Weston Utd 50 Bristol Harlequins 12
By Chris heath
Weston continue to improve.
Weston Utd continued with their much improved post Christmas form with this comprehensive eight try defeat of relegation candidates Bristol Harlequins.
Weston opened the scoring in the sixth minute through lock Ross Chesher
who raced away from the halfway and beat the would be defenders to the line. Fly half Archie Tilsley
converted but within five minutes the Quinn's had closed the gap with a try of their own.
The visitors attacked the home line again soon after but full back and captain Chris Young
poached the ball and raced away from inside his own twenty metre area to much glee from the watching throng. Tilsley again converted.
Weston were then awarded a penalty try after applying pressure on visitors line before inside centre Richard Muskett
more or less walked over when a large gap appeared following another forward drive. Tilsley converting once again. Quinn's cut the lead just before half time with a well taken try which was converted.
The second half was once again a more stop start affair punctuated by some moments of brilliance.
Left wing Mike McCarthy
was on the end of a superb flowing move before being replaced by young colt Henry Cox
who announced his arrival with a brace of try of the season candidates.The first came when the ball went through several pairs of hands to put him away on a tremendous sixty metre run. The second was an almost identical build up followed by a run that started wide on the left but ended up with the young wing going over in the right hand corner after out sprinting and cutting past the defence. Tilsley converted the first of these and then rounded off the scoring when adding the extras to outside centre Cameron Maslen
who along with Muskett and Tilsley had created much of the space for the wingers to flourishing.
The forwards again worked very hard with hooker adam fisher
once again outstanding along with the returning Ash Russell
at lock and Jacob Cox
on the flank. Chesher and number eight Ben Cox
both put a shift in and with scrum once again dominant the plaudits should go to props Steve Donegan and the hard working George Bamsey
who was excellent both at set piece and around the park.
