Shore 28-28 Joeys

A brilliant maul and some clutch goal kicking from scrumhalf Hugo Orpin helped Shore hold Joeys to their second draw in as many weeks, in a match the home side were unlucky not to win.

After a disappointing first round loss to Kings, Shore started quickly and scored from a well constructed driving maul inside 2 minutes to take a 7-0 lead.

Joeys hit back in the 14th minute when centre Ethan Tombs turned his defender inside out, then threw a lovely long ball to winger Caleb Murphy to score in the corner.
