Rugby - Ross 30 Cainscross 7

Their ninth straight league win puts Ross within striking distance of Championship. With three games remaining Ross require just one victory to ensure they will be champions of Glos. Division 3 after a convincing 30 - 7 victory over Cainscross on Saturday. However with nine straight wins, Ross are looking to run through the season unbeaten.

Cainscross travelled to Ross in second place and were looking to derail Ross's unbeaten run, however they were always second best throughout the match. With the game barely five minutes old, Mike Davies broke through some weak tackling to score under the posts. Chris Gage converted, giving Ross a 7 - 0 lead and with plenty of possession, Ross had the opportunity to add to their early lead. However a litany of mistakes and errors contributed to a stop start first half, enabling Cainscross to remain in the contest. This was compounded twenty minutes into the game when Cainscross scored and converted a try making the score 7 - 7. Even though the error count continued to grow, territorial pressure led to two kickable penalties which Chris Gage converted, giving a half time score of 13 - 7 to Ross.

The break enabled Ross to regroup and reflect on a error ridden first half and the response was instant. They cut out the errors and as a result were able to up the tempo of the game. This increased tempo began to unsettle the Cainscross defence and with Adam Clements and Hugh Bellamy finding gaps, it was only a matter of time before a score came. After some good driving play by Tara Barnett and Matthew Redman, the ball was moved quickly out to Hugh Bellamy, who broke the the first line of defence before cutting inside the Cainscross fullback to score. Chris Gage converted making the score 20 - 7.

With a two score cushion Ross began to relax and play their natural open game. After some strong running from Dave Mince and Nick Brierley, the ball was moved quickly to Wayne Bishop who fed Adam Clements. Adam thought he had scored but the linesman ruled a foot in touch so the try was disallowed. However within five minutes, Adam Clements got onto the score sheet. After some slick handling from forwards and backs, Adam went over wide out on the right, giving Ross a comfortable 25 - 7 lead.

Ross continued to dominate and could have added another 3 or 4 tries. The final score went to Wayne Bishop. After Alistair Rees had made good ground down the right, the ball was quickly moved left through several pairs of hands before Wayne finished off the move in the left hand corner, making the final score 30 - 7.

Ross's next fixture is at Old Cryptians on 25th February. Kick off is at 2:30 pm.
