Sandbach 36 - Wilmslow 5

Sun 3 February 2013
After the weather causing problems in the previous round it was good to get the Cheshire Plate quarter final fixture played against Wilmslow at the first attempt. The game started with Wilmslow kicking deep into the Sandbach half the ball was secured and the Sandbach pack tucked it safely under their shirts and carried it deep back into the Wilmslow half. The game continued on a similar theme, due to the wet conditions it made it difficult for both teams to play a fast expansive game. The first try of the game came from good pressure by the Sandbach forwards and the ball been driven over the line by G Bordill who failed with the difficult conversation attempt. Soon after Ben the bull Gittins added a second try of the game from a good break by the backs who were able supported by the forwards which allowed Ben to power over. At 10 -0 Wilmslow then began to win more possession at the breakdown but tight Sandbach defending stopped any potential threat. Just before half time an excellent break by Whippet Ward creating space and when he needed support he found George Patch me up Owen in support who finished off the move in style. Half time score 15-0 The second half saw Wilmslow retain possession of the ball better and they started to put some good phases of play together, but Sandbach extended their lead from another good break by the backs. Burgess outpaced the Wilmslow defence only to be tackled a yard short of the line. Like a good openside, George Owen was on hand to recycle the ball to score under the posts. Dead eye found his kicking boots and converted. Wilmslow came back strongly again and this time they got a try which the deserved.  Sandbach finished the game the stronger of the 2 sides, and after a ruck deep in the Wilmslow 22 the “Beest” broke free and from his own grubber kick he got a very LUCKY bounce and scored in the corner. Dead eye Bordill converted from just inside the touchline. With the last play of the game Ben the “Bull” powered over for his second try of the game which was also converted. Final Score 36-5 not a true reflection of the game yes Sandbach were the better side but the game was closer than the score suggests.
