King's overturn half-time deficit to record bonus point win against Lancers


Running hard and moving forward won the game. Apparently.

King's turned up for their first home game of the new season hoping to build on last week's important win away at New Ash Green.

However Lancers had clearly come to play and a jittery first half saw King's go into the break trailing 7-17.

A few choice words at half-time saw the King's pack come out with renewed purpose and the backs starting to gel impressively.

It was one-way traffic for a while with tries from Nick Oakley, Jack Hardie and captain Harry Clark taking King's into a 26-17 lead.

Lancers rallied and scored an unconverted try only for King's to score two more from Harry and James Read. With an extra penalty kicked by Harry, King's took a 39-22 lead with eight minutes left. To their credit, Southwark kept going and scored a late consolation try, with the game ending 39-27.

A great start to the season from King's which needs to be build on from here.
