Entertaining win over Exeter could be pivotal point in campaign, says Maidenhead coach Bolton
 
Russell Bolton believes the entertaining 41-35 victory over Exeter University could be a pivotal point for Maidenhead as they attempt to master a more controlled style of rugby. 

Maids prefer to move the ball wide and quickly at Braywick, using the width of the pitch and the familiarity of the 3G surface to their advantage. But following a simpler, more direct performance which earned them a win at Drybrook the previous week, Maids repeated this formula to counter a young, energetic university side. And it worked, but only just. "We were tighter today. We would have been playing into their hands if we had played our usual style on this pitch," said head coach Bolton . 

"It was obvious from the first scrum what a weapon that was for us and we also managed to avoid the really cynical play of deliberately knocking on to give us scrummaging advantage. "Two weeks ago against Cleve (following the error-laden 49-46 victory) there was a different feeling around the camp. It was a match with a lot of sloppy mistakes. "What the crowd were treated to this time was two rugby teams playing good rugby in their own different styles." He added: "I was happy with how we played tactically. "We had a lot of control at times and didn't make a huge amount of errors but we were up against an outstanding attacking outfit and we did well to keep them to just four tries. "It was a lesson learned from Drybrook last week and it opened our eyes as to us playing a different style when needed." 

Assessing Exeter, Bolton said: "The structure of our defence looked good but I think Exeter missed a trick. They went wide, wide, but when they went a bit more direct we fell off a couple of tackles. I wonder if they had done that more often whether they would have won. "But they are a hell of an outfit, they moved the ball accurately and will cause a lot of teams a lot of problems." 

Praising some of his players, Bolton added: "I think (fullback) Olly Foxley did a good job in taking away their kicking option because they realised they didn't want to kick it down his throat." 

Bolton also highlighted the efforts of second row Sam Churchyard, back row Todd Muil and scrum-half Mark Childerhouse.
