Supporters were treated to one of the best games of rugby at Cobden Hill for some time as Tabard and Old Streetonians served up a beauty in the autumn sunshine.
And in the end it was the hosts who ruled the roost with a superb defensive effort producing a fine 24-20 victory.
Jack Reilly’s boot proved decisive as he landed some stunning penalties but every player in the navy blue shirt put in a shift.
Reilly showed his intention by landing a penalty from 40m to open the scoring and the teams traded three points until Tabard got the first try of the day through Charlie Sandison to open up a 11-6 lead at half-time.
Old Street weren’t second for nothing and took the lead themselves after a converted score but that was short-lived as Reilly added another three from 40m out and Mark Salteras a try, again converted by the skipper.

A further penalty inside the final 10 minutes looked to have wrapped things up but a final converted try from Old Street brought a nervy end to a breathless game.
