A&C’s spectacular show
AMERSHAM & CHILTERN
NATIONAL THREE Amersham & Chiltern Bury St Edmunds AMERSHAM & Chiltern produced one of their most spectacular displays of running rugby in the first half on Saturday, scoring four outstanding tries to ensure a valuable bonus point – and ultimately victory.
Wth eight minutes gone, Tom Blackburn drove up the centre and the ball was moved right and swiftly back inside to find skipper Tom Grammenos, who scored next to the posts, Jack Kenyon converting.
After 25 minutes, superb handling and support play led to a break by Rhys Keith and a try converted by Kenyon. With injury time approaching, they attacked again in the visitor’s 22 and Kenyon jinked his way through to score by the posts before adding the extras,
From the restart, and now deep into injury time, the visitors tried to run the ball out of their own half but only succeeded in giving a simple interception pass to Dave John, who ran in virtually unopposed for the fourth and bonus point try, converted again by Kenyon.
The disruptions caused by injuries to Matt Allen and Keith saw a much more hesitant home side commence the second half, and the visitors swiftly grew in confidence and scored two tries from breaks through the centre in quick succession, both unconverted.
A yellow card for Day and no front row replacement meant that uncontested scrums were required for a 10-minute period, and the visitors capitalised on the numerical advantage, scoring a further try, but with numbers restored, Chiltern weathered the remaining time to deny the visitors a losing bonus point.
