Bingham 55 - 10 Mansfield Woodhouse
Bingham eased to a bonus-point win and gain a little revenge for the last game of last season to seal their first league victory of the season.
Jamie Graham went over on 5 minutes before Lee Fretwell and Ben Jones scored within 20 minutes with Matt Cumming adding 2 conversions and a penalty
Nick Tasker and Oscar Ciaurro effectively nullified any threat through the centre where Woodhouse gained success last time out.
Some great counter attacking from Jamie Graham with support from Lee Fretwell before Ben Packer backed up to score under the posts and get the try scoring the bonus point. Matt added the conversion
Woodhouse then forced an attacking lineout which was initially well defended but after several phases, the ball went wide for a score in the corner.
A missed penalty from Matt Cumming before Chris Spibey provided great support and probably sealed the result with Matt adding the conversion -
Half Time 36 - 5
A tighter 2nd half with Bingham playing into the wind and the sun and the occasional downpour making handling that much harder. From an attacking scrum, a chip to the corner from Matt Cumming and Oli Dodge managed to gather and score in the corner. Matt converted from the touchline hitting the crossbar before going over.
Jon Thomas (JT) got off the mark for the season with a typical pick up from the base before Woodhouse kicked for the corner after a period of pressure to collect the loose ball to score their 2nd, 48 - 10
Bingham gained territory and from a line out drove forward before Matt Cumming delayed the pass to Oscar Ciaurro who cut a lovely line straight through the middle to score under the posts. Matt added the final score 55 - 10
Great spirit and team work on show with 8 different try scorers but with still much to do as we travel next week to Deepings in the National Vase
