Avonvale v Melksham 1st XV

Scott simmons said:

Avonvale were a very organised and physical team so are plan was to disrupt that and play on the counter. In the first half we executed this plan well and were on top and looked like we controlled the game. After half time we allowed them to play and are discipline was poor and gifted them points due to this that could of won them the game. With a minute to go and two points down I thought we had lost the game but quick thinking from Connor Randell and Brad Wilkins who was outstanding for us took the quick kick off and put pressure on there winger and won us a penalty that we quickly tapped and Matt went over into the corner to win us the game. The guys showed great character to get the win and something we haven’t had for a few years so great to see. Our confidence is growing and the exciting part is I don’t feel we have shown our best rugby yet so onto a big home fixture next week against Calne.
