Cornish All Blacks climbed off the foot of the League One table with a well deserved victory over fellow strugglers Pertemps Bees. Although it ended up three tries a piece, the All Blacks converted each of theirs and added a Jon Fabian penalty to ensure the win and deny the Bees a losing bonus point.
Although Matt Jess scored a couple of tries, my man of the match was hooker Neil Clarke who made ground on every single carry.
Sweetest moment of the day was seeing the losing team in Tescos just now buying beer for the way home. They managed to pick a (young female) cashier who just happened to be a Lanson fan and who gently rubbed it in.
Oh, and I managed to get myself ticked off by the ref for questioning a decision by a touch judge. Whoops.
So the All Blacks are still undefeated in 2008, no longer at the bottom of the league and have previous victims London Welsh away next week.
