Rugby: Josh Novell Represents Sussex

Sussex Vs Essex 2012

On October 14th, Sussex played Essex in a county rugby game.

This match was very tight, often with one side scoring and then the other.

After some time, Sussex showed stronger fitness and converted their opportunities into points. 

With 10 minutes to go Sussex were leading Essex 25-17 and all pushed until the end.

Essex were proving hard to beat as they had a very physical and big team, but Sussex kept the ball in hand and crept further and further up the pitch.

This determination resulted in a very well worked try, scored in the corner, which was then converted.

The final score was 33-17 to Sussex.

A convincing win setting us up well for the season to come.
