Millwall hit century mark in triumph

Millwall recorded their biggest win of the season as the Isle of Dogs club piled a century of points on rivals Loughton

Millwall recorded their biggest win of the season on Saturday as the Isle of Dogs club piled a century of points on rivals Loughton.

With promotion to Essex Rugby Division One within sight, Millwall obliterated their opponents in a 103-0 victory as wingers Dan Lawrence and Naz Mohammed scored four tries apiece and hulking centre James Reilly also bagged a hat-trick.

Millwall centre Tan Parsons paid tribute to his side's ruthless efficiency, which saw Loughton's recent run of good form ended in spectacular fashion.

"We were expecting it to be a lot closer because Loughton have had some good results in recent weeks, but they just didn't have much of an answer and we were ruthless enough to keep the pressure on and keep scoring tries until the final whistle," Parsons said.

"It seemed as though our backs scored pretty much every time they got the ball - we have to try and enjoy it because it's not often you get scores like this.

"The main thing in a game as one-sided as this is not to concede, and we managed that."

Millwall's pack set the tone for a dominant display on Saturday, winning several scrums against the head and stealing a number of Loughton's line-outs in the opening stages.

Loughton were facing a heavy deficit even before their fly-half left the field with a shin injury midway through the first half, but the departure of the No 10 saw the visitors abandon any remaining attacking ambitions.

Millwall duly exploited the lumbering Loughton defenders to score try after unanswered try as the club broke the century mark for the first time during the current campaign.

Millwall face fellow promotion contenders Old Cooperians on Saturday and Parsons is confident there will no let-up against the side currently second in the table behind the Isle of Dogs club.

"We want to win this league without losing and we will be looking to deal firmly with Old Coops this weekend," Parsons said.
