The first try was to be the beginning of a very tough game for the Thatcham lot, with Bicester scoring in the first couple of minutes from a perfect kick and a lucky bounce, putting Thatcham underneath their own posts already. However, after the well struck conversion Thatcham came thundering back with a great set of forward work putting them within 5 metres of the line only for the ball to be turned over from some good rucking by Bicester. After the end to end first 10 minutes Thatcham began to lose momentum scoring one and conceding three more tries before the end of the half with a score of 29-7.
After a stern half time talk Thatcham burst out the blocks. After a really close ten minutes Bicester managed to break the Thatcham defence and score once again also scoring the conversion. 10 minutes later Thatcham had found they had conceded two more tries and only scored one. The score now being 48-14. Thatcham then had an unlucky bounce with Bicester pouncing and scoring for yet another try. A couple minutes later Thatcham scored again but missing the conversion. However, Bicester then in the last minutes scored again to finish the game making the score 57-19
