Horsham had previously beaten Hove 6-0 in their first game and so Shoreham knew they needed a performance.

This was a fantastic game of Rugby between two committed sides. Shoreham took control of the game with 2 brilliant tries but let themselves down with a phase of play where they forgot how to tackle resulting in Heathfield drawing the game at half time 2 – 2. Shoreham started the second half full of passion and soon took the lead again. In the last phase of play Heathfield went over in the corner to deny Shoreham a winning end to the tournament.

Shoreham deservedly finished in second place of the 5 teams
