Six-try Giggle inspires Malvern to big win over Southam

Malvern Editorial 29th Jan, 2018

MALVERN ran in 12 tries as they thrashed Southam 68-0 to keep up their Midlands Two West (South) title challenge.

The Spring Lane side dominated from the word go and scored from their first meaningful attack as Connor Giggle touched down.

Skipper Tom Hale then used his pace and power to score the second with director of rugby Rob Cook adding the extras.

As Southam struggled to get into the game, another Malvern steal allowed their pack to charge before Giggle was hand to score for Cook to convert.

An imperious Malvern could seemingly do no wrong as another wave of handling and running led to Giggle going over for his hat-trick try.

After winning a penalty a Southam scrum, Malvern took the tap and go with Giggle going over once more.

The non-stop onslaught continued as Niall Potter-Farrant crossed the whitewash before Giggle was on hand once again to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

Ieuan Mustow then notched up two tries with Ben King converting on as the hosts went into the break 51-0 ahead.

Although Malvern rang the changes during the interval, their ruthlessness never faded as the Spring Lane outfit worked the ball to Hale who skipped past two tacklers to run in under the posts, giving King an easy conversion.

Giggle then claimed his sixth try of the day as the hosts continued to pile on the points.

As the clock ran down there was still time for Adam Dixon to feed Hale to claim his hat-trick try to end proceedings.

Second-placed Malvern travel to Nuneaton Old Edwardians on Saturday looking to claim their fifth win on the bounce.
