James the Juggernaut, Bert the Bulldozer, Thomas the Traumatiser, Toots the Tank and Dan the Dreadnought fire the big shots.
Skipper Andy Boland was delighted as his Southport 2’s team kept their home form going and showed they have a bright future with the talent of youth coming through with five Colts playing and earning their stripes.
"The game started well with ‘big’ James Harper crashing over the white wash three times in the first half, unfortunately too young to buy the obligatory jug! Rob White kept forgetting he’s now a prop and not a winger he once was, but still had the footwork to finish off two great try’s, one in the first half and one in the last play of the game.
"In the second half ‘Lune struggled to cope with Southport’s sold scrum and went uncontested but this gave them a platform to play and run in some good try’s from their backs. Southport’s other boy mountain Tom Guest made some big runs and eventually crashed over for a well finished try. Callum Tootle also sold the defenders with his now customary dummy to score under the posts much to the delight of the large crowd. The most enjoyable try of the day was scored by ‘Desperate’ Dan Lovett who crashed through defenders to score a 30 meter try under the posts. It was great to see Kieran Payne start his first game for the2’s and also Lewis (the pest) Johnson impressing in the back row with his big hits."
