Eton Manor head coach Jamie Connors was pleased with victory over Luton in the London One North last weekend and for Harry Tustanowsky, who scored his first try for the club in the 17-14 success.

The Bedfordshire outfit made life tough for the league leaders, though, and gave them one of their toughest matches of the campaign.

Manor went ahead inside the opening few minutes through a penalty try and their coach admitted that probably made his side a little overconfident.

“The conditions made it hard for us to get backs on the ball, like we have been doing all season,” said Connors.

“We went over and got a penalty try in the first few minutes.

“In hindsight, that wasn’t the best thing because we might have thought it would be an easy day at the office then.

“Luton come back and they created a really good try to make it 7-7 and then got a really lucky try with the bounce.”

That put the visitors 7-14 ahead in the 30th minute but Tustanowsky replied shortly afterwards to make the points difference just two at the break.

He was a number of second team players drafted in by Connors for the Luton match due to the injuries they currently have.

“Harry has played four or five games for us this season,” added Connors.

“He has been in the seconds but hasn’t scored a try yet but he got his first on Saturday and that was really pleasing.”

Manor trailed for quite some time before Michael Eghan scored the decisive try midway through the second period.

Connors praised his winger, who was playing 13 at The New Wilderness, and the players that came into the team against Luton.

“It was 14-12 for a long time before we scored midway through the second half.

“Mike must have only touched the ball once but got a really good try.

“And some of the guys who have come in now have really put there hands up.”

Manor are without a fixture this weekend but they will be playing a second team game and will hope to record victory number 12 when they return to action against Letchworth Garden City on December 6.
