Senior results – Saturday 9th January

London Welsh Druids 17 – 7 Chobham 1st XV

It was fantastic to welcome in the New Year with a great match at the historic Old Deer Park rugby ground. Following the disappointment of losing the last match of 2021, and the enforced break from the league this weekend, it was important to offer the Chobham senior players a chance of a run out. Thanks then to our dedicated fixtures team (Nigel Rowlands!) and to London Welsh for the offer of a match. It is great credit to Chobham RFC that an unprecedented mid-season friendly elicited over 40 players looking to play – ensuring we committed to not one, but two senior matches (with the |Mighty Cannons taking on Warlingham).

 

At Old Deer Park the 1st XV took on London Welsh 2s. Covid (of course!) wreaked havoc on selection with late Friday and Saturday morning changes required. Some might look at a mixed group, late selected and managing multiple positional changes and think that this may preclude a poor afternoon – but Head Coach Billy Davison was happy to report that the opposite was true. The (only) 16 players charged with representing Scarlet & Golds were fantastic! The players responded superbly; not only to the call to focus on what they love about the sport, but also to respect the opportunity to play on a ground steeped in rugby history. Even the playing of “The Green, Green Grass of Home” over the stadium tannoy did not put off the team!

 

In many ways the team produced one of the best and most committed starts to a game seen all season. Charged with having to repel multiple London Welsh attacks, the Chobham defence remained resolute. Those of us lucky enough to attend were treated to a wonderful afternoon of close, competitive and positive rugby. This was certainly borne out in the possession and territory stats of the first half. With no score registered by either team in the first 25mins it was certainly evident that we were in for an afternoon to remember.

 

The home team finally scored first (and second) to finish the half just 10-0 ahead. A little more pass accuracy would have certainly seen the visitors challenge even further. To share the half-term break with the Chobham 1st XV was to enjoy being part of team buzzing from a great first half; and ready to attack again. A strong scrum, consistent lineout and committed defending were all in evidence.

 

With two enforced team changes it was down to match-day coach Robbie Kennard to fetch his boots and jersey from the clubhouse and join the fray! Belief, confidence and sustained pressure saw Chobham cross the line, and convert the try: 10-7. The second half proved as entertaining as the first and with only last ditch tackling on the try line preventing further Chobham scoring more, it was always going to be tight. In the end the hosts scored a deserved try late on to finish the game 17-7. A chance then to enjoy a pint in the fantastic old clubhouse, and to celebrate the players of the day (to the back drop of “Delilah”!). Chobham Player of the Day (chosen by London Welsh) – Aran Parsons. All the players involved can be proud of their efforts – special mention to the ever-improving Sam Goddard and to Harrison Jones: a teenager whose efforts in support of his team-mates was extraordinary. Well done all!

 

Chobham Cannons 19-24 Warlingham 2s 

The Cannons took on Warlingham 2s in the torrential rain making flowing rugby rather difficult. Warlingham saw most of the possession in the opening 20 minutes of the game but the defence stood up well to the barrage of runners with Robbie Brown and Simon Rumsey fronting up. However it was first blood Warlingham before Chobham replied through TJ  Sims just before the break, going through multiple phases in tricky conditions. The second half ebbed and flowed between the sides with another try for TJ Sims and a try for Pat Watts, however the Cannons were punished for over playing in the wrong parts of the pitch. Although not the start to 2022 the Cannons would have liked, there’s a lot to be proud of and a performance we can certainly build on.

Chob take the Spoils at Twickenham

Twickenham 13 – 19 Chobham

The Mighty Chobham travelled to Twickenham on Saturday and got their season back on tracks with a tight win against dogged opposition, a man of the match performance from Benji Boyd was the difference in the awful weather at Parkfields. From the kick off the high winds affected every ball that left a players hand or foot, despite how close they were.

 

Chobham had eight changes to the team who faced Reeds, excitingly there were four debutants, including the debut at back row of 18-year-old Harrison Jones. He played through the Juniors at Chobham and has matured into a formidable flanker and thoroughly deserved the start in Billy Davison’s team, he put in a great performance against a very experienced back row and was replaced after 50 minutes by Dan Warren, who recently joined from Alresford. Chobham also see the debut of winger Christian Lewendon, a student at Surrey University, a last-minute call up saw tight head Rich Fisher on the bench.

 

Chob played into the wind in the first half and the hosts tactics kept them pinned inside their 22, the Scarlet and Golds solid defence kept them out and fullback Rumsey intercepted a loopy pass from the Twickenham prop 10m out and to run 20m metres before kicking the ball and to see Mawhood collect the ball and run it unopposed under the posts.

