Frome RFC 3rd 81 - 19 Castle Cary RFC 2nd

Frome 3rd team make it 3 wins from 3 games with convincing display....

Frome 3rd team make it 3 wins from 3 games with convincing display.

Frome started with the kick and showed early promise by retaining the ball, some good short passes found Captain Richard James who was able to run at Castle Cary’s defence. A good offload to Andrew Greenwood allowed him to feed the ball to the oncoming Dave Evans a few meters out – there was no stopping him from that distance and Frome take the early lead.

Frome’s desire and strong running set the tone for the day with Mark O’Shea’s good distribution from 10 allowing space for centres Richard James and Josh McGuinness to open up Castle Cary. Flying wingers Joel Whalley and Aaron Weatherall only added to Castle Cary’s problems with darting inside runs – compressing the play and forcing Cary back and allowing the forwards to again take control.

With debutante Full Back Pete White clearing up any overhead balls and confidently running the ball back at the visitors there was no let-up in the Frome Attack.

The homesides forwards dominated by pushing Castle Cary back on every scrum. Matt Jones, Dave Evans, Ben Carter, Connor Cochrane and Brendon Drewitt produced some fine tackles and rucking to regain possession throughout the game.

Matt Jones level of fitness allowed him to be a constant threat to Castle Cary, but credit to the team - wherever Matt went with the ball the support play was always present and dominant throughout.

Castle Cary’s opportunities came from a kick over the top and a single lapse in concentration –With all the Frome players disappointed in conceding they went back and rectified the situation by upping the tempo.

Sam Woodward’s great start to the season continued with him powering through the Castle Cary rucks and making several good runs from the back of the scrum.

Gareth Simmonds and Scott Hunter halted any attempt at attack from the scrum that Castle Cary made with decisive tackling and rucking.

Special mention to Frome’s Rob Paten and Chris Logan for agreeing to support the opposition and ensuring a fair game. Both players showed determination with tough tackles and some great individual runs with Rob Paten getting on the score sheet for Castle Cary.

Final Score: Frome RFC 3rd 80 - 21 Castle Cary RFC 2nd

Frome’s Man of the match was given to Scrum Half Andrew Greenwood, who for the third game running linked up the forwards tough tackling and defensive work with the speed and movement of the backs – His quick thinking and accuracy accounted for countless assists and a allowed Frome to play the majority of the game in Castle Cary’s half.
