CHINNOR were in emphatic form at the weekend, scoring eight tries in a 48-13 win over Bristol club Cleve.

With continuing fly half problems, Mark Chase on his return to the club, filled the Number 10 shirt for Chinnor and scored 18 points in the process.

Cleve took the lead with a penalty goal in the sixth minute, but Chinnor’s response was a try from Ed Vickers two minutes later.

In the 12th minute, scrum half Hopwood nipped through the centre of the defence to outstrip his pursuers and score. With Chase’s conversion, Chinnor went 12-3 ahead.

Chase then increased Chinnor’s lead to 19-3, converting his own try, and shortly before half-time, Goode burst through Cleve’s defence and touch down under the posts.

Chase’s converted, and grabbed another try early in the second half.

Corpe got the side’s sixth try, before Mowbray recorded number seven in the corner. A late try from Cleve saw the score at 43-13, before Hopwood, playing full back, danced through the defence to score Chinnor’s ninth try.

It was a good performance against a struggling side who showed flashes of inspiration.
