Verwood reversed their recent run of disappointing form with a fine display from both forwards and backs running in a total of 11 tries against bottom of the table Stoneham for whom it is likely to be a long and tiresome season ahead judging by their performance. There is not doubt that Stoneham are missing their maverick scrum half Andy Stride.
The highlight of the afternoon was to see second row Darren Clarbull, with over 500 club games for Verwood, score his first try at home for his Club. Albeit a short range affair, nevertheless a try from 2 metres feels just as good as a 50 yarder.
