Barnes 33, London Irish Wild Geese 14
After a Wild Geese try and touchline conversion, within the first 2 minutes and an aggressive first 10 minutes , the rest of the game can only be described as disappointing and a lost opportunity to start the season on a positive note.
There can be no doubting the attitude of the squad , but this will be an eye opener for the rest of the season and indicate , that the next several weeks training sessions will need increased intensity .
An interception try in the first few minutes of the second half , when the Geese were putting together attacking pressure , put Barnes in a dominant position, from which they gained confidence and eventually took control.
This Saturday sees our first home game of the campaign V Redingensians Rams , who finished in third place last season and will present a tough challenge.
