Worthing Raiders 22 Blackheath 66

Posted by

Ten tries, five in each half, saw Blackheath cruise to victory along the south coast in their final dress-rehearsal prior to the start of the new National League One season.

Leo Fielding crossed twice within the first quarter, sandwiching a further try from Rafael Dutta.

Jake Lloyd added a fourth, and Freddie Owen the fifth, and with Freddie Gabbitass striking four conversions, the visitors led 33-7 at the break, Worthing’s only try the result of an interception.

Lloyd, with his second, Elliot Simmons and Craig Dowsett continued the scoring after the stoppage, before the National League Two side rallied with three tries of their own, but Alex Pickersgill, and Dowsett again, rounded off a one-sided contest.

Blackheath’s National League One campaign begins next Saturday when they host highly-fancied Chinnor at Well Hall.

Kick-off is at 3.00 pm.
