English down plucky Barbarians (again)

The English dirt tracker side recorded an eight-try-to-four, 57-31 victory over the SA Barbarians (North) in Potchefstroom last night, but as was the case in Kimberley the week before, the scoreline possibly doesn’t reflect how competitive the hosts were on the night.

South African-born fullback Nick Abendanon scored three tries in a first half that saw the lead see-saw up until around the 23rd minute, when the visitors finally got on top and managed to stay there, taking a 31-10 lead into the half time break. They were not to score again, though, for the a good 20 minutes, with the Barbarians dotting down twice in that period, both times courtesy of scrumhalf Shaun Venter.

With the local back in the game, the vocal crowd started to get excited and egg them on, but it was the introduction of reserve back Jonny May that proved telling for England; the Gloucester man scored twice, with Anthony Allan also getting one. The ref awarded a penalty try to England on the final hooter too, after Barbarians wing Deon Scholtz had scored a late consolation for the hosts.

Barbarians (31):
Tries: Joubert Englebrecht, Shaun Venter (2), Deon Scholtz. Conversions: JC Roos (4). Penalty: Roos

England (57):
Tries: Nick Abendanon (3), Ben Morgan, Jonny May (2), Anthony Allen, penalty try. Conversions: Charlie Hodgson (7). Penalty: Hodgson
