Wanderers Good Form Continues

The Wanderers continued their recent good form with a fine home win by 38 points to 19 against Walsall RFC.

Playing into the strong wind the Wanderers demonstrated good control by retaining possession rather than trying to kick for field position.

Strong surges from Jake Saddington, Chris Griffiths and man of the match, Dave Whiting ensured the Walsall defence was constantly on the alert.

The Wanderers were a threat but, Walsall's defence was solid.

The damn finally burst when Tom Dodge was put in space to score the opening try.

Further tries followed from Jake Saddington, Ben Rhodes and Ollie Meadows, Meadows converting two in difficult conditions.

Walsall responded with two well constructed tries of their own from driving line outs to leave the game evenly poised.

Walsall began the second half with far more determination than the Wanderers but, couldn't find a way through the Wanderers scramble defence, finally, a fine midfield tackle from Whiting gave the Wanderers the initiative and tries from Matt Marskell and Tom Saddington, converted by Meadows gave Walsall a mountain to climb.

Walsall responded to the challenge with a fine try and went in search of a bonus point fourth try, the Wanderers regrouped to deny Walsall in what had been a very good game.
