Old Colstonians 12

Cirencester 34

IN-FORM Cirencester made it three wins on the spin.

Storm Dennis certainly took hold, but it was Andy Deacon’s side who opened the scoring - Gareth Owen barging his way over. It was not to long before Ciren winger Eric Spink got onto a final pass of a great counter-attack racing in from halfway to score, with the extras being added by fly-half Will Lowe, 0-12.

The second part of the first-half saw the home side take control. Wave-after-wave of possession resulted in two tries, making the half-time score 12-12.

Ciren started the second with renewed intent, but their play was being undermined by the last scoring pass being inaccurate, which enabled the scrambled defence to get back into position.

Ciren did get some points through their influential fly-half Will Lowe who kicked a penalty. Lowe had his eye and produced some wonderful cross kicks turning the defence and rewarding his forwards with great field position.

Joe Chambers, Ciren man-of-the-match completed a dynamic display with a try. With territory gained from a fine positional kick and from a resulting lineout drive Owen went over showing great strength, for his second try.

It was fitting Ciren skipper Oliver Gibson scored the game’s last try, fielding the ball deep and side- stepping through defenders to score, with Lowe kicking the conversion.

Cirencester bagged 15 league points gained in three games and nearly a hundred points scored by the Whiteway team.
