Nottingham Soundly Beaten by Welsh

Nottingham's troubled season came to an end with a heavy defeat at London Welsh.

The 64-12 scoreline says it all really, as the Exiles ran in ten tries in a rampant display at Old Deer Park.

By the time the home side were reduced to 13 men it was too late to make any difference, the Green and Whites were comfortably second best.

Although Nottingham had plenty of possession, they yet again insisted on kicking too much of it away, and winger Nick Scott made them pay for it with a first half hat-trick.

His first came in only the second minute and set the tone for the game, outside half Gordon Ross making it 7-nil with the conversion.

As the Green and Whites pressed for an equalising score an sweeping counter attack from Welsh saw Ross send in James Tincknell, before both sides were reduced to 14 men, Campese Ma'afu and Welsh's Nathan Trevett sent to the sin-bin for fighting.

Two more tries from Scott, sandwiched either side of one from Nathan Vella gave the home side a 31-point lead at the break along with a bonus point.

Nottingham never looked like reducing that deficit, but their cause was not helped by a yellow card for Matt Jarvis early in the second half for tackling player without the ball. In the time he was off the field Welsh scored 26 points!

Seb Stegmann ran in a brace, with Trevett, John Quill and Carl Kirwan also crossing.

Nottingham stuck at it though and worked a try for Alun Walker from a lineout.

With Welsh reduced to 14 men following yellow card for Hudson Tonga'uiha late in the game Nottingham threw everything into taking advantage.

It got worse for the home side when Alec Hepburn was then sent off for a dangerous tackle on Dan Montagu, but they still managed to restrict Nottingham to a single try, scored and converted by Jarvis.
