Newbury 32  -  22  Marlborough

 

A bitter October afternoon at Monks Lane provided the setting for a superb game of rugby in the Wadworth 6X South West 1 East.  The cold wind and autumn drizzle only seemed to add to the excitement inside the ground, with the atmosphere energetic throughout.  Both sides had won all seven league games, with the Blues only ahead by a single bonus point, so something had to give and the crowd expected a very tight encounter.

Marlborough 36  -  21 Chippenham

 

Marlborough continued their excellent start to the season with a sixth win in a row and against another local rival, this time Chippenham.  The whole Club is enjoying their first ever time in Level Six and every week brings a new challenge and a Club that they've either never faced or not faced in a very long time.  As they go into each game, the squad know how much respect every team deserves and the physicality they bring, but are confident in the style of rugby they are trying to play.

Cricklade  0 - 69 Marlborough II

 

Marlborough II made it three bonus-points wins from three in D&W North 2, thanks partly to four tries from Callum Hunt against Cricklade RFC.  Once Callum scored after some clinical passing Marlborough never looked back.  New to the Club this season, Callum, was one of six try scorers on the day with Curtis Dawkins, Harry Williams, Tommy Elbow, Patrick Campbell and Louis Haismanall going over the try line.  Unfortunately, Cricklade’s strategy of kicking possession to Marlborough was ruthlessly converted to points.

Marlborough II  48 - 0  Devizes II

 

Marlborough II made it four bonus-points wins from four in the Wadworth 6X D&W 2 North In a typically charged match between two local Wiltshire sides.  Devizes were looking for their second league win and started the better out of the two.  Using organised forwards play to good effect, Marlborough  needed a powerful performance to overcome the initial pressure.  Of the eight tries scored Callum Hunt scored four witrh the others being taken by Louis Haisman, Nathan Morgan and Serupepeu Niubasaga at, who at 8, was dominant and he carried metre after metre all game, keeping the team going forward and linking well with the backs all afternoon. 


Devizes forwards play was effective for short periods, but when Marlborough’s defence forced them to make errors, Marlborough were  quick to take advantage, thus reflecting the final score line.

Callum has now scored a total of  eight tries in two games which is a fantastic achievement.  Viliame Waqanidrola tackling was awesome, maybe even a little intimidating to the opposition which helped win the match.

The boys have this Saturday off, the following Saturday they away to Frome.

Captain Jamie Pittams leaps high to secure line-out ballCaptain Jamie Pittams leaps high to secure line-out ball

Marlborough 21 - 12 Banbury 

 

Marlborough made it four wins from four to start their first ever season at level 6 and in terrible wet and windy conditions.  As most people know the weather can be bad on the Common and this was certainly one of those occasions.  The team like a fast and open running game, but this certainly was not what was faced on Saturday.  However, this season the team has certainly meant business and are excited and ready to meet all the challenges.
