Leamington 12, Camp Hill 33

AFTER an incredible treble-winning season last year, Camp Hill start their league campaign tomorrow full of confidence.

AFTER an incredible treble-winning season last year, Camp Hill start their league campaign tomorrow full of confidence.

Cheltenham visit Haslucks Green Road in their Midlands Division Two (West) curtain-raiser on the back of a comfortable 33-12 victory at Leamington last week.

A tap penalty from scrum-half Marc Chetland set up left wing Rob Obeng-Manu who cut inside to score a try which Simon Edwards converted.

Just minutes later Camps increased their lead through flanker Darren Forder, with Edwards again adding the extras.

Although the hosts battled well, they found themselves further behind after Edwards fed outside centre Steve Leach who crashed over the line to make the score 19-0.

But Leamington got what they deserved when they intercepted a loose pass to record a converted try.

Some admirable close passing deep into the home side's territory then saw Chetland add his second try of the day and Edwards increased the scores.

And there was no letting up after half-time as Camps added to their tally with another converted touchdown from Chris Goddard.

In similar fashion to their first half score Camps' attack broke down through another interception with the home centre covering 75 metres to register a try but it proved to be only a consolation.
