Strong Camp Hill clinch emphatic win

Despite an apparent mid-match lull in their dominance, Camp Hill came back in some style to confirm this sizeable victory.

Despite an apparent mid-match lull in their dominance, Camp Hill came back in some style to confirm this sizeable victory.

After scrum half Alex Richmond eased over a third minute penalty, Camps were soon back threatening the visitors’ line. From a scrum five metres out, fly half Jim Oliver collected from Richmond to zigzag his way over for his first score of the campaign.

Nuns did well to repulse Camps next threat but had no answer to a super break from Oliver who fed centre Simon Edwards for his season’s fifth try with Richmond again adding the extras.

Play switched to the home half as Carl Hutchings squeezed over in the corner to see a slightly improved half time scoreline of 22 - 5.

The Old Edwardians continued to enjoy better possession early in the second period and added another try through Sven Brown, converted by Ashley Kalnins.

This seemed to spur the hosts on to better things as Richmond kicked two further penalties either side of his conversion of a good score from flanker Chris Goddard.

One last effort from the visitors saw Hutchings go over for his second try of the match. From the re-start, the ball was caught by Rob Obeng-Manu who chipped over the Nuns’ defence before catching his own well-struck kick and sprinting over for an outstanding try.

A loose pass was intercepted by Oliver who recorded his second leaving Camps happy and well-deserved winners.