 

Puttock’s jumping disrupted the hosts lineout well and he was able to win two against the head. But Twickenham continued to attack the Chob line and finally after half an hour scrum half Goddard evened the score. But it was the visitors who upset the Twickenham game plan and camped themselves inside the Twickenham 22 for 5 minutes before scrappy ball allowed a long pass carried by the wind to put Boyd into the left corner and saw Chobham go in 12-7 at half time.

 

From the start of the second half the visitors did not take advantage of the wind and made things difficult for themselves, and it was from a poor scrum pass that Chob gave away a penalty that saw Foster take the hosts into double figures. Poor ruck discipline allowed Twickenham another chance at the posts and to take the lead through Foster’s boot. A highlight of Chobham’s second half was Goddard’s ball carrying in attack and Hargan in defence.

 

The scrappy second half was lit up by a great catch in the air by the visitor’s winger Boyd who shimmied through the Twickenham defence from the half way to be taken 2m short, Chobham then set up some well worked pick and goes before centre Blackmur score for a converted try. The last 20 minutes saw Chobham try to make the game theirs but they couldn’t finish it off.

 

Chobham’s visit to Twickenham was dominated by the high winds, a strong scrum and the visitor’s stamina in defence. In dry, still conditions this may have easily been a different game. Credit must go to Joe Samuels Twickenham for never giving up in their quest to upset the visitors game. The Scarlett and Golds need to prepare themselves for next Saturday against higher placed Eastleigh.

 

Coach Billy Davison said “ at times our game management was poor, but our defensive work and scrums were huge positives, Benji Boyd had a fantastic game and was the difference between the two teams.”

 

Harry Norman-Walker, Chobham’s Director of Rugby, believes “that our pack has so much more to give with hopefully a number of returning injured players and the opportunity for players like James Stark to play in their true position in the backs, we are also grateful for Cannons captain Rich Fisher stepping up in the last minute to travel to Parkfields on the toughest of days.

 

I hate to say this, but next week is a must win game if we want to finish in the top half of this very competitive league.”

Score Flatters Reeds

Chobham 20 – 39 Reeds Weybridge

Chobham gave the visitors a run for their money and the score made it look a far easier result for Reeds. The game was definitely split in to four sections of dominance that was to and fro between the two teams. Two decisive yellow cards for denying the hosts a score could easily have been penalty tries at decisive points in the game.

Reeds Weybridge, a team Chobham hadn’t played for years, visited Fowlers Wells for a huge derby. Third placed Reeds were in buoyant mood having last week beaten top of the table Chiswick, Chob knew they had a tough afternoon ahead and were more than aware of Josh Clarke’s accuracy with the boot from his time at Chobham.

Saturday saw prop Dave Evans 50th 1st XV Cap for Chobham, his first game was back on the 11th March 2017, also the return into the squad 1st XV captain Phil Williams at centre, hooker Sean Bellion, flanker Ben Puttock, wing Samuel Davies and Leon Nell on the bench. From the kick off the hosts slowly started to build momentum and from a penalty took the lead through full back Davies. Reeds then woke up and then strong running backs contributed to four tries before the break, a very confident Reeds led 26-3 at half time.

The second half saw the Scarlett & Golds come out at a higher level, they had the control of the game and attacked the Reeds line – the visitors diligent defence held the hosts out until Reeds Billy Maddock prevented a try and was sent to the sin bin. A few minutes later sniping scrum half Kennard pick from the back of a ruck 15 m out to score a try to the right of the posts. From a Reeds 5m defensive lineout Thirlwell stripped the visitors of the ball, following some attacking runs from Nell and Bellion, Kennard released Bainbridge to score a converted try.

The visitors now seemed to be at a loss as to how to get a grip of the game. With Reeds then back up to a full complement they then saw replacement Styger go to the bin for preventing another try, this was the third time the visitors had got away with preventing a scoring opportunity and still no Penalty Try – Chobham had to hold their emotions. The visitors ran the ball and following a brace of rucks a great miss pass from Mawhood to Rumsey saw the winger score in the right-hand corner. At 20-26 Chob were now within a score and their confidence was flowing.

Unfortunately, the last 10 minutes saw Reeds regain their confidence and show the class they are to put the game to bed with three unanswered tries. The Man of the Match performance for Goddard at 8 for the first time kept Chobham in the game and the return of the Scarlett & Golds talisman Williams were huge factors in the game.

Harry Norman-Walker, Chobham Director of Rugby, said “that was a frustrating game and we proved we have the ability to beat the top of the table teams, Reeds looked rattled and they can only be relieved to close it off in the last 10 minutes.

If we can put an 80-minute performance together like the first 25 minutes of the second half I feel comfortable we can have a great second half of the season.”

Hove succumb to Chobs forward domination!

Chobham headed to the south coast on Saturday to long time rivals Hove, both teams had had poor starts and both needed to prove to the rest of the league that they were there to be taken seriously. Chobs continued injury list hampered the back line and the visitors knew that 9 man rugby would be the call for the day, the packs dominance at the scrum won Chobham the game.

