Your News South Woodham Ferrers 35 - Wymondham 20

What a difference a week makes. After their capitulation at Basildon,

Woodham responded brilliantly to bounce back and win at the difficult

venue of Wymondham. Although the hosts opened the scoring with an early

penalty this was to be their only points of the half as Woodham's counter

attacking from deep paid dividends on a firm, wide pitch. Poor kicking from

Wymondham allowed a young Woodham team to play to their strengths.

Gateson,Dukelow and Duggan all scored excellent tries. All converted by

Kilbey at fly half. Wymondham may have had the edge in the scrum but they

could not cope with Woodham's fast running and offloading game. The game

would have been out of sight by half time if it was not for some last ditch

tackling and colt Kilbey had managed to convert his four penalty kicks.

Half time 3-21

After the break Wymondham changed tactics and started to play nine

man rugby. This style of play had instant reward and the hosts made good

yards, as Woodham were penalised at the breakdown. Wymondham scored

two well worked tries from driving mauls close to Woodham's line. 15-21.

Woodham made the game safe, after some brilliant offloading by the

teenage back row of Rawinsky and Bewick allowed the ball to be moved

across the line for Bull to score with plenty of numbers to spare. Kilbey

converted. 15-28. Kilbey moved to scrum half and replacement Brown came

on and had an immediate impact. From one of his breaks he released Gateson.

Woodham's top try scorer had no problem stepping the last defenders and

score under the posts. Kilbey converted. 15 - 35. Wymondham did respond

and with the last play of the game managed to score in the corner.

Final score 20-35.

A great win after last week. With five colts playing and the majority of the

team in their early twenty's there is plenty to build on. A special mention

must go to veteran hooker Dieter Parry who stepped into the tight head prop

position and did a sterling job.
