A hat-trick of intercepted tries from Jack Hayes helped Chinnor to a 33-12 victory over Redruth in National League Two South.
The home side’s first try came from a scything run through the Redruth defence by Sam Angell, whose neat pass found Ryan Long to scamper over on six minutes.
Then came the first of Hayes’ three tries as he intercepted a loose Redruth pass to touch down with Ed Keohane’s conversion putting Chinnor 12-0 ahead before Luke Collins drove over for the visitors’ first score.
But within minutes, Hayes again read the play and plucked out another Redruth pass to go over for a second time.
Redruth again came back as they reduced the lead to 19-12 at half-time with a converted try, but seven minutes into the second half, a quickly-taken tap penalty by Angell led to a try for Guido Camareri as Chinnor took a firm grip of the game in the second half.
Keohane’s extras put the hosts into a commanding 26-12 lead and the victory was then wrapped up by Hayes, who once again snatched the ball away from Redruth and ran across for a try from his own 22.
Chinnor are away to Shelford this weekend.
