Purley John Fisher secure five-point haul
PURLEY John Fisher secured another five-point haul at the weekend as they returned four tries to two amid victory over Old Wellingtonians.
With their opponents hovering nearby in the league table, it was a pleasing result which secured fifth spot for PJF.
It was a slow and insipid start though as OWs flew out of the blocks and notched the first score when their centre intercepted a pass and ran unopposed from halfway.
But fly-half Johan Malcolm hit back with a penalty for 7-3.

PJF's scrum began to impose themselves at this point, securing solid possession going forward and making it awkward for OWs to get any momentum as they constantly took the ball on the back foot.
Taking advantage of some sparse defence around a maul, Grundman broke free and gained considerable yardage before releasing his captain Dan Leidecker to run it under the posts.
This was followed in a matter of minutes by another Leidecker try – this time he took the ball at pace himself and jinked to the posts again.
Malcolm added both conversions and with a penalty from OWs' fly-half, the first 40 minutes concluded at 17-10 to PJF.
The home team flew out of the traps in the second half, securing good ball and running intelligently. The second row pairing of brothers Tom and Neil Leather secured good lineout ball and from one such phase, Malcolm drifted a cross field kick which bounced nicely for winger Tom Price to score.
From the restart the impressive man of the match Phil Jones thundered his way back to OWs' half; followed by a tremendous display of offloading as the ball passed though most of 15 pairs of hands and Malcolm meandered to score and then convert, securing PJF the bonus point.
OW's managed a consolation try from a line-out pick and drive, and Malcolm added another penalty as the game finished 32-17.
