Rugby round-up: Farnham Royal RFC play their part in entertaining Bucks Bowl bash

Farnham Royal 21, Bletchley 51

Farnham Royal could not overcome Bletchley in the Bucks Bowl on Saturday despite scoring three converted tries in an open entertaining match.

Coming from behind, Royal responded with their first try from Johnny Spandley following a sniping break.

Although Bletchley score again, Royal responded again in a half where the lead changed four times.

This time Royal No.8 Adam Barley powered over from close range with three defenders on his back.

Alex King slotted his second conversion.

Bletchley scored two further tries before the break to lead 24-14 at half-time.

The visitors dominated the scoring after the interval, however Royal did grab a third touchdown when Spandley, now playing at inside centre, rounded off another long-range score which King converted.

Farnham Royal’s man of the match was winger Eimal Noori.

Thatcham 96, Drifters 14

Southern Counties North strugglers Drifters made it four defeats out of four when they went down 96-14 at Thatcham on Saturday.

Rock-bottom Drifters conceded 14 tries on a day to forget.
