WSM Match report. Saturday 16th September

Newton Abbot 54 – Weston-super-Mare 5

Newton Abbot followed up their opening day 67-12 win at Bracknell by entertaining their home supporters to an eight try victory over Weston-super-Mare who arrived at Rackerhayes with an unbeaten 30 game record in the League to their name.
Weston were invincible in getting promotion from South West One West and started this campaign by drawing 21-all with Brixham and there were plenty of signs last Saturday to support that form.
The Somerset based side should probably have been 10-nil up early on, however a gilt-edged try scoring opportunity was denied by a forward pass before the usually reliable James Mackay pushed a penalty wide.
Thus it was down to Newton to get the scoreboard moving which they did with three tries in the space of eight exciting minutes.
A penalty kick at goal was turned down in favour of a punt to the corner, a decision that paid off as captain Dean Avery followed up behind the driven lineout for try number one.
Centre Kevin Dennis left the visiting defence flat footed as he slipped through to score near the posts for the second.
The next try came from scrum half Luke Kenny who finished off a sweeping move that saw the backs and forwards combine in a phase of play that started in the Newton “22”. Fly-half Rob Avery-Wright converted all three.
Weston were then hit by a classic counter-attack try; home left winger Max Snowdon, deep in his own half, caught a cross-kick from the visitors; the ball was quickly recycled enabling Avery-Wright to put in a cross-kick to right winger Kyle Browne who set off from just outside his “22”. Browne linked with centre Matt Jess who finished off with a corner try that Avery Wright converted from the touchline.
Newton were straight back into the attack; the restart resulted in a home scrum on their “22”. No. 8 Jarryd Harris and Browne exploited a wide blindside to send the latter on his way to the try line. Browne went desperately close to scoring but the ball was adjudged to have been held up, however from the ensuing five metre scrum, Harris finished what he had started with a try under the sticks. Again, Avery-Wright converted.
Weston clawed one back just before the break; a strong scrummage and quick hands paved the way for a corner try for winger Matt Watkins. Mackay’s conversion attempt rebounded back off a post to leave his side 35-5 adrift at the turn.
The visitors started the second half strongly, but they couldn’t force a score as Newton showed an effective defence to go alongside their already proven attacking prowess.
Having seen off the Weston threat, Newton extended away into an unassailable lead; a three-quarter move saw full back Cameron Fogden – who looked the part on his home League debut – go close before second rower Luke Mingo went over from a close-in ruck.
Fogden played a pivotal part in a smart bit of handling that set Dennis off on a run from deep; when the defenders closed in, he threaded a neat pass to Jess who went in for his second.
The last try deservedly went to Browne who had created a couple of the earlier ones. He looped around and through between his centres to score after taking a neat pass from Dennis. Avery-Wright converted two out of the three second half scores.
Victory puts the “All Whites” top of the table, on points difference, ahead of Dings Crusaders and Exmouth who also each have maximum points. Also unbeaten – but without bonus points for their wins – are Newbury Blues and Camborne which is where Newton continue their campaign on Saturday.
The Spartans provide the home action with a Devon Merit One match against Tiverton (KO 2.30). The Colts have a friendly at Launceston and the Ladies start their season on Sunday with a trip to Bideford.
