A ruthless performance from High Wycombe saw them smash struggling Littlemore 110-24 in their Southern Counties North clash on Saturday.

From the start of the match, the home team were in control and the first try came from an Alex Chitan steal at the lineout.

The ball was fed out to Craig Murray who carried hard, he offloaded the ball in the tackle to put Jake Banton in behind the defence.

He unselfishly drew the last defender and put Tom Bosley away to score from the half way line, kick missed 5-0. Although they brought a severely depleted squad, Littlemore hit back when a twenty-two drop out was charged down presenting the away team with possession. After several phases a combination of some poor tackling and a strong carry allowed the Littlemore number 13 to go over and score, 5-5. Littlemore were enjoying their fair share of possession but strong work over the ball from Murray forced Littlemore into conceding a penalty.

Matt Wardle spotted a gap and instead of kicking for touch took a quick tap and carried the ball from inside his own half handing off the final defender to score, Wardle made the kick 12-5. Tony Lane added another try minutes later after some strong carries from the forwards 19-5, before Tom Catchpole showed good pace to score 24-5.

Wycombe extended their lead further when number eight Murray picked up from a scrum and powered his way over the line, 31-5.

From the kick off a strong run from Harry Tanner set up good field position for the home team and with quick ball winger Greg Butters went over for his first try of the afternoon, 38-5. This was quickly followed up with a Banton try after some good work from Rob Johnson 45-5 and then a length of the field run enabled Wardle to score his second 50-5. Two further Banton tries and a third for Wardle took the score out to 69-5 at half time.

The second half started as the first ended and a strong Murray run put Wycombe in behind the defence, an offload to Butters sent him away to score 76-5. A missed kick to touch allowed Wycombe to score their next try with Butters making a break. The ball came out to Banton who stepped three players to score his fourth try 83-5.

Huge credit must go to Littlemore who never gave up and from a penalty for obstruction they kicked to touch. An accurate throw to the back allowed them to camp on the Wycombe line and eventually score, 83-12.

Wycombe hit back and from a quick lineout some good hands fed the ball out to Butters who stepped the covering defence to score, 88-12.

Littlemore enjoyed some possession but an unfortunate knock on handed possession back to the home team and a break by Banton was well supported by Wardle who received the final pass to score 93-12.

Not to be deterred, Littlemore carried on working hard and a knock on at a lineout from the Wycombe forwards presented the away team with a scrum eight metres from the line. A solid scrum enabled Littlemore to secure the ball and some good continuity and hard carries enabled them to score 93-17.

Littlemore were battling hard but a hole in their defence was exploited by scrum half Toby Little who carried the ball into the twenty-two, although he was hauled down, he managed to offload to Tanner to score 100-17. With Wycombe continuing to press an errant pass fell to a Littlemore player who scooped the ball up and showed good pace to run the ball in from the halfway line to score and earn the away team a well-deserved bonus point 100-24. In the final minutes of the game Wycombe were able to run in two more tries from Chitan and Bosley to take the final score out to 110-24.

Wycombe have a local derby away to Marlow on Saturday (3pm).
