Under 15s

Chippenham U15s 43 –v- Gloucester Old Boys U15s 7

Chippenham’s Under 15s played their counter-parts from Gloucester Old Boys in a friendly on Sunday morning, playing in near perfect conditions – in complete contrast to conditions the day before.

They proved too strong for their opponents, comprehensively scoring 26 points in the first half and seventeen in the second.

Chippenham’s pack dominated throughout the entire match, denying Gloucester possession. Gloucester’s only score came from an interception from inside the Chippenham 22. A fine try with an equally fine conversion kick.

Chippenham’s tries came from Tom Dunn, who grabbed a brace, and one each for Ed Wilson, Tom Baldwin, Charlie Wiseman, Max Wilshire and Chris Wright.

Under 14s

Chipping Sodbury U14s 0 -v- Chippenham U14s 35

Chippenham’s Under 14s travelled to Chipping Sodbury to play in a friendly match, giving all their squad players the opportunity to play.

The game started well for Chippenham and despite losing the weight advantage in the scrum, they began to work well together as a team and it was apparent that tries would soon follow.

The first try came from Mike Allies, near the posts, in the first ten minutes of play. The conversion was unsuccessful, not helped by the strong wind that was blowing across the field.

The next try came from Nick Kidd in the top corner which was quickly followed by an outstanding run by Bas Parfitt as he scored another try for the visitors, in the same corner.

The final try of the first half cane from Joe Bodmin who scored just before the referee blew the half-time whistle. At the break, Chippenham had a comfortable 0-20 lead.

The excellent first half score allowed many of the players to be swopped for new players in the Chippenham squad, enabling all to gain some match practise.

The change of players made a big difference to the scrum and in this half, Chippenham were certainly a heavier weight of forwards. These changes allowed Ed Suttle to score early in the half, which was soon followed by Allies scoring his second try of the match.

As with the first half, the final try of the half and the match, came just before the final whistle. Austin Strong made a fine run to cross the line for the try.

An excellent win for Chippenham but a fine effort from both teams. But Chippenham proved to be the stronger side on the day.
