Dominant Tows stroll to win

Towcestrians put last week’s disappointing loss behind them to stroll to a 43-10 victory against Loughborough on Saturday.

Tows took the game to their opponents from kick-off with renewed vigour, which was epitomised by David Williams when he ran a spectacular angle to touch down under the posts to give James Falvey an easy conversion.

Towcester’s second try came from Craig Holton – Falvey again adding the extras.

Despite having to play four props in the pack due to injury, Tows were dominant in possession and, with Loughborough resorting to kicking the ball away, full back Matt Yuill capitalised to find Charlie Barker in support for a third try.

On the stroke of half time, Tows were reduced to 13-men but that didn’t halt their charge as they scored some fine tries in the second period.

Breaking blind from a scrum, winger Adam Wilkinson broke through multiple tackles to find Yuill in support before he played in Barker, who finished out wide for a scintillating score.

Borough eventually came back with a try from fly half Jack Partington.

But Tows sealed the win with a try finished off by Martyn Harvey, who latched on to another break from Williams.

Influential replacement Marc Yeates came on to rub salt into the wounds of the Loughborough team as he carved holes in in the defence to finally release Chrissie George to run in. Falvey converted.

In an attempt to run from their own line, Tows clumsily conceded a last minute try from Loughborough scrum half Marsden but victory has already been secured.

Elsewhere, Ben Nichols scored four tries in the IIs 80-5 win against BBOB.

This Saturday, Tows 1st XV, who are fourth in Midlands 1 East, travel to take on the unbeaten Peterborough Lions.
