CHINNOR romped to victory scoring 10 tries and winning 67-17 against Old Redcliffians on Saturday.

The home side opened the scoring in the first minute when straight from the kick-off, Chinnor passed it neatly allowing Pip Seymour touching down.

With all the play in Old Reds half, the visitors were penalised in the 17th minute for offside. James Cathcart’s penalty goal increased the lead to 10-0. Two minutes later, another penalty saw Alex Waddingham take a quick tap penalty for Cathcart to feed Tom Gray who acceleratedaway to give Chinnor a 17-0 lead.

Minutes later Cathcart released Henry Colver to score Chinnor’s third and then Liam Gilbert burst off the back of a dominant scrum to touch down making the half-time score 27-0 to Chinnor.

The visitors started the second-half positively and three minutes in a smart move gave the visitors their first points.

A few minutes later good work by Andrew Smith and Gilbert led to Matthew Goode barrelled over for Chinnor’s fifth try and a score of 32-7.

In the 51st minute, Goode offloaded to the Waddingham who crashed over for his first try of the afternoon.

Chinnor were rampant and Tom Gray came off his wing to bisect the defence and feed Tom Mowbray to score Chinnor’s seventh try of the day.

Fighting for pride Old Redcliffians went over for an unconverted try but three minutes later Gilbert scored his second after good work from Andrew Smith. In the 71st minute, the visitors from Bristol exploited some weak Chinnor to take the score to 53-17.

Chinnor hit back with tries from Waddingham Stoop to make the final score 67-17.

Chinnor now travel to Cheltenham to face Old Patesians away as they look to continue their 100 per cent season.
