Ipswich show way to beat Thurrock

SUDBURY coach Mark Bolton would do well to have a word with his Ipswich Rugby club counterpart Aaron Brown as he prepares his side to face Thurrock tomorrow.

SUDBURY coach Mark Bolton would do well to have a word with his Ipswich Rugby club counterpart Aaron Brown as he prepares his side to face Thurrock tomorrow.

Ipswich should have beaten the league leaders last weekend but fell victim to four breakaway tries that ultimately cost Brown's men any chance of victory.

But Ipswich's game plan of taking the game to Thurrock up front certainly paid off and, with Sudbury set to face the Essex side, Bolton's second-placed side could close the gap at the top of the table on Saturday.

“It was a hard fought match but it was the one that got away from our point of view,” said Brown.

“We had the advantage up front and our backs looked livelier as well. We gave them four opportunities and they took them.

“They were just a lot more clinical than we were and we'll hopefully learn from that.”
