This was the fifth place play off and we played the team who finished fifth in Pool Two.  Captained by Jake, this was one of the hardest fought matches we have ever played.  The opposition’s tactics were quite unsporting at times and you showed real guts and determination to rise above it.  You defended brilliantly and played as a real team.  Tries coming from Ashley and Luke.  Final Score:  Shoreham  2  :  Crowborough  1
