Frome RFC 2nd 43 - 0 Cricklade RFC 1st

The Frome RFC 2nd XV welcomed Cricklade RFC 1st to Gypsy Lane on Saturday...

On a warm afternoon Frome knew they needed nothing less than a bonus point win to keep the pressure on Calne RFC 1st whom they are 5 points behind.

Frome started well with some structured play and most of the possession keeping Cricklade on the back foot. The first try of the day came from good hands out to the backs putting winger Luke Stanley in space who ran through to within 5 meters of the try line and offloaded to Reggie who dove over to score, the conversion being missed. (5-0)

Frome were playing well, but numerous penalties for offside allowed Cricklade to pressurise the home line, some outstanding defensive work from the Frome powerhouse Owen Davies and Phil Clarke stopped any Cricklade threat. After some broken play with various knock ons Stevan Randall picked it up on the half way line and, with a trademark strong run, held off 4 tacklers to score under the posts, 12-0 Stanley converting.

Prop Kieran Storey had an excellent game today and produced Fromes 3rd try soon after, receiving the ball in the Frome half and braking 2 tackles, he outpaced the opposition fullback to score under the posts 19-0, Stanley adding the extras.

The final try of the half came through Scrum Half Jordan Harding who capitalised on a miss pass from his opposite number which went to ground, Harding kicked the ball through and collected to dive under the posts, Stanley again adding the extras. (26-0)

Half Time: Frome RFC 2nd 26 - 0 Cricklade RFC 1st

The second half started well for Frome with excellent ball retention and phases tiring the visitors, this allowed quick ball to get to Fly Half David Abrahams who distributed it out wide to Randall who scored from 10 meters. ,Stanley unable to add the extras. (31-0)

Various substitutes and injuries led to the second half being a more stop start affair and this had an effect on Fromes performance, but Randall made it a hat trick by scoring from another hard run, holding off many defenders in the process. (36-0)

The final try came through Fullback & young girl star Ben Eley who ran an excellent supporting line off of Randall to score under the posts, he followed up by converting his own try. (43-0)

Man of the match: Owen Davis

Final Score: Frome RFC 2nd 43 - 0 Cricklade RFC 1st

With 1 game to go Frome are guaranteed and well deserved 3rd place in the league table. The final match is next Saturday vs Swindon College Old Boys 2s (at home) who Frome lost to at the start of the season.
