Dunn feels hard done by in Henley defeat
LIONS chief David Dunn insisted the scoreline had done no justice to his team after Bournemouth suffered a 63-7 beating at Henley.
Dunn expressed his pride at Lions’ performance despite watching the Dorset outfit fall to a fifth consecutive defeat in National Two South.
The Chapel Gate director of rugby lauded his players but admitted the clinical finishing of league leaders Henley had made a telling difference.
A George Drake try was all Lions had to show for their efforts in Oxfordshire as the Hawks extended to seven wins their 100 per cent record.
Dunn told the Daily Echo: “People will look at the scoreline and think it was a real drubbing but the reality was that we were the better team for large periods of the game.
“The boys put in a tremendous performance and earned a standing ovation from the Henley crowd.
“Our back row was absolutely immense. Charlie Grace, Chris Hughes and Tommy Booth were immense and got through so much work.”
Lions: Pollard, Stewart, Connolly, Chislett, O’Brien, Drake, Hardcastle, Carrel, Manning, Firetto, Forrest, Seward, Hughes, Grace, Booth. Subs used: Featherstone, Spikings, Hart, Stevenson, Higgins.
