CHINNOR Colts captain George Blewitt scored the opening try in a nail-biting 11-10 National Colts Cup quarter-final win over Doncaster.

Chinnor’s outstanding defence forced Doncaster to kick, allowing Chinnor to counterattack.

The home backs were creative but despite line breaks aplenty they finished the half with eight points, William Millet having added a penalty kick.

Doncaster played a more forward orientated game in the second half, edging ahead with two unconverted tries. However, Chinnor’s replacement fly half George Grosse calmly kicked what proved to be a decisive penalty.

The semi-final will be against Bedford on Saturday April 7 at Bedford.

This means that Chinnor will be playing three key matches on Easter Saturday. The 1st team play Redingensians and the seconds will be defending the club in the Oxford County Cup against Henley at Oxford University.
