Cents enjoy the best game of their season so far.

Cents bounced back from their defeat by RWB last week by beating their local neighbours in an enjoyable and entertaing match at the Stade de Bridge. Games between Cents and Swindon are always open and full of end to end running and this match was no different from past encounters. Cents were a different side from last weeks defeat at RWB, they looked as though they wanted to play and also cut out the mistakes plus they looked inventive with the ball in their hands.
Cents made three changes to the side that lost last week plus there was some positional changes as well and all these changes led to a better performance by the team. In a great first half performance Cents had secured a try bonus point by half time in building up a 35-0 lead and Swindon had no answer to the pace and power of the home side. Cents were better in every aspect of the match although Swindon never gave up and always looked to attack from every where and this made the match entertaining to watch.
Cents scored their first half tries through Pete Willetts,Rob Jones,Niall Gibbons,Ryan Townsend and Michael Mathers and Alex Cavaziel Cox converted all five tries.
In the second half Cents enjoyed the upper hand for much of the half although Swindon did score two well worked tries of the own in the final quarter, reward for all their efforts. Cents scored a further two tries of their own in the second half to complete their scoring and the tries were scored by Shay Morgan and Michael Mathers a second try. Cents scoring was completed by a further two conversions by Alex Cavaziel Cox..
All in all this was by far the best performance by Cents this season and went a long way to over come last weeks loss at RWB who themselves showed their victory over Cents was no fluke when they had a good victory away to Old Pats, not many teams beat Pats at home.Cents man of the match went to Shay Morgan at full back and the team next week play Windsor away and they would have to show the same commitment as today in order to come away with a victory.
