  • Report: Colts played with great determination and commitment to earn themselves a fully deserved away victory, with 14 players in the second half. The forwards’ high work rate provided a platform for  the backs who broke with belief and speed. Winger Rory Molthatlhedi and Fullback Josh Stafford in particular enjoying a successful partnership of understanding, combining several times to produce outstanding running rugby. The only negative for Eccles was a red card, believed to be for abusive language/disputing the authority of the referee, following an altercation between two players.  Colts hold 2nd place, 2 points behind league leaders with 4 games remaining.
