WHILE Chinnor winger Ken Prinsloo continues to recover from his sickening double-broken leg, controversy still reigns over the result of the game in which he was injured.

The match at Rendingensians two weeks ago was called off after Prinsloo was hurt in a double tackle. At the time Chinnor were leading 17-5 and as the two sides awaited an ambulance it was suggested the game was finished on an adjoining pitch but the home officials refused, saying it was too small, despite the fact a previous Redingensians game had been played there.

The controversial decision to delay the match means Chinnor have been leapfrogged at the top of the table by Bournemouth, despite winning every single one of their games so far this season.

Chinnor have challenged the postponement in the hope that the game will not have to be replayed and the scoreline as it stood after 58 minutes, 17-5, will stand.

Chinnor play Bridgewater and Albion on January 7 and then take on Old Redcliffians on the 14, both games at home, as they attempt to continue their fine form and reclaim the league’s top spot.
