Brixham RFC edge out Maidenhead RFC in cold war of attrition
 
Neither side really came close to scoring a try, on a bog of a pitch, as Maidenhead fell to a narrow 6-0 defeat at Brixham RFC on Saturday. You have to go back almost four years for the last time Maids were 'nilled', to use captain Myke Parrott's words, and the skipper said that the dreadful conditions made it difficult for either side to threaten the try line. 

The difference between the sides was kicker Tom Putt, who slotted penalties in either half, whereas Ed Keohane's attempts came up just short or flashed wide in the windy conditions. "The game was mainly played between the 22s in horrendous conditions," said Parrott. "Their kicker managed to nudge two kicks and we weren't quite able to. If he'd have been playing for us, we'd have probably won 6-0. "It was just a really tough, attritional game, played in awful conditions. "It's been a while since we were nilled. 

It's not happened in Russell's reign. "It was probably four years ago, when we lost at Windsor without scoring. We couldn't really do anything with the ball and it was a similar story for them." The players travelled to Devon desperate to honour the memory of director of rugby Tony Brooks – who'd passed away the previous weekend – with a victory. 

But it wasn't to be. "We were speaking about this afterwards, and, although we didn't win, so many people gave up so much to be there," added Parrott. "We had 14 players who were due to watch the Darlo brothers play for Holland, but they cancelled that and were there to play or support. "Sam Hallett had been due to celebrate his wedding anniversary, but he cancelled that, and others cancelled work. 

 "That's something Tony would have been far more proud of, and it would have meant more to him than a rugby result." On Saturday, Maids travel to second placed Bournemouth for a game which may well determine which side finishes behind Dings Crusaders and takes the play-off place. 

"We did a really good job on them at our place, and if we can get anywhere near that level again I'd be confident of coming away with a victory," said Parrott.
