South London Storm 52 ? 14 West London Sharks
The Tradewind Recruitment South London Storm won the battle of the undefeated sides with a resounding victory over the West London Sharks Saturday.
Wests were missing two stars in Mark Barnes and Trevor Leota and while matching the Storm physically, had few answers to the Storm's ability to offload or their defence.
After a well contested first half, the Storm led 16-4 with some great defense holding out the Sharks while putting on 3 tries of their own. A devastating 20 minute assault to open the second half stunned the Sharks and blew the score out to 48-4, with South showing some magical attacking play. Wests scored 2 late consolation tries, but South London were outstanding on the day, winning 52-14.
Travers Bonney at prop was a powerhouse for Wests, playing the full 80 minutes and featuring numerous strong runs. It was impossible to single players out for Souths with every player in the backs and forwards at the top of their game, but player's vote went to half Dave Wilson.
