SEP

Olney travelled away to Reading Abbey with the added confidence after two wins from two fixtures, though expected nothing more than a tough game of rugby from the home side.

It was the home side that took the early lead after Olney gifted them with a penalty within the twenty-two. Though Olney soon began to play some great phases of play and to the disappointment of the home side, Olney scored two tries in the first half. The first from Winger, James Hannah after an attacking lineout and the ball being spun wide, and the other from Fly Half, Mark Marwood who as a new player at Olney this Season seems to of settled in well within the squad.

The second half saw the home side dominate and repeatedly win turnover ball from rucks when Olney had possession, leaving Olney on the defence for some time. Though the Olney forwards managed to re-group and from a combined forward drive it was Prop, Phil Berry who scored another try for Olney. With one converted try and two converted penalties by Centre, James Hawken, Olney took the lead 20-23. Then when Flanker, John Robinson looked sure to score under the posts, he opted to pass and the ball was knocked on so the Olney try went begging. Though, the score remained at 20-23 and another victory for the Olney team.

Although there were a few changes amongst the team from the previous two weeks games, Olney’s squad seem to be playing well together and settling into some good running rugby.

The players can now look forward to a home fixture this coming Saturday, which is a Charity game raising funds for local charity ‘MK Snap’ and Olney RFC where players will be wearing a ‘One off shirt’ which they will purchase, and a further three will be auctioned off after the game which kicks off at 3pm against Swanage and Wareham, who have won two from three fixtures to date.
