REDINGENSIANS Rams ended their three-match National Two South winless run with a convincing victory at lowly Broadstreet on Saturday, writes Cameron Temple.

However, after 25 minutes, the Rams eventually opened their account as their powerful pack drove for the line following a five-metre scrum, and they were awarded a penalty try to take the lead.

This seemed to open the floodgates for the away side as they added two more tries before half time, No. 8 Josh Collis going over before Ollie Cole deftly kicked the ball forward and Conor Corrigan latched onto it following a display of electric pace, leaving the Broadstreet defence in his dust as he took the ball over the line.

The Rams began the second half as they had left off in the first adding another try shortly after half time as Tom Vooght broke and cleverly popped the ball off to Craig Nightingale, who burst through his opposite number to stretch the ball over the line.

With the game looking like it was becoming beyond the reach of Broadstreet, the referee added to their woes as the home side received two yellow cards in quick succession.

Rams took immediate advantage of their extra men adding two more tries, both coming from five-metre scrums with Collis twice placing the ball over the line for his hat-trick.

Broadstreet enjoyed a late surge with two tries as the game was coming to an end, but ultimately this was only to be a consolation.

Head coach Seb Reynolds was delighted to return to the winner’s enclosure, admitting: “For the last couple of weeks we’ve not played as well as we would’ve liked, but if you learn from those experiences and play as well as we did against Broadstreet it’s excellent.

“We had some young players coming through from the University who did an outstanding job and I was really pleased with how they looked today.”

Redingensians Rams are on the road again on Saturday when they visit Old Redcliffians (2.30pm).
