CUP WINNERS 2018

Wellington 1st XV 45 Winscombe RFC 17 – 01.05.18 - SOMERSET VASE CUP FINAL

After being crowned League Champions last Saturday The R&Bs travelled to North Petherton RFC on Tuesday evening to
play Winscombe RFC in the final of Somerset Vase Competition. Winscombe play in a league above The R&Bs so this was going to be a good test on how far the team had improved throughout the season. The R&Bs made two changes from the side that took to the field on the Saturday, Danny Lee & Ryan Marke returned to the starting XV in place of Micky Norman & Josh Hancock who in turn moved to the bench.

Playing down the slope, with the elements in their favour and spurned on by a large travelling support The R&Bs went straight onto the offensive. Playing some excellent all round attacking rugby, coupled with an aggressive defence, The R&Bs blitzed their much larger opponents with one of the best 40 minutes of the season. Winscombe had no real answer to the skill & continuity on display from the R&Bs going on to concede 5 tries, 4 of which were converted, meaning The R&Bs went into half time leading 33-5.

With the elements now in their favour Winscombe may have thought it would be their turn to dominate the 2nd half in a similar fashion as The R&Bs had done in the 1st. However, it was not to be The R&Bs were not going to be denied. Winscombe did have a few chances but these were repulsed by the outstanding R&Bs defence. The R&Bs had numerous chances of their own and scored 2 further tries, one of which was converted to runout 45-17 winners.

The R&B try scorers were; Liam “Port” Phillips, Will “ The Vegan” Hinchcliffe, Danny “I’ve got a bad shoulder” Lee, Nev “can I have my scrum cap back” Pitman, Tyler “Bad Hamstring” Hart, Spanish George Hodgson & Paddy “The Captain” Jarman with Alex “I’ll have a Haze” Davey converting 5 of the tries.

An outstanding performance after a superb season. The whole squad got onto the field and all played their part in such a convincing team victory. Difficult to pick individuals out, however Nev Pitman was selected by SCRFU as the Man of the Match. A fantastic way to finish the season for the club.

Just a little matter of the tour to Majorca now………….celebrate in style lads in the knowledge you are League & Cup Double Winners.
