DAVIDSON KICKS BORO TO WIN AGAINST LEAGUE LEADERS
This week saw Northampton Old Scouts travel a short distance down the road to Cut Throat Lane.
Boro were looking to turn over local Rivals Old Scouts and cut short their great start to the season so far.
However, this week your intrepid match reporter had to run touch (any volunteers for next week, George said he’ll buy you a pint!), so the note taking was left to the Director of Rugby. So here goes:
5 mins: 3v0 Vickers pen
12 mins: 3v5 Scouts try
18 mins: 6v5 Vickers pen
39 mins: 9v5 Vickers pen
40 mins: 9v12 Scouts try
12v12 Vickers pen
19v12 Gall try
22v12 Vickers pen
Wellingborough 22v12 Northampton Old Scouts
Pete Vickers 5 penalties, 1 cons (17 pts)
Steven Gall 1 try
From my position on the touch line Wellingborough carried on their great form against a very well drilled Old Scouts team. It wasn’t a game where turnovers were prevalent but one where discipline was needed and Boro showed that in spades when defending. Two brief lapses saw Boro concede tries but with Pete Vickers kicking any points available then Boro always had the win in sight. A trademark interception by Steven Gall saw Boro extend their lead to come away with a satisfying win.
This was a performance from 1 to 18 and showed how much Boro boys wanted this game and how much they are developing as a squad. This Saturday sees an in-form Oadby travel to Boro. As for the headline ask Kim Danns………………..
