Murray Kicks Chiefs to Victory

By

Strong performance sees off fancied Withycombe

Ali Murray pulled the strings, orchestrating the Chiefs first win of the season.

Argaum Started brightly and the pack took the game to the visitors from the off. Loosehead prop, Mason Edwards barging his way over the line after ten minutes. Murray converted, making amends for his duck last week.

Withycombe were awarded a penalty in front of the posts 15 meters out. They set their stall out and turned down the points to front up at the Scrum. Argaum scrambled in defence and cleared their lines.

Soon after, Dan James went off with injury and coach Gordon Howells had to reshuffle, putting winger Troy Gobey into the centres.

Murray slotted another penalty after 20 minutes, which Glenn Channing replied to almost immediately. Then, on the stroke of half time, Withycombe struck, converting their try, making it 10-8 at the break.

The visitors started to turn the screw in the second half, scoring twice to go up 20-10.

Murray then started to pull the strings. Mixing the play, causing Withycombe to concede ground in the midfield.

Gobey took the ball round the back and doubled up on himself to dot down under the posts. Murray converted.

It must be said that Murray's job was made easier due to the crisp service from Ben Glanfield, who fired out pass after pass.

Free running from the pack, notably Simon Jones and Kevin Sidebottom helped open the game up and the backs capitalised through Dave Hall supplying Matt Bankhead to finish in the corner.

Two points up, with 2 minutes to go, whilst turning the screw, Argaum were awarded a penalty under the posts. Perhaps rashly, Glanfield took it quickly instead of taking the points. The ball however was secured and popped out for Murray to scuff a drop goal over the posts, to seal the victory!
