BUCKINGHAM made a swift return to winning ways following last week’s loss to Alchester as they hammered Aylesbury 65-7.

Under blues skies and in front of a big crowd, Aylesbury had no answer to Buckingham’s blistering pace and slick passing in a dominant display.

Dave Hawkins opened the scoring inside four minutes with Andy White converting to set the tone for the afternoon.

White added a penalty and Buckingham continued to batter the visiting defence until Tom Amos picked up from the back of a scrum and surged deep into Aylesbury territory before an exquisite floated pass took out two defenders, leaving Jamie Hulston a clear run to the posts.

The home side then produced a magical spell of magical rugby to score three tries in 10 minutes.

White set up the first of those when his kick was recycled to Andy Thompson before Matt Payne stormed over and Hulstion combined with Phil Wright to send Adam Clarke clear.

White kicked well to give Buckingham a healthy 36-0 advantage at half time.

The home side took a mere two minutes to add a sixth try when Hulston fastened onto an Aylesbury mistake.

Time and time again Buckingham charged forward to allow Clarke to score his second in the corner While Hawkins crossed for an eighth try following superb play from Rob Laird.

The hosts remained dominant with Hulston completing his hat-trick before some good inter-passing saw him clinch his fourth try.

Aylesbury had the final word on the stroke of full time with a converted try but the result was never in doubt.

Attention turns to the cup this Saturday when Buckingham visit Milton Keynes in the semi-final of the Bucks Shield at 2.30pm.
