The Lions came out on top in a ding dong local derby played in a mud bowl at HQ.
Defeat in Wheaton’s first game in charge at a wet and windy Gosport yesterday.
The Lions are up and running for the season with a battling and dramatic victory away to Andover this afternoon.
An improved performance in boggy conditions came up short for the Lions yesterday. A strong start down the Chineham slope allowed @scoble7…
A somewhat sub-optimal outing for the boys yesterday, a combination of illness and injury depleting the squad at the 11th hour.
The first quarter of the game all went totts way as it took chineham a while to build into the game, some loose kicks allowing Totts to counter attack with pace and ease out into a 24-0 lead.
A memorable day for two long-serving players notching their first Chineham tries in the mud and rain. Chineham started strongly in the mud bowl, disrupting the opposition’s line out and dominating at the scrum. The pressure eventually told after a succession of penalties gave the platform for a strong maul spearheaded by Josh Pickett, who sprung over to notch his first Chineham try and get one over on the president.
A disappointing trip to the island for the lions as they came away empty handed despite having the upper hand in the scrum and a hefty amount of possession and territory.
