Match report by Clive Hall

YATTON TURN THE TABLES ON OLD REDS

won 64-24

Yatton lost the game away at Old Reds in late October, but this time, with home advantage, they were determined to make amends. Playing up the slope in the first half in near perfect conditions, Yatton got off to a flying start. Gathering the ball from the kick off deep in their own half, Yatton are determined to maintain possession and it is the incisiveNo.8 Dan Williams who slices through the Old Reds defence to link up with Ben Bowyer who continues the movement across the tryline. The conversion is missed, but Yatton had laid down a statement of what was to come. Ninety seconds had been played.
A few minutes later, Yatton's smaller pack outscrummaged Old Reds on the 5 metre line and its No8 Dan Williams who finds outside half Mitch Want on his shoulder, who scores his first try of the afternoon. The conversion is again missed, but Yatton are 10- nil up with as many minutes on the clock.
Old Reds respond by driving deep into Yatton territory, but stalwart defence by Yatton lead them to going offside, but the penalty is missed in front the posts. Subsequently, Old Reds are yellow carded for a high tackle and with the one player short, Yatton seize the initiative as Old Reds are penalised again. Yatton go for the corner and lineout, where from a driving maul, Dan Williams grounds the ball, and with the conversion added by Jack Edwards, Yatton have a healthy 17 point lead.
Old Reds respond and open their account with a line out in the bottom corner, and then a speculative kick that leads to a try, with the conversion missed.
Another high tackle, this time by a Yatton player, give Old Reds the extra player to press home their advanatage. Yatton are put under the sternest pressure and defend magnificently but concede a penalty for lying on the ball. Old Reds elect to scrum but the Yatton 8 hold firm. The scrum is reset on Yattons 5 metre line, but Old Reds infringe, a penalty is awarded, and there is a discernable sense of relief as Jack Edwards makes a safe touch to conclude the first half.
With a narrow but useful lead Yatton are determined to take advantage of the slope and secure that bonus point win. Sustained pressure by the Yatton 8 leads to another scrum and Dan Williams going over for his second try of the afternoon. The coversion is added by Jack Edwards, a bounus point was in the bag and at 24-5 a healthy lead is opening up.
Another Yatton attack by the pack, spearheaded by the driving play of captain Ollie Hardwidge and the running of Mitch Want, force Old Reds to concede a penalty. Yatton elect to scrum, and with possession secured, it was the influencial Mitch Want who carved a line through the Old Reds defence to go under the post, with the conversion added.
Within minutes Mitch was to go over for another try as he tantalised Old Reds defence with some sublime sidesteping skills, Jack Edwards converted. At 38- 5, Yatton are in control. This is compounded when another flowing movement from deep by the Yatton pack and backs enables Ollie Hardwidge to crash over the line for another try, albeit unconverted.
Old Reds decide its time to up their game and respond with a converted try.
Yet again it is Mitch Want, the “talisman of the team”, and “Man of the Match” who from broken play, grounds the ball over the line for his fourth try of the afternnon
Old Reds grit their teeth and respond accordingly with a flowing movement along their three quarter line with a fine converted try. They complete their account with another unconverted try shortly afterwards.
Yatton conclude their account with two more converted tries: another by Dan Williams and then Liam Chambers going under the post with Jack Edawrds adding the extras.
