Launceston boss Neil Bayliss unhappy with 'dull' Lydney defeat

Launceston lost the Cornish derby with Redruth by a single point last month

Launceston boss Neil Bayliss says he would have left his side's 20-19 defeat at Lydney early if he was a spectator.

The Cornish All Blacks lost their sixth match of the season, three of which have been by a single point.

"If I was a neutral supporter I'd have been gone after the first 50 minutes because it was that dull at times," Bayliss told BBC Radio Cornwall

"But I've got to pick some positives out of it and we showed some good character to come back at half-time."

Launceston trailed 20-9 at the break before 18-year-old full-back Billy Searle scored on his debut and Kyle Speare's try set up a nervous finish.

"They're not a very good Lydney side if I'm honest," Bayliss added.

"If we'd have played half the rugby we're capable of, we'd have put 20 points on them by half-time, but we can't keep losing these games so tightly.

"But it will happen one week and we will blow someone away."
