Three wins in a row for Orihuela

WELL WORKED: Forwards combined well together

ITV ORIHUELA RFC travelled to Lorca for another tough away game looking to make it three wins on the trot.

The game started off with Orihuela on the front foot, determined to put their mark on the game.  But Lorca kept the basics right and their defence held firm for most of the time after Orihuela had two tries disallowed.

In the end some great work by the forwards sucked in the Lorca players then fed the backs, who used the overlap to send Alvaro over for the first try of the game.

Lorca are never a team to lie down and started taking the game to their opponents.  They scored a converted try of their own, going in at half time with the score 7-7.

In the second half Lorca took the lead with another try, but Orihuela hit back soon afterwards with the backs and forwards again working well together setting up Raffa to touch down in the corner.

Going into the last 10 minutes Orihuela broke out of their own 22 with some excellent backs work and Alvaro out ran the Lorca defence to score under the posts and again converted his own try.

Orihulela  pressed hard for the try bonus point, but the Lorca defence held firm with Orihuela running out winners 19-12.

ITV Orihuela RFC’s next game is away to Murcia XV on January 26.

Training is at the MiguelHernandezUniversity ground at 8.15pm on Tuesday and Thursday for the seniors and juveniles. The juniors start at 8.15 pm.
