Your News Newent 59 - Minchinhampton Rams 5

Newent started on the offensive, but Minch put their heavy pack to good use, driving through to allow Rich Jessup to cut through with some sniping runs. Minch began to build their attacks, driving the home side back but Newent defended well and forced the errors, and then with a nimble back division sliced through to score. There was some good defending, notably a thundering tackle by Chris Hearn, but Newent were in full flow and had built up a strong lead by half time.

In the second half the one way flow continued, and missed tackles were Minch’s undoing as the home side, with great support in numbers, found the gaps and quickly went through the half century. The last 10 minutes saw a transformation and Minch went on the offensive; veteran Adi Horrell charged through, and with good support from Mike Evans and Alan Halling Minch advance up the pitch with vigour. Chris Hearn came close in the left corner, but it was quick thinking from a tap penalty that give Minch some reward for their efforts, as Simon Whittemore danced just inside the sidelines to score in the right corner to give Minch a well deserved consolation try.
