Falvey shines in muddy derby

After last week’s high class performance Towcestrians came out on top this week away from home against local rivals Buzzard in a dour arm wrestle of a match, James Falvey was the star of the show scoring 14 of the Tows 19 points, including a try and three penalties

In slippy and testing conditions the scrummage became a lottery which the referee struggled to control, Penalties were exchanged before Tows showed some simple pressure play winning a penalty and from the lineout driving up the slope for Charlie Smith to score, it was only until the second half that the scoreboard ticked over again, a second James Falvey penalty opened the second half scoring for Tows who extended their lead to 3 – 11 but a yellow card for centre Ben Roe allowed Buzzard to exploit space for their right winger to score and bring them back to 6 – 11, again penalties were exchanged before the Towcestrians backs finally opened up the Buzzard defence and Falvey scored in the corner unable to convert his own try, for a 11 – 19 scoreline, despite Tows piling the pressure the game ended in chaos on the Buzzard line with no further scores

With Salisbury also winning this week Tows are now 8 points clear at the top of the league with 3rd placed Witney the visitors to Greens Norton Road this coming Saturday looking to close the gap on the title contenders

Towcestrians 2nd XV travelled to Leicester Lions for a 26 -7 victory and a combined 3rd/4th XV lost at home against Winslow, The Colts collected a win against regular rivals, Southam, 10 - 15