Luke Mcloughlin made his 1st XV debut, a Junior at the club and the full back has more recently played for Dings in Bristol. Selection in the pack this week had been difficult, which saw Sam Thirwell return to the pack and first appearances of the year for double centurion Liam Monaghan and scrum half Robbie Kennard. In the pack Jacob Bainbridge, Leon Nell, Angus Hargan, Chris Kent and Sam Goddard have played every game this campaign so far.

The sea breeze blew through the recreational park from the kick off by Chobham and from the start the unforced errors by both sides were the pattern for the day. Against the early play where Chob infringed at the breakdown consistently they were awarded a penalty just outside the Hove 22 and Davies converted the. Two minutes later the visitors attack was turned over by Hove as there was no support at the breakdown; from the clearance Monaghan made a decisive run into the midfield and set up a series of rucks that following a sniping run by Kennard he released Si Rumsey to score his first league try for Chobham, with Davies getting the afters. Chobs fourth score of the day came from a kick out from under the posts by the hosts, Davies had time and scored a drop goal to give the visitors a 13-0 lead halfway through the half.

5 minutes later Chobham winger Sheppard was sent to the sin bin for a ruck offence, with the numerical advantage the home team started to get back in the game and from a Chob knock on Hove 13 ran a central line from the halfway to score a converted try. Two minutes later a pick and go from a ruck 22 metres out by Hove 7 saw them release the No.8 for another converted try. The hosts comeback took them into the break 14-13 up.

Chobham started the second half just as they had the first with domination by the pack, winning scrum after scrum. Eventually the hosts lost their 18 to the bin for constant scrum penalties, concluding in a penalty try to the visitors. Chob kept Hove pinned in their half but could not convert domination to points. From a 22 lineout the visitors took the ball through phases to the far touch and then a great cutting run by Goddard saw him give the killer pass to Benton to score his first try for Chobham, converted by Davies. Following a Hove front row injury substitution the next scrum saw the replacement prop be yellow carded for a collapsed scrum – luckily it came at the time when the other sin bin came back on. But the hosts still went down to 13 players, negating all of Chobhams scrum dominance.

The next score in the game came from Monaghan’s right wing and gave the visitors an 18 point lead with just a quarter of an hour to go. Chobs ability to close off a game was lost and from that point Hove went for the jugular, with the visitors giving penalty after penalty at the breakdown. Eventually replacement Kent went to the bin for not rolling away for the last 10 minutes. From the scrum option Hove’s No.8 cored his second converted try. Following a kick and chase Hove got the final converted try from their centre again.

Following the final whistle there was relief that 80 minutes had seen Chobham’s first win on the road this season, they must control their discipline and convert dominance better in future.

After the game backs coach and captain Robbie Kennard said “A good win for us and fair play to Hove, they certainly had their chances and made us work for the points. The boys up front were super today; we dominated the set piece and that’s what league rugby is all about. In a frustrating manner, we fell asleep in the last 10 minutes, but on the whole there were some huge positives.

We are building nicely and as players return from injury; competition for places will be tough and make things very interesting”.

Director of Rugby Harry Norman-Walker said “It was great to see such a dominant scrum and despite a poor last quarter we deserved the win. We still need to sort out our game discipline as we had far too many unforced errors and turnovers at the breakdown.

Very positive performances from the pack was led by the return of scrummie Robbie Kennard who definitely got the game from the scruff of the neck ad played a simple 9 man game. Personally apart from Robbie, I thought Dan Benton was another highlight of the day – as well as Luke Mcloughlin having a good debut.

 

With next weeks home game against lower placed Reigatians this gives us a great opportunity to underline our 4th place in the league. With 9 squad players still on the injury list we are looking forward to their return over the next few weeks.”

Next week Chobham host Reigatians, as well as Paignton Vets visiting them on tour- an annual home and away fixture that is over a quarter of a century old.

U19s Tour Match Report

End of an era marked with victory for class of 02/03

Sunday 5th September marked the final match for Chobham’s class of 2002/03, with an Under 19 fixture against Tetbury, who generously agreed to pull together a fixture at short notice in mid-August. The match was played in the grounds of the Royal Agricultural College, but despite having not played as a team for 18 months there was nothing agricultural about the game. Played under a blazing sun, the warm-up was an opportunity to sweat out the previous night’s entertainment for lad and dad alike before getting down to the main attraction.

Chobham kicked off, with the early minutes spent sizing each other up and getting used to actually playing rugby again. Neither side could string any real momentum together with small errors breaking up the flow of the game. Chobham were the first to threaten though as Tetbury kicked deep, but a raking return kick took a couple of very friendly bounces leading to a line out just 15 yards from the Tetbury line.

