Clinical Morganians hammer Wivey

MORGANIANS moved further up to fourth in the table after another fantastic win on Saturday.
They started slowly, conceding in the first two minutes to a try out wide. This, however, was the only success Wivey had all day; from this point on, both the Morgs forwards and backs dominated completely.
Will Hopkins closed the deficit after 20 minutes with a well converted penalty. Hopkins then put Morgs ahead at half time, with a try in the corner after some good work by Ben Winter on the wing.
The second half continued in much the same way, with Hopkins scoring a further two tries after more dominance by the Morgs pack.
Full-back Jay Brant also added to the scoring with a great solo effort, after intercepting the ball from the Wivey backs in his own half, and ran the rest of the pitch to score under the posts on his debut for the club.
Morgs closed the game out, and could have scored even more, but the final score was 31-5 leaving Morgs only four points off of second place.
