Wanderers start season with a win on the road!
By Alex Inch
The Wanderers beat local rivals Bicester 20-36.
The wanderers were a little rusty and found the scrums, rucks and mauls difficult. However while they just about gained parity upfront, their backs had the better of their opposition.
Both teams scored 4 tries in the first half, Banbury edging ahead due to the kicking of James Blake leading 24 to 20 at half time.
A strong second half saw Banbury score three more tries, one converted by James Blake. Which left the wanderers worthy winners at full time 36 to 20.
Banbury’s try scorers were Robbie Cooke, Martyn Evans, Josh Parousis, Alex Morris, Russell White and Charlie Mallock.
Bicester voted for our top three performers
1. Robbie Cooke (Man of the Match)
2. Alex Morris (who played brilliantly at 9)
3. Charlie Mallock (who played brilliantly at 8 and will be missed when he goes back to Uni)
