Crawley Under 15s Win The Battle of Hastings

Hastings 5 - 69 Crawley

This week saw Crawley under 15’s played in their second league match of the season, this time making the long trip to Hastings and Bexhill. After last week’s below par performance Crawley knew that they had a point to prove against a team that they lost to last season.
Crawley started well by absorbing some heavy pressure from Hastings in the first couple of minutes which gave Crawley a much needed early confidence boost. From this play the ball was turned over and found its way to John Freitas in the centres who managed to beat his man on the outside and sprint his way towards the try line before popping the ball inside to Cameron Hayward to dot down under the posts. The home side kicked off again and Crawley strung some phases together which drew in the home sides defenders which gave John the space out wide to run a try in. Another conversion by Cameron Hayward made the score 0-14 with 6 minutes gone.

Two quick successive tries seemed to spark a brief comeback from Hastings as they put pressure on the visitors defence and forced them to give away 2 penalties, Hastings capitalised on this pressure and managed to crash over to score their only points of the day, the conversion was missed. From the kick off Crawley took no time to get back into their stride with John Freitas breaking a few tackles before touching down, another conversion scored by Cameron Hayward. The next 10 minutes of the game proved a challenge for both teams as neither could find their way over the try line until a powerful carry from Declan Johnson Cole busted a hole in the defence to allow him to score out wide with Cameron slotting a brilliant conversion. Crawley then regained possession from the kick off and quickly found themselves back in the home teams half. A few carries from the forwards and some play out wide from the backs stretched the Hastings defence out wide which gave Number 8 Robert Higgins to dive over for the final try of the half. Half time score 5-33.


At halftime the message was clear to all the players that we just needed to keep the same intensity and game plan to keep piling pressure on the Hastings defence to extend the score line further and secure the win. Crawley started the second half slowly by making a few errors and looking quite flat and static. It wasn’t until slick hands from the backline and a sharp line from John allowed him to race away from all the defenders and complete his hat trick.

Hastings kicked off and Crawley quickly continued to pile on the pressure with the forwards making lots of strong carries up the field which eventually gave Robert Higgins the opportunity to score his second of the day. Crawley again attacked from the kick off and quickly found themselves in Hastings 22 due to great interplay between the forwards and backs. Some tough carries from the forward pack got Crawley within 5 metres of the try line and then the ball got out to Joe Boczek who managed to power himself over the line to score his first try in a Crawley shirt. 47 minutes 5-52.


The last 10 minutes saw Crawley test out some new combinations with Joe Boczek having his first opportunity at prop and Braydon returning to a familiar position of hooker. These changes that were made did little difference to Crawley’s dominance as three further tries from Declan, John and Robert meant the game finished with the final score ending 5-69.
