27-10 Bonus point win against Chinnor in 1st league match of the season
By Noel O'Mahony
Superb performance today in our first league match of the season. Definitely a step up in intensity right from off, despite conceding with almost the first move of the match. We dominated the set pieces with both line out and scrum giving us a strong plat
Two biggest pluses were the performance of the whole squad of 22 players as we had a number of injuries and with no spare back subs we coped admirably with all the changes and also everything was a lot more player led. Will, Angus and Harry all took knocks, hopefully none too serious but Angus is getting his shoulder checked out, so fingers crossed there.
The match was played with a strong wind in the first half and we managed the elements well, kicking at the right times and keeping the ball in the second half into the gale.
There were so many notable performances it doesnt feel appropriate to single anyone out as everyone truly played their parts.
Tries were scored by Conor Hickman and Joe Harmen (two apiece) and Dan Peters from a no8 pick and go.
Well done to all and a great start to the league after a one point loss to Wasps in the Cup
