CAMBERLEY equalled their best defensive performance of the season — and this after rumours escalated that Ricky Scott has resigned as head coach.

The black and ambers were fronted on Saturday by former captains Dave Ball and Stewart Johnson — adding further spice to speculation that Scott walked out of the club on Thursday night following nine successive defeats.

The club are yet to confirm whether the rumours are true, but one thing is for sure, ex-assistant coach Ball and current Colts boss Johnson, rallied their troops to a far better display of guts and determination, although they couldn't quite prevent defeat number ten.

Camberley actually got their noses in front for the first time this season when Greg Way kicked a penalty goal on 16 minutes.

That was about it, however, as Blackheath took control with converted tries by Dave Fitzgerald and Matt Jarvis to lead 14-3 at half time. Jonathan Griffin kicked over the conversions.

Camberley's defence then enjoyed their best period of the season, keeping out the opposition for a full half an hour. That was until Griffin kicked over a penalty to round off the scoring.
