Wheatley avenged their opening game drubbing to Aldermarston with a clinical and strong performance to finish the season in a comfortable fifth position, having won all but three games since Christmas.
Perfect conditions set the tone for Wheatley's characteristic fast game. However, despite 10 minutes in the visitors 22, Aldermarston struck first with a breakaway try against the run of play. This setback galvanised the Wheatley team who then went on to score 37 unanswered points.
Stephen Pollard struck first with two tries after individual bits of magic from Jason Wilson and Adam Ford
, the first try including literally running over the opposition winger, and the second from a deft chip and chase from Ford.
The half ended 10-5 to the hosts, who were determined to build on this and, in the second half, the flood gates opened. With the Wheatley set piece dominating scrums and earning a number of turnovers, the backs were free to run lines straight from the training field.

scored a simple move down the line, after coming on as a blood replacement for his brother. Russ Neal got himself on the scoreboard after some fine work at full back, before Jason Wilson - scoring his 21st try of theb barged through the entire Aldermarston backline after Pete Mitchell won another of the Aldermarston scrums. Jason Wilson kicked two conversions and a penalty.
Aldermarston got a consolation at the end of the game, but it was a significant win for Wheatley who were not playing league rugby last season and had put together a new team for this season.
