WORCESTER CAVALIERS 19 WANDERERS 41 Sixways provides another five points for the Wandies

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Wanderers keep their clean sheet and bag themselves another five league points after a brilliant six-try effort against Worcester Cavaliers at Sixways.

Though Stephen Myler sent an early penalty through the sticks, it was the home side that had the first real chance of the game but a fumble lost the Cavaliers that shot and the Wanderers made no mistake with their first chance.

Getting close with a brilliant Myler kick to touch, the Wandies made it close with a maul before Api Ratuniyarawa decided to go it alone and charged the last few metres across the line.

After Sam Olver missed a shot at the posts for the home side, Myler soon earned the away side an attacking lineout and the Wanderers made the most of their territory, mauling over the line with Charlie Clare dotting down at the base.

The Cavaliers soon found themselves a man down, repeated infringements at the scrum seeing Jonah Boyce heading for the sin bin. The Wanderers quickly made the most of their extra man and were setting for a scrum within the home side’s 22 moments later. Dominating in the scrum, as they had all night, the referee, Matt Turvey, was soon trotting under the posts to award the Wanderers another seven points and end the half.

The Wanderers got straight back on the attack after the break and a brilliant line from Nafi Tuitavake set up Tom Kessell up for an easy run in under the sticks, with Myler adding the simple extras too.

The home side did eventually get on the scoreboard at the hour point. Sending two successive mauls over the whitewash, ten minutes adrift, they brought the game back within two scores.

But the Wanderers were straight back on the offensive and sent two quick tries of their own over. First Alex Mitchell cut a brilliant line before offloading to Matt Beesley for the score, then the replacement scrum-half crossed himself moments later after another ankle breaking run.

The Cavaliers had the last word on the game with a consolation score through Tom Dodd but the Wanderers had already done more than enough for another full quota of league points.
