Chippenham flex their muscles
Chippenham overcome strong Keynsham team
On a crisp Sunday morning, Chippenham hosted Keynsham at Allington Fields. Chippenham started the game slowly, struggling to deal with the physicality Keynsham were showing in the contact area. Chippenham struggled to maintain possession and got turned over twice in promising situations. After a break in play for an injury Chippenham changed their mentality and were able to match Keynsham at ruck time, winning clean and quick ball for the dangerous backs to exploit. As the first half continued, the pace Chippenham were playing at was too much for Keynsham, with the dangerous Chippenham backs linking up with the forwards and scoring 6 tries. The second half was much of the same with the Chippenham forwards matching the power of Keynsham, whilst the backs were making yards every time they got the ball. Keynsham did score a well deserved try late in the second half but not before Chippenham had run in a further 7 of their own.
