Daventry IIIs 30 v Old Leamingtonians IIIs 7

Daventry made it back to back wins with another impressive performance. Two tries by youngster Jake Sanderson and two for Dave Marks who returned from a 15 month absence were enough to give Daventry a deserved victory.

 

Daventry made it back to back wins with another impressive performance. Two tries by youngster Jake Sanderson and two for Dave Marks who returned from a 15 month absence were enough to give Daventry a deserved victory.
Sanderson showed good pace and finishing ability for both his early scores and owed a lot to hooker Dave Needham whose superb offload set up his second try.
With Daventry leading 15-7, fullback Marks who put in an accomplished performance was the recipient of a delightful piece of play from fly half Julian Bush who dummied before gliding through a gap to put the on-rushing Marks over.
In the pack Glenn Hollely, Richard Tuck and Pete Clarke were all outstanding in both attack and defence, while Sanderson and Marks were the pick of the backs.
Following a raft of substitutions at half time, Daventry lost some of their fluency but still managed to keep OL’s scoreless despite a ferocious onslaught from the home side. Substitutes Darran Holliman and Rien Sach were at the heart of a good defensive effort from the travelling Daventry team.
Daventry ended the game on a real high conjuring up a superb set piece move from the back of the scrum, with Holley picking up and charging down the blind side and using the scrum half as a dummy runner before drawing the fullback and passing onto to Marks to touch down for his second.
This was yet another spirited and committed effort from Reuben Law’s team, who get better week by week. Man of the Match went to the tiresome Glenn Hollely who put in a superb performance in the back-row.
Next week the IIIs are at home to Vipers IIII
