Redruth should have won 'more convincingly' - Watson

Brett Rule

Redruth secretary Roger Watson has said his side should have won "more convincingly" after the 15-9 win at Barnes in National Two South.

Peter Joyce's early try, along with a penalty try and a Brett Rule penalty, put Reds 15-3 up at half time.

Warren Gower's late penalty closed the gap but Reds held on for a fourth away win of the season.

"It really was a game that we should have won more convincingly than we did," Watson told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"It was an ugly win to be fair, but with the form that we've had on the road we'll take any win away from home," he added.

And Watson said that his side should have got a bonus point victory, in what was the side's first away win since December.

"The dominance that our forwards had [meant] we should have come away with five points today.

"There was some poor handling and some suspect kicking from hand.

"We were disjointed, even the forwards were trying to rush things and force things a little bit more."
