Norwich 40 Harlow 0
Norwich 40 Harlow 0
Norwich ended their League season in fourth place, with a convincing win against Harlow who are now relegated.
The visitors tried to keep the ball in hand and ran the ball back at Norwich. From one of these moves, on halfway, Rob Micklethwaite intercepted a pass, leaving him with a clear run to the line to open Norwich’s account. Theo Elliott added the conversion.
Norwich’s next score came from their dominant scrum, after working their way upfield with a succession of penalties when Harlow were repeatedly penalised for not listening to what the referee was telling them.
From a 5 metre scrum Norwich drove Harlow over the line and Dave Micklethwaite, playing at 8, dropped on the ball, the kick was missed 12:0
Harlow played with grit and determination throughout and, following a poor handling of the restart ball, took advantage and pressured the Norwich line for the first time in the game but Norwich managed to scramble their defence and clear their lines.
Norwich worked their way to the Harlow 10 metre line when winger and Man of the Match, Adam Huggins came off his wing and cut a superb line through the centre of the Harlow defence and tore through to score.
The conversion took the score to 19:0. As half time loomed, Harlow, having been warned about their penalty count, lost one player to the bin for not releasing the tackled player. At the same time, Norwich lost Jonny Wheater to injury for the remainder of the game.
The objective for Norwich in the latter stages, was not to concede any points which they achieved despite Harlow breaking through, but a last ditch tackle by Rob Micklethwaite pulled the ball carrier down, short of the line and Norwich cleared. They maintained their record as the best defensive side in the League, by 38 points, once all the results were in.
Harlow lost a player to a red card for foul play just before the end of the game, as their frustration boiled over.
Many thanks to our mascots and ballboys/girls.
