Maidenhead RFC score eight tries to tame Bournemouth Lions
 
Maidenhead 52 (26), Bournemouth 30 (13) 

For the second successive home match, Maidenhead scored eight tries in an 11-try thriller which showcased their skill set and underscored their reputation as possibly the most entertaining team in the South West Premier. Maids, who after this 27th consecutive victory at Braywick remain fifth in the table, produced their most dynamic and integrated rugby of the campaign against in-form opponents. Bournemouth, nicknamed the Lions, were far from toothless and they showed why they are third in the table with a brand of attractive, passing rugby that complemented Maids'. 

Both teams put on a show, but it was Maids who took star billing because of their clinical nature, patient ball possession and accurate passing. No.8 Dave Cole – surely Maids' player of the season to date, winger and ex Lions player Jaryd Robinson, centre Ed Keohane and Mark and Andy Darlington in the front row were a few who stood out in what a confidence-boosting victory for the whole squad. Maids led 26-13 at half-time having already secured a bonus point after tries from Will Cadden on two minutes, Jansen looping around on 15 minutes, Will Runciman darting over from close range midway through the half and then a penalty try for a deliberate Lions knock on just before the break. 

Bournemouth had hit back after conceding early with a try from Adam Davies, plus the unerringly accurate kicking of Grant Hancox who slotted a conversion and two penalties in the first 40 minutes. 

Bournemouth, who had replaced their front row within 15 minutes of the start of the match because they were getting shunted off the ball, were again forced to back-pedal in a scrum allowing Cole to dive on the ball and score. Keohane's conversion made it 33-13, giving Maids the breathing space and confidence which they never lost. Even when Luca Firetto touched down and Hancox slotted a conversion and a penalty to cut the deficit to 10 points, Maids had a swagger which said they had the answers to any questions the Lions posed. 

And so it proved as Ryan Long punched a hole through the defence to score and then Sam Angell did likewise shortly after, Keohane notching both conversions. Maids saved the best until last when, from a restart, Cole caught the ball on the 22m line and forged ahead before offloading to Long who, likewise, made 40 yards before a no-look pass on the outside to Robinson who outpaced the defence to score in the corner. It was the try of the season for the hosts, underlining their threat from all over the park. 

Their eight tries came from seven try scorers and a penalty try, highlighting that potential even more starkly. Dan Stewart scored a late try for the visitors, which Hancox converted to maintain his 100 per cent kicking record, but it was scant reward for a strong, watchable but fruitless performance. Maids are away to rivals Bracknell on Saturday with the form and confidence to win the derby and a first match away from Braywick on grass this season.
 
 
 
Important Parking Notice
 
From 1st Dec the council parking restrictions either side of the clubhouse will be enforced by a private contractor employed by the council. The rules remain as before and nothing has changed. If you are not a full member and do not have a full, current car parking permit then you are likely to receive a ticket as parking restrictions will forthwith be more forcibly enforced. 

This includes double parking, yellow lines and disabled bays and parking outside of bays, as well as the Doctor & Ambulance bays by the main gate. In addition it also includes the side of the building where spaces are specifically reserved for Chairman, Commercial Manager and Director of Rugby where parking control now has the registration numbers of said individuals. 

On a positive note the club believes it will make it easier for rugby club members during the week to park (stopping the astro users, footballers, etc, etc) and on Sunday's where a lot of Hockey club members also park without permits. 

To remind all Youth membership at £100 does not include a parking permit. The top gravel car park remains as before without restrictions. 

The car park in front of the Toby remains free evenings after a certain time - users will need to check signs if it is 5pm or 6pm? It is also free on Sunday I believe. 

No excuses or failures to display will be accepted and for the record the club itself is unable to rescind or refund any parking charges received.
