Redruth 45 Tonbridge Juddians 11
TONBRIDGE JUDDIANS headed back to the south-west for a first visit to Redruth and Hell Fire Corner, a notorious part of their pitch. It proved as tough as their trip at Barnstaple last month.
Redruth had secured their four-try bonus point before half-time. It took the Reds four minutes to score as their elusive winger weaved through some poor defence to touch down in the corner.
TJs got on the scoreboard after a good period of pressure, Nathan Holmes slotting a penalty.
A Redruth penalty to the corner led to their lock forcing his way over the line for their second try.
The Reds kept up their dominance and earned a penalty try in the first of the TJ three yellow cards – lock Dave Irvine was the first to go.
Holmes managed a second penalty but the home side scored again when A J Cant scored his second try with another mazy run.
In the second half ruthless Redruth released their full-back to score in the corner.
Two more yellows for TJs saw Ryan Jackson and Finlay Coxon-Smith binned in quick succession and the TJ defence was fully stretched as a result.
Redruth unleashed a series of drives in Hell Fire Corner which ended with their seventh try.
TJs secured the last score as lock Luke Bellinger finished off a set of drives with a dive to the line.
TJs sit in 11th place in National Two South and now entertain third-placed Taunton Titans to The Slade on Saturday (December 16, kick-off 2pm).
