Walcot II 44-24 Yatton II

By

14 man Yatton put in solid performance

Yatton headed to Bath to play Walcot looking to kick on from heir narrow loss to Midsomer Norton the week before. Knowing full well an performance like last week would secure their first win of the season. With the temperature a freezing 4 degrees and snow and wind coming from every direction, Yatton's young side added the energy to the afternoon.

Due to lack of numbers Yatton had just the 1 winger but still looked to exploit the wide channels. Both Joe Shepard and debutant Cam Polledri often finding good ground in those areas.

A break from their own 22 from Joe Shepard and good patience saw Billy Mackay cross for Yatton first try of the afternoon with only a couple of minutes on the clock. Converted in front of the posts by Charlie Harrison.

The experience front row of Gav Clifford, Jason Clarke & Stu Hill saw the Walcot pack constantly on the back foot. However after a back pedalling at a rate the Walcot backs made use of their extra man in the backs breaking out wide. A Chris Clinton cover tackle stopped the home side 5 meters out. Before Walcot could gain any more momentum, Dave Hepworth stopped the attack with what was deemed a deliberate knock on resulting in a yellow card for him.

Walcot however made no use of their extra man & Yatton only added to their tallest in this period as Chris Quinn fought his way over also converted and 20 minutes in Yatton let 14-0.

This wasn't to last as Walcot used their man advantage to get a score for themselves out wide. Before a solid Yatton defence forced a sloppy pass for scrum half Charlie Harrison to pounce on over the line. With halftime approaching it looked like Yatton would have a 5-19 lead but Walcot gave themselves a life line bundling over to take the score to 10-19.

In the second half injuries to Charlie Harrison and Joe Shepard saw Yatton further reduced and gaps opening up. Now struggling to hold out Walcot Yatton let in 2 more tries to go 22-19 down with 25 to play, the first time they hadn't been leading.

Cam Polledri scored a brilliant solo effort from his own 22 leaving defenders in his wake to secure Yatton bonus point. This capped of a outstanding debut of the young center also seeing him earn man of the match.

Further injuries saw Yatton finish with 11 players and Walcot score a brace. Final score Walcot 44-24 Yatton. Although they will take plenty of heart from this now seeing they can compete and put in a performance. They will be ready to go on Saturday when local neighbors Hornets come to north end park.
