Canterbury forced to postpone game

Canterbury’s National 2 South game against Hinckley last Saturday was postponed after a playing member of the squad tested positive for Covid 19.   

Lock Royce Cadman received the results of the PCR test shortly before the team were due to leave for the match in Leicestershire. 

The medical authorities at the National Clubs Association ordered the postponement as the player had been in contact with other members of the squad at the previous Thursday’s training session. The game has been rescheduled for February 5th next year.


A young Pilgrims team bowed to the greater expereince of Park who wrapped up this Invicta League game with four second half tries.

A twelve point lead at half time gave Canterbury a platform as they by twelve points through tries from wings Jack Weaver and Max Halliday and a Dave Heads conversion. 

It could have been greater but a forward pass and a knock on saved the visitors before Dwayne Corcoran, in his first game of the season after recovering from injury, set up Weaver’s score. 

Halliday seized on a loose ball and raced through for the second touchdown. 

Park turned defence into attack for their first reply, an interception by their wingman ending in a length of the field score which was converted. 

The visitors then used pack pwer to to turn the game their way. Pllgrims still had their moments but were guilty of poor decisions and the last quarter belonged to Park who controlled territory and added three futher tries.
