High Wycombe lost a local derby as they crashed to a 24-7 defeat to Aylesbury to keep up their inconsistent start.

After a tight first half, where the score was 10-7 to Aylesbury, the visitors then stepped on the gas in the second half and made life tough for Wycombe.

The home side started the second half well and were awarded a couple of penalties but a combination of good Aylesbury defence and unforced errors at the lineout meant the home team couldn’t capitalise. 

It was now Wycombe’s turn to be at the wrong end of the referee’s whistle which presented Aylesbury with good field position, and Wycombe were once again penalised for not rolling away. 

At this point the referee appeared to stop the game and put his hand in his pocket seemingly to give a Wycombe player a yellow card but behind his back Aylesbury took a quick tap, play was allowed to continue and a try was scored in the corner and no yellow card was given.

This seemed to deflate the home team and a few minutes later another try was conceded when Wycombe lost possession close to their own line and Aylesbury made them pay for a 24-7 victory.
