Chippenham put eight tries past Minety
4:04pm Sunday 16th September 2012 in Sport
Dorset & Wilts Div 1 North.
Chippenham II 44 Minety 0.
A STRONG Chippenham second team proved too fast and skilful for Minety.
For all that, Minety gave an excellent account of themselves, causing their hosts all sorts of problems in the tight.
Speedy and well-drilled, Chippenham scored whenever they had the slightest opportunity. Three tries made it 15-0 to the hosts at half-time, and a further five after the break completed their emphatic win.
Despite being outgunned, Minety’s entire 17-man squad played really well and the pack consistently proved a handful in the scrums.
The visitors’ continuity, ball retention and attacking play were excellent, as was their attitude throughout the game. Offered five opportunities for easy penalty goals, Minety opted to run the ball each time.
After the match, Minety coach Huw Jones pronounced himself proud of his team’s performance. “Chippenham deserved their 44 points, but Minety were worth many points of their own," he said.
