CHARGERS’ bid to gain revenge against Waterloo on Sunday ended up being a failed mission as the home side dealt Camps’ hopes of securing an end of season promotion play-off place a huge blow.

Having lost the home meeting against Waterloo earlier in the season, Camps travelled with a point to prove and with a detailed gameplan that they hoped would bring them success.

Waterloo proved a cut above the rest though, disrupting and capitalising on the slightest of Chargers’ errors, sucking in defenders and then shipping the ball out to the backs to work their magic.

Having gone down to 14 players early on due to a sin-binning, it was only a matter of time before Waterloo would reap the benefits off the extra player and they did so by going in under the posts for a converted try.

Chargers refused to panic though and turned a well flighted kick-off into an attacking run, only to be met by a strong home defence who snuffed out the opportunity.

Waterloo added another score before the break and continued their domination into the second half as they heaped the pressure on the visitors.

Camps’ consolation score came late on when following the introduction of fresh legs, Ruth Matta managed to cross the whitewash.
