Chew Valley edges closer to winning rugby's Western Counties North

By Andrew Tanner in Rugby

Western Counties North looks like a three horse race as Chew Valley made the most of their game in hand with a bonus point win against strugglng Avon.

With half of last week’s side away on the piste, it was a reflection of the strength in depth of the hosts that they could deliver when it mattered with a much changed team.

Teenage flanker Sam Wedlake was man of the match with a standout display and Tom Limb, another to come through and shine in his first appearance at this level. It was a day of the debuts as Barney Nelson making his first start on the wing, added a try to the scoreboard. Further tries came from driving mauls close by Ross Elliott and then Mitchell Quoi who was making his last appearance at home before departing to start a new life in Sweden.

Charles Shallcross captaining the side for the first time scored the pick of the tries which delivered the bonus point with a clever line off a scrum 25 metres out.

This result takes Chew Valley into the playoff place with Yatton away next up.
