Tows Draw at Away but Romp at Home

18th September 2010

Matt Yuill was in the thick of the action as Towcester ground out a draw with Huntingdon in contrast to last week’s try fest.
His break early in the first half engineered a score from Dave Devlin-Jones, which Matt Yuill duefully converted to put Tows 7-0 ahead.
But sensing another romp, Towcester relaxed and their complacency allowed the heavyweight Huntingdon pack to take control of the scrum and line out.
A contentious decision disallowed three points for Matt Yuill and Huntingdon capitalised by pouncing on Towcester mistakes to score two converted tries.
Matt Yuill slotted a penalty just before half time and Towcester turned round 14-10 down as a consequence of their strangely stuttering performance.
Stag’s instrumental fly-half Whales replied after the break to stretch the lead, but Towcester now found their stride and the scrum began to dominate the flagging home pack.
Under pressure, Huntingdon’s frantic defence was penalised for repeated infringements and eventually suffered a yellow card for continued ill discipline.
Towcester made a tactical switch, swapping scrum half Dave Stocks with wing Austin Wheldon. The irrepressible Wheldon took the game to Huntingdon, running every ensuing penalty, which led to a try from Stocks wide out.
With five minutes left on the clock, Matt Yuill stepped up and coolly stroked the conversion to level the match.
