Chineham RFC

Chineham 41-17 Andover

A 7 try showing for the Lions, as the lads bellied the conditions to secure a bonus point victory for the Lions against a physical Andover 23 💪🏼

Fly-half Matt Lingham got the show on the road, as Chineham made a strong start, barrelling his way through to dot down. Winger Ben Goodman was next to notch, smartly stepping inside to score after good work in midfield. Centre Adam Lincoln then put the finishing touches on a flowing move that saw great hands from the Chineham backline. The next score came from winger George Young powerfully finishing after leaving a trail of defenders in his wake. The icing on the cake of a fine first-half display saw Lingham again scythe through the opposition midfield to double his tally.

With the bonus point secured at halftime, Chineham took their foot off the gas momentarily, and the visitors opened the second half with a try of their own. A strong response led to a pinpoint chip from Lingham dropping beautifully for Goodman to release Lincoln to score his second under the posts. The visitors then scored twice in quick succession, the first a penalty try following a high tackle close to the line, and the second from a series of picks and goes from close range. The final score of the game went to Chineham, with Goodman beating several defenders to stretch acrobatically to score.
