A game of 4 quarters with Chippenham at our new ground St Edwards turned out to be a thorough and entertaining work out for everyone. Whilst the rustiness of what was the first game of the season was evident throughout, all players from both teams had ample game time and a chance to sample the new laws.
Each quarter of 20 mins played saw a squad rotation for both sides and the outcome was 3 won and 1 draw for the Pats.
Game 1 10-5
Game 2 0-0
Games 3 10-5
Game 4 15 - 5
Chippenham had some excellent patterns and pressurised The Pats on their own line several times, particularly prominent were their excellent 7 8 and 1 forwards. Thanks to Chippy for making the trip, we hope for a return fixture.
