Canvey Island's winless streak continues
CANVEY Island’s winless streak continued with a 27-10 defeat at Wanstead.
Canvey opened the scoring when Jon Edwards kicked a penalty but Wanstead hit back with an unconverted try to lead 5-3.
Wanstead soon scored another try and added a penalty to lead 13-3 at half-time.
But the Islanders hit back on the hour mark when full-back Charlie Clarke scythed his way through the home-side’s defence to score a fine try which Edwards converted.
Canvey now trailed by only three points but a kick out of Canvey’s 22 then bounced just right for Wanstead to score a converted try.
And they then added another seven points with a push-over try and conversion right at the death.
Canvey coach Steve Murphy said: “We are playing some good rugby but I think it’s a confidence thing, But I know we are good enough to get our winning heads on"
