SOUTH­ERN COUN­TIES

ONE NORTH Bea­cons­field Walling­ford BEA­CONS­FIELD re­turned to win­ning ways with a com­pre­hen­sive de­mo­li­tion of Walling­ford to get their sea­son off the ground at Old Oak Meadow on Satur­day.

The hosts showed their in­tent from the start with Nick Tap­pin go­ing over in the right hand cor­ner after only two min­utes with the con­ver­sion kicked by Ross Richie.

Walling­ford came back strongly to re­duce the deficit with a penalty but Bea­cons­field coun­tered with one of their own in front of the posts that Richie eased over.

The for­wards then car­ried the ball into Walling­ford's 22 with Ja­son Cald­well get­ting on the score­sheet to the left of the posts with Richie again sup­ply­ing the con­ver­sion.

Andy Brody fol­lowed this by break­ing from the scrum on the left after a good push and went over giv­ing his team a 22-3 half-time lead.

Joel Bostock added his name to the score­sheet in the sec­ond half with Richie adding the ex­tras.

It was all Bea­cons­field now and another pow­er­ful break ended with the ball be­ing pushed out to the right where Brody claimed his sec­ond try. Walling­ford bat­tled hard and man­aged to get back on the score­board with a con­verted score, ut it was Bea­cons­field who had the last word, Chris Creak fi­nally go­ing over. Bea­cons­field travel to Alch­ester on Satur­day. In the same di­vi­sion, Drifters made it two from two with an 18-12 vic­tory over Royal Woot­ton Bas­sett and the Farn­ham Common side travel this week­end to Stow-on-the-Wold.

Mean­while, Che­sham went down to their sec­ond straight de­feat in the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier­ship as they lost 35-7 to Swin­don Col­lege Old Boys and they will be aim­ing for their first win at Abing­don this week­end. 39 10
