A game of two halves

Out of it at half time but Chew Valley come back to snatch 2 bonus points and hold on to a playoff place

Old Richians 38 Chew Valley 31
31 3 down at half time thanks to some poor defending and handling errors any Chew Valley playoff aspirations looked dead and buried. Richians played high tempo rugby throughout with Terry Fanoloa at 10 pulling the strings and tries came regularly with No8 Tyler Morgan, second row Rob Lloyd, prop Nick Kibble finished off a front row passing exchange under the posts and fullback Mike Spencer Tonks wrapped up the bonus point on 33 minutes. Fanoloa. converted two.
Ben Worle Chew Valley outside centre kicked an early penalty and Fanoloa created a second for Morgan ghosting through a gap just before the break. The visiting back row with Ross Elliott at 8 playing a blinder dragged Chew back into the game, looking after the ball paid dividends with Ben Chase at second row scoring a try on 56 minutes
Richians stretched ahead shortly afterwards when outside half Dan Gatton had his teeth rattled with a Fanoloa text book tackle the loose ball fell to winger Sam Pooley for a try under the posts converted by the Samoan international.
On 60 minutes scrum. half Marcus Adams dummy over for a try and 8 minutes later winger Joe Webb scored. Adams collected his second with minutes left and.With Worle converting 4 an unlikely comeback was on and two bonus.points secured
.Chew Valley worked the ball upfield to the 5 metre line. In search of the try but with tired bodies strewn everywhere a penalty for the hosts saw the ball put into touch to end a thriller.

It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
