Rams win­ning streak con­tin­ues

Wim­ble­don 13 Redin­gen­sians Rams 24

The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

REDIN­GEN­SIANS’ win­ning run keeps rolling on.

The Rams made heavy work of rock-bot­tom Wim­ble­don, but did come through to win 24-13 and record a fifth straight win to climb up to stay fourth in the ta­ble.

Wim­ble­don came into the game win­less from their open­ing nine fix­tures and they quickly fell be­hind again as Jor­dan Souter crossed the white­wash for the Rams.

Olly Poole quickly added a sec­ond and with Souter ac­cu­rate with the boot, the visi­tors led 14-0 in­side 10 min­utes.

Wim­ble­don pulled one back, but Redin­gen­sians would not let up, go­ing 19-5 ahead when cap­tain Rob­bie Sta­p­ley crashed over.

Rams con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate, but the hosts showed some de­fen­sive re­silience and hauled them­selves back into the con­test at 19-13 by half-time.

The sec­ond pe­riod proved to be a real scrap as Wim­ble­don pushed hard for an un­likely win.

Mis­takes were be­ing made on both sides in the nervy en­counter, but Redin­gen­sians fi­nally found a way through again with Ben Hen­der­son prof­it­ing from a pow­er­ful pack to seal the vic­tory.

Seb Reynolds’ men will look to make it six wins on the spin when they host Re­druth on Satur­day

(2pm).

CROWTHORNE re­turn to ac­tion this Satur­day, host­ing Hunger­ford.

The Crows have made a night­mare start to life in Berks, Bucks and Oxon Premier, sit­ting bot­tom of the ta­ble on mi­nus eight points.
