Chiltern were comfortable 47-7 winners over South Woodham Ferrers who were visiting Weedon Lane for the first time on Saturday.

After only five minutes play, scrum-half Stuart Pearham raced through a gap before throwing a lovely long pass out to winger Lloyd Anderson whose pace and strength saw him outflank the visitors defence to score the first try of the game which Pearham converted.

Chiltern were then awarded a penalty try which these days results in an automatic seven points before they scored a third converted try to make it 21-0 at the break.

Jordan Scott scored again after being put into space on the visitors 22. His strong run put him clear for the bonus point try which was not converted. With the bonus point secured, the visitors scored a deserved converted try which bought the score to 26-7. 

Skipper Ryan Cole, who himself had an outstanding game, not surprisingly delivered a very stern lecture to his players who duly responded with an excellent final 20 minutes in which they scored a further three tries through Scott, Tala Petelo and Josh Davies.

In all the circumstances, and on a wet miserable day, seven tries and a bonus point was a very satisfactory outcome particularly as Chiltern had to make a couple of changes.
