Marlow moved up to third in the Southern Counties North Division after blowing away local rivals High Wycombe 45-5.

The home side began well and Charlie Cotton made the decisive break, offloading to George Buckle in the tackle, who scored in the left corner. Jamie Maddern’s low kick into the wind didn’t quite make the distance. 5-0

Immediately from the kick off Nick Carvey caught the ball, and passed it to Maddern, space opened up in front of him and Maddern simply’ ran through the oncoming Wycombe players untouched, and then it was a foot race for the line, which Maddern won by a margin. He was clearly out of breath, having run 70m flat out, so Anthony Lawless took over kicking duties, and was immediately successful with the conversion. 12-0

Soon afterwards history repeated itself, but this time it was a loose Wycombe pass that started the move, intercepted by Maddern, inside his own half, he again sprinted 70m to score and Lawless converted for a 19-0 lead.

Just before half-time, Cotton decided to run at the Wycombe defence from inside his own half and scythed through on the left wing. Great support running from Carvey, on the inside, left the Wycombe full back making the fatal error of not committing himself to either of the attacking players and ended up in no man’s land between them, giving Cotton a clear lane to the left corner for a 24-0 lead at the break.

Marlow's start to the second half wasn't ideal with Lawless getting a yellow card.Things weren’t helped when Anthony Lawless attempted to intercept yet another loose Wycombe pass, but he didn’t quite get hold of the ball and the Referee felt it was only a one-handed intercept so showed him a yellow card, so we were down to 14.

However, with Lawless' return, Buckle scored another try which Lawless converted for a 31-0 lead.

More loose passing from Wycombe, who were now trying to run everything, presented with Curran McMillan the opportunity to get his name on the score sheet, especially as the full back was not at home when he broke out of the tackle. Lawless made another great kick. 38-0

Finally, Maddern got back on the score board with another lovely diagonal run, and simple pop pass from Carvey, which cut open the Wycombe defence and allowed him to run clean through. With his success rate so far there was only one person to attempt the conversion, and Lawless didn’t disappoint. 45-0

Wycombe went over in the left corner for a consolation try thanks to excellent work from Tom Catchpole.

Although Marlow got maximum points win, the two teams above them managed to do the same, with Buckingham winning at Reading and Windsor getting a AWO when Littlemore were unable to raise a side.

Marlow now face Littlemore on March 23 (kick off 3pm) and Wycombe have a home clash with Reading (3pm).
