MATCH REPORT: Clifton served victory over Wimbledon

3 months ago By Sam Harrison

Clifton Rugby come away victorious after facing Wimbledon RFC. FT 25-20

While Clifton dominated both the scrums and line out the result was largely determined by some individual moments of brilliance. Ultimately the Dons showed themselves to be an athletic team with a never say die attitude who deserved their losing bonus point. Clifton will have some frustrations about not securing the victory before the final quarter.

The opening score was Charlie Hubert’s try as his kick and chase was followed by crafty weaving to cross with Chris Levesley converting. Leversley was constantly inspiring his backs with Hamish Renwick running the impressive Clifton line out.

Wimbledon broke well for Dan Cheers to score with James Doe converting. Levesley’s break then gave the elusive Callum Roberts the chance to speed over and he extended the Clifton lead after the interval when scrum half Mitch Spencer took a quick penalty

The Dons hit back with a Doe penalty and well taken try by Sam Waltier with Doe converting. A tense last quarter ended with an exchange of penalties between Doe and Levesley with Clifton holding on to win.

The Clifton forwards will take great satisfaction from their dominance in their scrums ,the ground made in their rolling mauls and the impressive line our performance. Their talented backs will take opportunities when presented. The Dons showed their resilience in the final stages of this encounter and this quality will stand them in good stead with some tough games to come.
