Paul Fagan hat-trick fires Tabard to big victory

First published in Sport

A hat-trick of tries from Paul Fagan helped Tabard to their biggest win of the season as they defeated Grasshoppers 47-5.

Tabs started the game well but went behind as their opponents found space in the defence to cross the line.

However, that proved as good as it got as Tabard then took control, with Fagan going over for the first time. Stand-off Jack Reilly converted.

Prop Wilf Lake then touched down following a forward rumble and two Reilly penalties took the half-time score to 20-5.

After the turnaround, Tabard exerted most of the pressure but Grasshoppers defended well.

However, Tabs were in the ascendancy and Lake picked up his second try before Reilly himself scored and converted a try.

Fagan then crossed the line once again after a continuous Tabard attack and followed it minutes later with his hat-trick score.

In the dying moments, Cam O’Connor went over after centre Gerry Arasa made the initial yards to complete Tabard’s scoresheet and give them a fine win.
