High Wycombe Rugby FC continued their good form with a comfortable 24-8 win over Littlemore in the Southern Counties North Division on Saturday.

Wycombe began the game well and pressed towards the opposing line early on, this resulted in Matt Wardle putting Dan Kier through a gap to score in the corner. The subsequent kick was missed.

Minutes later Wycombe found themselves on the front foot again and following a chip from Wardle that he was able to re-gather, he laid the ball off to Joff Forber for a score under the post. This time the kick was converted.

It had been an excellent start from the away team scoring two tries in the opening minutes, but any hope of a comfortable afternoon was quickly dispelled. Although Wycombe had more possession, unforced errors were creeping in and this let Littlemore into the game. It was unsurprising that they too found the try-line this side of the half-time whistle.

Wycombe wanted to reassert their authority at the start of the second half, but it was the home team who struck first taking the three points on offer from a penalty.

Wycombe responded well and following a neat passage of play, Forber put Greg Butters away to score. Unfortunately, the kick was missed. Following this, Wycombe continued to apply the pressure and this ultimately resulted in a good break from Ollie Fennell-Wells.

A well-timed pass inside to Tom Catchpole saw Wycombe again score under the posts and the kick converted this time. This made the final score 24-8 in Wycombe’s favour.

Despite a comprehensive final score-line, it is clear that Wycombe will need to cut out the errors they made against Littlemore if they want to maintain their winning streak

Wycombe next face Marlow RFC on Saturday, December 1 at 2pm.
