Stow finish season with bonus-point success

First published in Sport

STOW-on-the-Wold Rugby Club finished sixth in Southern Counties North after a bonus-point 27-3 victory over Drifters.

Captain Tim Peachey should have opened the scoring early on but passed forward when he was already over the try line.

But amends were made when the forwards won clean line-out ball and drove over with Will Brittain-Jones claiming the score and Alex Kelley converting.

Stow continued to press but could not add to the scoreline and Drifters kicked a penalty just before half-time.

The second period saw Stow take control and Kelley added an early penalty before James Holmes gathered and out-gunned the defence to go over in the corner.

More pressure saw Craig Chapman touch down after good support play from the forwards.

Stow went down to 14 men but still held the upper hand. They clinched their try bonus point when Brittain-Jones doubled his tally for the day and Kelley converted.
