RUGBY UNION: Chippy get promotion booster
4:48pm Wednesday 28th March 2012 in Rugby
Chipping Norton maintained their promotion hopes with a 64-8 victory at Princes Risborough in the BB&O Premier Division.
Should Chippy claim maximum points from their remaining three matches, starting with Saturday’s home clash with Thatcham, they will finish in the top two.
Matt Dawson (3), Tom Hall (2), Neil Stannard, Richard Flather, Neil Penny, Kieren Phillips-Tebb and Barry Nutt scored tries, Hall converting seven.
Witney’s three-match winning run ended in a below-par 32-12 defeat at High Wycombe in South West 1 East.
Wycombe led 15-0 at half-time thanks to two tries, a conversion and a penalty.
Witney fell further behind to another penalty.
Good work by James Lamb and Henry Lamb set Lewis Collins free to touch down between the posts.
Henry Lamb converted, but Wycombe got a converted try.
No 8 Jez Hicks’s flick pass set up Witney’s second try for scrum half Gareth Campbell, but Wycombe still had time for another converted try.
