Christoph Bart romps to a hat-trick as Maidenhead RFC scores 12 tries against Chippenham RFC
 
Maidenhead RFC 80 (38) Chippenham RFC 17 (7) 
 
Following the 20-17 defeat at Banbury last week, head coach Russell Bolton witnessed the perfect response from his Maidenhead team who ran in an impressive 12 tries in overwhelming Chippenham at Braywick. Stung by their narrow loss seven days before, and with it the top spot in South West 1 East, Maids started the clash in top gear, being two tries ahead after six minutes, and maintained that clinical approach for most of the match.

It was as close as Maids have come to an 80-minute performance in this campaign.

The visitors, who to their credit scored three tries and enjoyed periods of pressure when they kept the ball with the pack and recycled it, struggled defensively in the backline.

They couldn't handle the pace of Tom Finnie or the power of Christoph Bart, and failed to put fly-half Will Thompson under any meaningful pressure. As a result Maids bagged six tries in the first half through Finnie (2), Bart, Sam Churchyard, Lewis Jones and Will Thompson mostly through stretching the play, playing at pace and off-loading time and time again.

Chippenham scored a touchdown five minutes from the interval, but with Finnie adding eight points to the tally from four successful conversions, the hosts led 38-7 at the break. Maids have switched off before In this sort of scenario, but they stayed hungry all through the second period, even though the match was already won at half-time.

Dealing with a Chippenham side desperate to at least bag four tries to earn a losing bonus point and a referee who struggled to keep up with play physically and mentally, Maids did well to double their try-count after the break. The experienced Mike Burnett ensured Maids started the second half as they did the first, with an early try, then fellow winger Stephen Prince dotted down for the first time in the match.

Chippenham managed to notch two more tries, but they couldn't maintain a threat and wilted as Maids finished strongly, as they so often do. Two more tries for Bart - to complete his hat-trick - plus one apiece for scrum-half rivals Mark Childerhouse and Jack Hill, added to an immaculate six out of six conversions this half for Finnie, delivered Maids an entertaining and comprehensive victory.

Maids picked up a point on leaders Old Patesians, who could only earn four points from beating Swindon which means there is now just one point between the top two teams. Maids are at Grove next Saturday, a team Chippenham beat 43-12 last Saturday.

Attendance: 319.

MINI MOHAWKS TOUCH RUGBY CAMP – FEB HALF TERM 
 
Touch Rugby Camp returns to Maidenhead RFC from Tue 14 – Thur 16 Feb (9am to 3pm with 8.30am drop-off available on request) for children aged 5-13. 

Touch rugby is great for developing handling skills, speed, agility, lines of running, decision-making and fitness! 

We try to incorporate as many of these skills as we can into modified and full games so that the children are learning but at the same time are making new friends and, most importantly, having fun! 
Touch rugby is huge down under and is often quoted as the reason handling skills are generally high over there. 

Have a look at some junior games to get a flavour of what touch rugby is all about: 

 If you would like a registration form or have any questions, please contact Sammie Phillips: sammie@in2touch.com / 07766 525 938.
