Somerset Division Three South

Wyvern 2nd xv 45pts Chard 3rd xv 19pts

A somewhat mature Chard xv felt that Wyvern were rather an unsporting outfit in that they had too many younger players who were fit and fast!! Not in the true spirit of rugby at this level of the game!
Chard had the experience however and this know how managed to keep Wyvern at bay for long periods.
The visitors had much of the play in the opening half but conceded four tries before the break when they were unable to contain their hosts when they did attack.
Chard full back Gavin Watts tackled well and it was appropriate that he was the one who got over the line to get a try for his team just before the break after good possession from Andy Whitehouse
H/T Wyvern 26pts Chard 5pts.
Chard had a very good start to the 2nd half when they managed to keep the ball tight for some time.
Didi Downs sneaked over for a well worked try from a set piece move and then Mike Farthing showed he had lost none of his pace over ten metres to storm over for Chards third try. Kev George converted both.
With Chard tiring Wyvern again used pace to break through the Chard defence to score three tries in the final quarter, two of which were converted to run out comfortable winners.
A splendid afternoon for all concerned with Chard beating their opponents to the bar by a distance!
