Walcot Colts win big on the road at Bradford on Avon
Dorset & Wilts Colts Merit League Fixture: Bradford on Avon Colts 10 – 27 Walcot Colts
Walcot secured an impressive bonus point win in a ferocious contest at Bradford last weekend.
The start of the game saw both packs battling for domination, with the bigger Bradford pack slightly edging the early exchanges.
However the visitor’s pack managed to force parity and establish field position, which provided Walcot fly half Jamie Hall with the platform to open the scoring with a smart try, scored by forcing his way through two tackles from a ruck just short of the host’s goal line.
Bradford struck back with a very well worked try for their winger and started to threaten Walcot’s position, just before the visitors edged the forward battle. Walcot hooker Charlie Stephenson was next on the score board when he snuck over for a try after a bullocking run from his loose head prop colleague Alex Phantis had set up a ruck on the visitor’s goal line.
Walcot scrum half Lewis Taylor-Smith added a further try after excellent hands from forwards and backs working him into space following a line out.
Two yellow cards for separate infringements reduced both sides to 14 men in the third quarter, before a barnstorming fourth quarter saw Walcot seal a bonus point win with two cracking tries. Winger Harvey Lofthouse scored the first after full back Spencer Hall deftly played his colleague into space with a clever delayed pass, whilst Fraser Russell forced his way through a gap before showing the visitor’s cover defence a clean pair of heels in a footrace the try line.
Bradford stuck at it and had the last word in this contest when their full back sprinted through a gap and around the cover, to score a try in the corner.
Jamie Hall added a conversion for Walcot, who can look forward with renewed enthusiasm to the revised D&W league format in the New Year.
