Cambourne vs Wendens Ambo, 2016/17

Cambourne Exiles - 32 : 24 - Wendens Ambo

Minutes into the game big pressure from an energetic Cambourne pushed us into their 22 some creative play created a try from maul for Craigo then converted by Chris. Lovely attacking play after some good deep defence brought the game back to their 22 once again where we were comfortable spreading the ball to a well ran wing line from Tim, unconverted, to take us to 12-0

Unfortunate slips in defence with a man down injured let them through for a try and conversion.. 12-7

Unfortunate try effort held up from Craigo sprawled on his back created from some seriously strong scrummage from cambourne this continued with more strong scrummage pushing toward the try line with a break from Craigo toward the line and a slick offload to Scott for a try! Taking the score to 17- 7.

An unseen head butt toward a Cambourne player then instigated some fruity game play forcing a Red unto Josh Cox!
