Tigers breeze past Thurston
ELY Tigers made it three wins in-a-row on Saturday against league strugglers Thurston.
Despite sodden conditions forcing the referee to abandon the match shortly after the hour mark, Karl Hayler’s men had done enough to earn the win that keeps their hopes of a strong league placing alive.
The Tigers remain in sixth place in the Eastern Counties Division 1 with a clash against league leaders West Norfolk next up.
Tries on the day came from Dan Gardner and the prolific Joel Scott-Paul, who both picked up a brace while Matt Kelly also registered.
Jamie Russell collected two conversions to seal a comfortable win for Hayler’s charges.
