JAN

Last Saturday Yatton’s 1st XV had the edge they’ve badly needed thanks to returning players from injury, a rethink and new look line-up, after a dormant 6 weeks due to the festive season, waterlogged and frozen pitches.

Centre Mike Harris’s try and a conversion by George Osborne put Yatton ahead after the first five minutes. Osborne’s penalty from halfway increasing the lead ten minutes later.

Chosen Hill’s pressure resulted in a yellow card against the home defence, on their try line, and the visitors first points with a penalty at the end of the first quarter.

A follow up penalty by Osborne retrieved the difference on 30 minutes and a midfield break by No 7 Nick Spellissey ended with wing Glen Jones scoring a try in the corner shortly afterward.

Then Chosen’s pressure kept Yatton pinned within their 22 until the halftime whistle and the visitors upped the pressure further immediately after the break. But it was a Yatton clearance kick at 50 minutes and uncertainty in the traveller’s defence unsettled by the speed of follow up that gained the supporting No 10 Sam Osborne his first try, converted by his brother George.

With solid ball from Yatton’s runner up Man of the Match No8 Ian Spillar Harris finished off in the far corner and George Osborne collecting the extras.

But with ten minutes still to go and looking at certain defeat Chosen showed their gutsy spirit, conjuring up a crash try through their Prop Nick Selway out of ruck and maul ball.

However it was Osborne duo who claimed Yatton’s last try and conversion in injury time to finish off the home sides’ satisfactory afternoon.

This Saturday Yatton 1st XV travel away to Sidmouth to see if they can continue this form in an away league game.

The 2nds are at home to Old Reds as are the 3rd XV to Stothert & Pitt.

On Sunday Yatton’s Colts are Bristol Leaguing it. The u17s go to Cleeve and the U15s to Saracens. The U13s are due at home against Chew Valley while the Midis & Minis also entertain Frampton Cotterell at home.
