Chinnor are totally unbeatable


CHINNOR maintained their unbeaten run as they beat Bridgwater and Albion by 71-12, scoring a total of 11 tries.

With just one change, Tom Gray in for the injured Ken Prinsloo, Chinnor got off to a flying start with a try from Pip Seymour in the fourth minute after a well-worked line-out move involving a late run from Henry Colver.



A few minutes later Alex Waddingham took the ball up and slipped in Sam Stoop who crashed over for a second.

In the 14th minute, a Bridgwater kick was fielded by Colver who threaded his way through the centre of the field to calmly touch down between the posts for Chinnor’s third try.

The next score came when Gray skinned his opponent to touch down in the corner. The increasingly influential Colver was again the supplier as Seymour scored his second try in the 18th minute. James Cathcart did the honours to give Chinnor a 33-0 lead with only 19 minutes played.

The Bridgwater fly-half snatched one back before Sam Stoop took the ball on the opposition 22 and bashed his way through the defence to score under the posts to make the score 40-7 at half-time.

After the break scrum-half Frank Jones scooted around the blind-side to score in the corner before Chinnor again exploited the blindside of the scrum for a swift interchange of passes which allowed Goode to dot down for Chinnor’s eighth try of the afternoon.

Cathcart increased the lead to 52-7. Bridgwater replied with another try of their own before Liam Gilbert scored for twice for Chinnor.

Finally Gray dazzled the spectators with a solo effort of his own to score his side’s 11th try to leave the final score 71-12.

Chinnor face Old Redcliffians at home on Saturday. Kick-off 2.30pm.
