Having lost the away game to Shelford Hertford were looking to balance the books, Shelford were the the first to get points on the board with a penalty after seven minutes but a converted try after 14 minutes put Hertford in front. A brace of penalties brings the score to 10 - 6 at halftime with a controversial penalty against Hertford so something to talk about at halftime. The second half bring a slow scoring rate with fifty eight minutes passing before Hertford score another penalty but in the seventy ninth minute Paddy Kelly scores his second try which was unconverted to finish the match 18 - 6, books balanced. Hertford remain in fifth place but Shelford drop to seventh as Guernsey equal their points but pass them on points difference.

Next week Hertford remain at home to Gravesend RFC who were beaten in the away leg and are struggling to stay out of the bottom two having lost sixteen of their nineteen matches.
Could be a good one to watch!

Kickoff 3 pm.