A knock-on at the line led to the first scrum, played uncontested due to the long break and some inexperience in the front row. Chobham kept up the pressure with a series of charges from Cooper at no. 8 and then Olly and Billy from quick rucks. A third phase created space to the right and Danny was able to stretch over with a dart from fly-half to open the scoring at 5-0.

Tetbury came right back at Chobham and had a spell of territory at the Chobham end, aided by a handful of penalties. From one quick penalty Tetbury tried to spread play wide to the right, but Matt was in like a line-backer to stop his opposite centre in his tracks. Chob’ slowly ground out some possession with Saxon hauling play well into the Tetbury half and Max being on hand with a big hit which resulted in a turnover, but the visitors couldn’t develop a scoring chance. Late in the period Chob’ were in range again, the lineout operating well with Tom quickly moving the ball ‘off the top’ but the Tetbury wing gathered a chip and neatly stepped around a couple of tacklers to create the foundation for a counter attack. There was just time for Danny to be defrocked in a tackle, losing the ‘try scorers tutu’ before the ref blew for quarter time and the players gratefully had a breather in the heat.

The second period also began with a period of midfield action as both sides continued to play a little rustily. Chobham just about edged the territory with Ben stepping up to scrum-half and keeping his pack moving forwards with a couple of good kicks. Charlie found Dan on the blind side of a ruck to trundle into the home 25. Good forward play managed to gain a few more metres to close on the Tetbury line. The home side seemed to have stemmed the tide but @theofficialharryjones had other ideas and burst through the defensive line to add a second Chobham try, Aran slotting the extras to make the lead 12-0.

Tetbury now went up a gear and Chob’ were forced into a rear guard action. Whilst the attacking play had looked a little short of practice there was no such problem defending their line as a series of attacks were held up in the red zone before a spill relieved the pressure with a hacked clearance to midfield. This led to a scrum and Chob’ were now more ruthless. Moving play wide to the wing play was back into the Tetbury 25. Strong rucking carried play close to the Tetbury line and it was Charlie who finished off with the third try extending the lead to 17-0.

Tetbury reacted well again, and a good kick chase forced a turnover and a penalty from the restart. A quick tap swept play into the corner close to the Chob’ line. Again the defence held out, but Tetbury recycled well and crossed over under the posts, making the half-time score 17-7 in favour of the visitors.

The coaches didn’t seem to be guiding the teams very well as the third period also started off with a bit of a stalemate once more. Lewis had gathered the restart under pressure from Tetbury, winning a penalty, but play was centred between the two 25 yard lines. Tetbury broke out first earning a scrum on Chob’s 25, but nothing was created before as a turnover freed Rhys to show his speed and carry Chob’ up field to the Tetbury 25. The hosts couldn’t clear their lines and a couple of minutes later Callum ran the ideal line at a ruck for Harry to register an assist with the pass and Chobham were three tries ahead again, Aran slotting a good conversion from wide on the left.

Into the final period and Chob’ were starting to remember what use to work so well a couple of years ago. The fifth try was definitely the try of the game to that point. From a scrum around 20 yards out on the right hand side, it was quick hands along the line from Harry to Danny, Matt ran a great dummy line with the ball going to Saxon at 13. Aran came into the line from fullback before finding Rhys with a bit of space. He was able to dance between a couple of defenders and score in the corner. Aran once more slotted a good conversion to make the score 31-7.

Clearly the forwards were less than impressed with this score as they got into the act with a few minutes left. Tetbury had been putting the squeeze on in the Chob’ half but were pinged for holding on. Teo, who had been a livewire all game, got his hands on the ball and set off up field from a quick pen. Almost reaching the Tetbury 25 he looked to have run out of space but @theofficialharryjones had been racing up in support to take a pop and keep the forward momentum. By now Charlie was on hand and carried further goalwards and as the defence got to him it was Callum on his shoulder to finish things off with his second of the game.

The final moments were played out by two weary teams with the heat and Saturday night taking over. With time up the ref blew the final whistle and that was it, this year group were no more. What had started for some way back in September 2007 came to a close fourteen years later.

For some the next step is Uni rugby, and hopefully for others it will be senior rugby at Chobham. Several of the squad have already made their debut towards the end of last season. From the first festival at Cobham in 2009 to mini tour caravan tours, and on to junior tours to all of the home nations there has been some great rugby played and no little success over the years.

All the players, coaches, first aiders and parents who have spent countless Sundays cheering on the touchlines can be justifiably proud of the environment that has been created and the fun that has been had by all, on and off the pitch. It’s been a blast folks.

Tour Squad: Aran, Rhys, Saxon, Matt, Lewis, Danny, Harry, Billy, Charlie, Olly, Max, Callum, Harrison, Teo, Cooper, Tom, Ben, Dan, Samuel, Andy.
