Weston-super-Mare claim big win over Avonmouth Old Boys
Two tries from No 8 George Sparks and centre Sylvan Edwards helped Weston-super-Mare take maximum points and a 50-11 win from their trip to Avonmouth Old Boys.
The win keeps the Seasiders in third place in the National Three South West table, but the defeat for league newcomers Avonmouth leaves them just two points above the relegation zone and their next five league games are against sides in the top half of the table.
Avonmouth held the lead briefly after penalties from full-back Joe Wearne either side of the first of Weston’s seven tries through full-back Ross Bennett.
Weston went in to the break 16-6 ahead following the first Sparks’ tries but fly-half James Mackay was off target with the conversion attempt before landing two penalties.

The next quarter was all Weston with a rare try from lock Ash Russell plus touchdowns from Edwards and Sparks with Mackay kicking two of his three conversion attempts.
Avonmouth’s only points of the half came just after the hour with a try in the corner from replacement wing Chris Hamilton. Weston replied with a Mackay penalty and the conversion of a touchdown from replacement James Arnold.
The visitors completed the rout with Edwards crossing for his second eight minutes from time.
Chippenham made it five home wins out of seven this season with a 44-14 victory over struggling Oxford Harlequins who have yet to record a victory on the road this season.
The visitors are attempting to avoid the drop with further recruitment and amongst the new signings that started was tighthead prop Jon Direen who was on the bench for Oxford University in the Varsity match last month.
Chippenham out-scored their visitors seven tries to two. Scrum-half Ryan Surry claimed a hat-trick and openside flanker Frazer Clilverd crossed twice.
The other try scorers were centre Rupert Crockett and flanker John Boddington with Sam Saunders licking three conversions and a penalty.
