Hawks edge Bury in hard fought battle

Henley 27-20 Bury St. Edmunds

It was always going to be a close contest between two evenly matched sides. Bury started strongly and should have scored in the second minute, however a knock-on from scrum half Harry Anderson-Brown gave Henley a lucky reprieve. The visitors quickly got the ball back following a Henley error and took the lead with Anderson-Brown burrowing over to make amends for his earlier mistake. Henley battled back with Jake Albon crashing over following an excellent driving maul. George Jackson slotted the conversion to take the scores level.

Hawks produce performance of the season to topple Taunton

Henley produced their best performance of the season by some way to topple the league leaders and in turn take their unbeaten record start to the season. In front of a large partisan crowd Henley took to the field in determined fashion and were on the score sheet after only eight minutes when a searing break from Joe Butler saw him carve open the Titans defence and give an inside pass for Marcus Lowe to run hard for the line, Jackson converted well.
