RUGBY UNION: Witney dominate in six-try victory
10:00am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Rugby
WITNEY powered to a 32-10 victory over South West 1 East basement boys Salisbury at Hailey Road.
Wing Chris Beasley created the opening try for prop Jamie Burke.
Beasley then produced a try-saving tackle and some darting breaks before flanker Carl Campbell joined a backs move for try No 2.
Centre Dave Hyde powered over for Witney, while Salisbury replied with a drop goal.
A converted try reduced the arrears further, before Witney’s superior fitness and strong bench paid dividends.
Fly half Matt Clarke’s kick set up try No 4 for wing Lewis Collins on his farewell appearance before heading to Australia.
Full back Henry Lamb drove over for centre Thom Murton to convert, with No 8 Joe Rowles bagging try No 6.
Chipping Norton edged out visiting Littlemore 17-16 in the BB&O Premier Division.
Littlemore led 10-7 at the break, with Kieran Phillips-Tebb scoring a solo try for Chippy, which Jamie Caswell converted.
Ben Davey went over from Steve Holland’s pass, but Littlemore led 16-10 thanks to two penalties.
Chippy sealed victory and climbed two places to fourth when Emile Pretorious was driven over.
