Weston work hard work against a well organised Wivvy

Weston Super Mare RFC 55 – 24 Wiveliscombe Rugby Club

Match report by Kenny Braidwood

Playing the majority of the game one man short Weston had to put in a huge effort against a well-organised Wiveliscombe team. Weston’s hard work was rewarded with nine tries being shared between the backs and forwards.

Weston started on the front foot and were quickly on the score board. After only two minutes a well worked move from Kyron Pearce and Euan Braidwood saw them burst through the Wiveliscombe defense in tandem. With Braidwood on Pearce’s shoulder and calling for the ball Pearce judged the pass perfectly to set the lock free at pace fifteen meters from the line. Lewis Paterson scored the conversion.

Wiveliscombe replied with an extended period of pressure in the Weston 5 meter area only to be denied a score by a knock on. They quickly regained the ball when Weston lost their own scrum on the 10 meter line and scored with ease. Conversion missed.

Weston replied from the restart with Joseph Connolly and Euan Braidwood rushing the receiver and putting him under so much pressure that the ball was lost. Weston got control of the ball and after a number of phases got it out to Dom Marshall who scored the first of his five tries of the game. Lewis Paterson made the extras.

With Weston gaining control of the game they made good headway up the pitch with Euan Braidwood carrying the ball through the middle of the Wiveliscombe defense. His fellow lock David Clamp was on hand to pick up the loose ball and score after Wiveliscombe eventually caught up with Braidwood and got him to ground. Conversion missed.

Weston went down a man down before half time after Lewis Paterson was yellow carded for a dangerous tackle. With Weston without their full-back Wiveliscombe took the opportunity to bring themselves back into the game with two well taken tries in the last ten minutes of the half both of which came from Weston errors which gifted the opposition 12 points.

Half time Weston 19 – 17 Wiveliscombe

Weston dug deep and despite being a man short Weston dominated the second half which saw them cross the try line a further six times. The first of which was a well worked line out and maul which was pushed over the line with andrew turner getting the score. Jack Press missed the conversion.

Weston’s scrum was for on top for most of the game and from a scrum on the Wiveliscombe 5 meter line the ball was worked out to Dom Marshall who powered over the line. Conversion missed. Next to score was andrew turner who capped off his bustling try by taking and scoring the conversion.

The final three tries for Weston were all scored by Dom Marshall. Wiveliscombe struggled all morning to cope with the centers powerful and intelligent runs. Each of his tries came from very similar moves with the forwards dominating at the breakdown and getting the ball into good field position via Jack Press to set Marshall free to break the defensive line.

Wiveliscombe pulled back a try in between Marshall’s fourth and fifth tries but with only 12 minutes to play and having had a player yellow carded for a tip tackle any hope of them getting back into the game had gone.

Man of the match Billy Howells’s accomplished performance topped the bill in a fine team performance. Having been asked to stand in at number 8 his powerful ball carrying created numerous opportunities for Weston, while his set-piece work gave Weston a strong platform from which to attack and his tackling round the fringes was excellent. This was an impressive all-round display from Howells.
