Avonvale vs Calne



Calne travelled to Avonvale knowing that their hosts were having a good start to the season and had to start well to discourage their opponents. With a couple of players still on their way to the ground it was Avonvale who started stronger as they looked to shift the ball to their backs who looked dangerous with ball in hand.
It was not long before the home side scored the first try of the afternoon after they created an overlap to score in the corner. In the forwards, Calne’s heavier pack were dominant but this good platform was not being used to release the Calne Backs. Avonvale challenged well at the breakdown to quickly get the ball to their backs and it wasn’t long before they added to their score. However, in the second half Calne started to get into the game and a maul from a lineout and a pushover try from a scrum gave the visiting supporters something to cheer about. But it was the Avonvale backs who won the day as further scores kept Calne at bay. A late try from Calne’s winger Jay Watkin was a small consolation and the final whistle sounded to end a very frustrating afternoon. Calne Captain Tom Morten and coach Alan Wicks were very disappointed with the manner of the defeat and urged the players to respond decisively on Saturdays Vice presidents day against Bath Saracens.
