Ashford Barbarians RFC had their first run out of the season in a pre season friendly against Dover Sharks RFC III.

It was a challenging day for the BaaBaas, they were out muscled in the pack and breakdown, and resulted in throwing to many players to the breakdown area leaving the defensive line stretched.

There were spells of the game where the BaaBaas played simple effective rugby and they made ground and this resulted in tries, unfortunatley the pattern of the day was going one too many phases resulting in turnover ball.

Ultimately experience showed and Dover Sharks RFC III were deserving victors. The BaaBaas back 3 had the best of the plays in attack and defense. Some key tackles were made which would have resulted in a bigger defeat.

Man of the match went to both Mark Charlton and Bradley Penney.

The BaaBaas play at home to Thanet next week where they hope to learn from the mistakes and build on the positives from this game.
