New to the league this season and having only played a small number of fixture, Newquay didn’t know what to expect from new-boys Poole Phenix when they payed a visit to the Dragon Centre. As it was, a strong european university based team similar to many others Newquay have faced, proved too strong.
With Poole happy to read the Newquay plays and quickly break them down, in most cases, it fell to individuals, Kevin W (3), Jurgan K (5), Adolf B (4), Eddie PH, Hauke M (1) and Ben P (3) to keep the Newquay scoreline moving.
Newquay worked hard throughout in defence but with multiple Poole back players, including England International John P, happy to run and shoot from 9m, it was hard to stop Pool from keeping there noses in front.
With a half time score of 5 -12 and a final score of 17-30, Newquay did manage to show improvements in the second half in Attack, a rare occasion for the team, and its this Newquay should focus on upon when reflecting on another challenging fixture.
