WESTCLIFF'S miserable season continued with a 80-7 defeat against Esher.

Westcliff, who sit bottom of the National Two South table, have now been beaten in all 10 of their matches this term.

But first team manager Rick Compton felt Westcliff could have scored more points in their latest setback.

"The full-time score of 80-7 was perhaps a little harsh," said Compton.

"The visitors were convincing and worthy winners certainly, but with a little more luck Westcliff might have expected to both score a few more and concede a few less points.

"Nevertheless, the effort and commitment from the group remained as in previous weeks absolute a credit to themselves and the club."

In keeping with the season so far, Westcliff’s matchday squad was much changed from the previous week.

Through both necessity and design there were 11 changes in total.

But the alterations did not herald a change in fortune or form as they slipped to another heavy defeat.

The impressive visitors took control from the outset scoring seven first half tries six of which converted to lead 47-0 at the break.

Westcliff struck first after the restart Callum Lynch on hand to burrow over the line from short-range following a series of short-range drives and Greg Bannister converted.

Indeed, Westcliff continued to press enjoying more possession than had been the case in the first half and were only repelled by resolute defence.

These periods though were intermittent and in possession the visitors continued to show superior finishing power, scoring a further five tries, the last of which was on the final whistle. 

Westcliff: Bannister, Hogarth, O’Brien, Whiting, Ford, Sexton, Morrant, Brown, Lynch, Binneman, Dane, Anderson-Brown, Doyle, Hussey, Smith.

Replacements: Comber, Harvey, Barnett, Miller & Willsher
