish folk band the Shenanigans played on the sun drenched balcony area, while the Belgian squad manned the barbecue and supplied a free feast for everyone.

Gordano have been invited to Belgium for a tour next year and will surely take up the offer from a fantastic group of guys.
