It was always going to be a difficult trip to Chew for the first game of the season for Yatton II’s, but with good selection within the club, Yatton travelled with what was a strong team on paper.

Pre-match and you could feel there was a good vibe amongst the players, with the likes of Tom Patch and Robbie Riddicks looking in great shape after shedding a few pounds over the summer period, and the famous double duo of father/son combo of the Lewis Hynam/Neil Hynam and Billy Mackay/John Mackay. The players were looking for a strong start.

Yatton received the ball from kick off and the excitement and nerves of the first game of the season showed, with an instant knock on. This gave the pack an early chance to show what they could do, with Kerry Brimblecombe making his first senior competitive cap for Yatton at prop this was the first of many strong scrums, losing none of their own ball and taking two against the head.

However it didn’t take Chews heavy and strong runners to break through for the first try of the match, despite a pretty solid defence from Yatton. Soon after Chews second try came in, following a controversial forward pass, the ref waved on and awarded the try. Back chat and bickering within the team wasn’t helping the situation, this could be a long afternoon for Yatton..

Following the early hiccups and the chance of the game running away from them, Yatton managed to get hold of the ball and made Chew work for their win, with Charles Harrison and Gainer dictating the game of play, Robbie and Archie Witter were breaking lines and gaining ground, the pressure Chew were under showed as Gainer slotted penalty after penalty in quick succession to bring the score to 12-6.

Yatton now clearly had the momentum with them, until Charlie saw yellow for a Chew player running into him.. decisions were not in Yatton’s favour. The next ten would be a test of Yatton’s character and they stepped up, without conceding a point while a man down, however two late tries from Chew took the score at half time to 24-6, despite one of those being clearly held up.


Yatton pack had dominance for most of the afternoon. Sam Jarvis even stole 2 of chew's balls

After a dressing room pick me up from Stuart Lusted and Spills the second half was all Yatton. Very rarely did Chew even venture into Yatton’s half, and when they did they were swiftly cut down. Yatton’s scrums continued to give Charlie and Gainer a solid base to work from, using Nick Adams as a human wrecking ball which gave rise to quick hands and off loads, it was almost “All Black-esque”.

Even taking a further two yellow cards from the ref in the second half Yatton still managed to control and dictate the play. However, all credit to Chew, their defence was tenacious and time after time prevented Yatton from scoring. A somewhat killer instinct was lacking somewhere.
The final whistle blew and after a 0-0 second half it was Chew who finished on top, however their players knew they had been in a game. Despite the loss, there were huge positives to take from this fresh, keen and determined Yatton team. Clearly the lads were enjoying their rugby together again, onwards to next week where they take on Bristol Barbarians at home.
