New try scoring record for Abingdon this season!!

By

Abingdon beat their record of twelve tries in a game and scored 13 tries against Aldermaston at Lambrick Way.

It had been a long time coming before the men in Green and Gold got to get out on the pitch. After receiving a forfeit in Oxfordshire RFU Shield on 10 November from Gosford All Blacks and then a home walkover from Winslow in the league, the lads were ready to get out there!

The first try of the match came from a penalty try after the forwards dominated the scrum, continuously driving Aldermaston backwards from their 5m line.

Tries 2 & 3 came from Fullback Charlie Palmer and Centre Jamie Cummings. Charlie was given the perfect offload to dive over the line from Centre Harry Hale, after he'd broken Aldermaston's defensive line with Charlie in support. For Jamie Cummings try, Aldermaston kicked away possession and the ball landed with Wing Liam Dahle, who got the ball out through the back line, and then into Jamie Cummings hands who was the one to cross the try line. Flyhalf Chris Stables added the extra two for both tries and it was 21-0 to Abingdon.

Thr 4th and 5th tries, came from Number Eight Jamie Lochrie and Centre Harry Hale. Jamie placed the ball over the line after strategically keeping the ball in the scrum as the forwards pushed Aldermaston over their own try line. Centre Harry Hale's try came after Aldermaston's pentaly kick didn't make touch and landing in Flyhalf Chris Stables arms. Seeing a gap on the other wing, Chris sprinted to the other touchline and down the wing, side stepping Aldermaston's defence and quick pop to Harry who was in support, allowed for another 5 points. 31-0 Abingdon

The 6th and final try from the first half of the game, came from Flyhalf Chris Stables. Chris simply pirouetted through Aldermaston's defence and sprinted the final 40m to score under the posts. Fullback Charlie Palmer adds the extra to make it 38-0 to Abingdon at half time.


It wasn't until 15 minutes into the second half that Abingdon got more points on the board. Abingdon's 7th try came from Flanker Dale Cross. After winning their lineout, Abingdon's forwards were making ground and dominating at the rucks, the ball got out to the backs and then was passed through the hands to Flanker Dale Cross who crosses the line for the seventh time for Abingdon in this match. Fullback Charlie Palmer added the extra two to make it 45-0 to Abingdon.

The next three tries came from the backs, and was the first two of MOTM, Winger Steven Watson's hat-trick. Steve powerfully skimmed his way down the wing side stepping Aldermaston's defence to go under the posts; Charlie Palmer added the extra 2 making it 52-0 to Abingdon. Flyhalf Chris Stables scored his second and the 9th try of the game by breaking through Aldermaston's line running zigzag round the defensive back line and scoring under the posts; Charlie added the extra two making it 59-0 to Abingdon. Steve's second try was created by Flanker Dale Cross after he charged through defence and offloaded to Prop Sam Barrett who looked like he was going to make it all the way, but a quick pop to Steve secured the try. 64-0.

Second team Captain and second row Nic Smith scored Abingdon's eleventh try. After being heckled from the sideline for telling Winger Steve Watson to step in leaving the wing free for Smudge to run, he chased the ball down pitch missed the tackle on Aldermaston, but managed to scoop up the ball and break free to score over the line! 69-0 to Abingdon.

Steve's hat-trick try was Abingdon's 12th try to draw in line with their previous record. Flyhalf Chris Stables received DOTD after quickly taking the drop goal for the conversion right in front of the posts and missing! 74-0 to Abingdon.

Try number 13 - unlucky for some! Centre replacement Richard Shayler barged his way through the defensive line in Abingdon's half and managed to pin his ears back and sprint the remainder of the pitch to score the final try of the game on the 80th minute! Final score 79-0 to Abingdon!

Abingdon 1XV travel away to Berkshire Shire Hall next week for the return fixture. Thank you to Aldermaston for travelling over!
