Match report by T.O.G. Corners Nick Sylvester

Roseland’s run of defeats against Veor continued in last Saturday’s lunchtime fixture in cold but dry conditions with a keen cross wind. Inevitably the “going” was heavy -rugby’s equivalent to The Cheltenham Festival earlier in the week – such that it was never likely to be good for running rugby.

On Saturday Roseland travelled to play fourth placed Veor. Roseland had been unfortunate enough to play the top 4 sides on consecutive weekends. However unperturbed by this Roseland travelled with confidence despite missing several regular starters.

Roseland Battle Valiantly

Veor 26 – Roseland 19

Roseland travelled down to third placed Veor on Saturday hoping to carry on with the good form that seen them beat Stithians the previous week.

Veor outmuscle Roseland

On a dry but breezy day Roseland entertained Veor in the Tribute Cornwall 1 league and were hoping to bounce back from last weeks disappointing defeat away to Helston.

Veor 58 – Roseland 0

Yet again, not as bad a performance as the score line suggests.

We started the game with just 14 men, including a rare cameo appearance from Chris Brown. 15 minutes in the missing players had found the ground and finally got changed. A couple of the Veor tries we came within inches of stopping in the first half, and it ended 34-0.
