MATCHDAY LIVE - Basingstoke RFC v Thurrock
This live event has finished
- Welcome to this afternoon's game at Down Grange between Basingstoke and Thurrock
'Stoke coach Will Croker said: "We are chuffed to win again and we deserved it.
"I think Gav's (Dampies) try set the tone for the match and our thoughts are with Jake Whitby who suffered a bad injury. He scored the first try and started the move for Gav to score the second.
"We were anger at half-time to be level as we felt we were keeping them in the game with our mistakes. We removed that after the break and that is the reason we won.
