A the interval there was a worried feeling among the Hailey Road faithful as

Witney had dominated territorily but had failed to capitalise and were only 5

points to the good thanks to Charlie Bennett's try. As long as the visitors were

within touching distance, their belief would only grow. Henry Lambs strong

individual effort saw a huge sigh of relief and when Aaron Lambourne glided

over with his first touch of the ball, the two points were secured. Further

tries came from James Lamb, Joe Rowles and Gareth Campbell, Henry Lamb slotting

three conversions including a blinder from the touchline to convert his brothers


Various reports from the Oxford Mail (thanks Ed) to come.

On other days, missed chances may prove costly but the lads were fortunate on

this occasion. There were some good moments on the first half with Charlie

Bennett and Sam Collins both carrying well and the first two scrums being awsome

as Beaconsfield were "monstered" in the tight. However, despite the coaches

wishes, too many balls were kicked aimlessly away and when we did keep the ball

in hand, the support play was generally good. The boys were also bullied a bit

in the lose exchanges and the visitors were far more street wise on the deck.

Monksy was unlucky not to be awarded a penalty try and Louie was thwarted by

soem great cover from Beaconsfield no 8 as well lack of control from some set

scrums where we should have been able to capitalise on our dominance. That said,

we dominated territorily and after the long break and with a greasy ball, there

were always going to be mistakes. The second half saw some nice tries as the

visitors defence tired and a deserved win for the boys. Well done especially to

"Bucky" for a storming debut and some fine performances from Tim and Big Joe
