Ross on Wye 24 v 12 Cirencester

RFU Junior Vase Cup: Round (2)

After playing Ross last week at home in the league and Ciren winning with a productive performance, this week Ciren travelled to Ross to play in the second round of the RFU Junior Vase Cup. The weather conditions were very wet throughout, and in such conditions the platform would be a critical element to allow control in the game.

It was Ross who gained the control throughout with the pack dominating the scrums and the contact area. With a scrum the near to the Ciren line, the Ross forwards powered forward, crashing over to score 7-0. This sparked the Ciren side into life and from a well won lineout the ball was moved into the mid-field with powerhouse winger Ben Ramsey coming of his wing to score under the posts, with the conversion kicked by Joe Hammond 7-7.

The game then became scrappy and disjointed, with Ross always having the upper hand physically ensuring field position. With the pressure always on the Ciren eight, penalties were conceded, making the half time score 13-7 following two further penalties kicked by Ross.

The theme of the first half continued with Ciren always struggling to get any fluency into their game. Ross scored their second try after being camped deep into the Ciren territory for some time 24-7.

As in the first half, Ciren then hit back from this latest setback to score out wide through Alex Hammond after some great possession rugby, with quick ruck ball creating space out wide to bring the score to 24-12, the conversion missed.

After entering the game with a lot of confidence from the previous week result, Ciren will be disappointed in this defeat and ending their run in the RFU National Cup. But this week will see them return to league action against Smiths away, another challenge but one this young squad will relish.

Longlevens 2nds 17 v 18 Cirencester 2XV

Cirencester 2XV had a great win on their travels to Gloucester to play Longlevens 2s in a friendly. In tough challenging conditions, the Ciren side battled to a much-deserved win, which will boost their confidence ahead their league game against Hucclecote 2nds this coming weekend.

Home Win for Cirencester 1XV

Cirencester 26 v 8 Ross-on-Wye

Cirencester began their first home Gloucester 1 league game in a confident mood after picking up an away win the previous week. They entertained Ross on Wye who themselves were on a significant winning streak. The game started in a frantic fashion with both sides trying to find a foot hold in the game, Ross were enjoying the larger percentage of possession, but were being thwarted by some stubborn home defence with Sean Beech and Tom Dykes to the fore. With not much ground being made Ross decided to kick for territory, the kick was fielded by the Ciren full back Zeb Waite who jinked his way to the try line with Joe Hammond adding the conversion 7-0.

As the first half continued the game become disjointed, with Ciren not being able to maintain pressure due to numerous penalties or losing possession at the line out. It was Ross who scored through a penalty making the halftime score 7-3.

The game needed someone to stamp their authority on proceedings, so Ciren gained confidence from scoring their second try through scrum half Sam Griffiths who intercepted a pass to race away 50m to score a great opportunist try, which Joe Hammond converted 14-3.

Ross, who proved a hard nut to crack for the Cotswold team, continued to battle away, punching holes in the Ciren defensive line. But with time running out for the away side, they began to kick for territory, with two such kicks not making touch and received by the eager by Ciren winger Seb Genillard who with pace and power crashed his way to the opposition try line, with these two destructive scores the result was confirmed, and five league points gained for the home side.

But to their credit Ross did have the last say scoring a try of their own making the final score 26-8.

Post-match Ciren players and coaches realised that the performance was not a complete one, but a performance that was decided by some flashes of brilliance from the try scorers, backed up with solid performances from Ciren legend Alex Hammond, Oli Newman, and Ben Ramsey. These early season performances from Ciren have been full of endeavour and promise, but without the precision to make the display complete. Sitting one point off the top of the table at 9, DoR Andy Deacon said: “

“I am really pleased and encouraged by the two openers and see huge potential to build a solid presence in the league. We have good numbers and attitude at training with coaches, Luke and Harry, and selection discussions from a squad with increasing depth.”

Cirencester 2XV travelled to Everest Road to play Old Patesians Gentlemen and ran them very close only just losing by 13 to 17, with lots of positives to take into their next District League fixture.

This Saturday Ciren 1XV travel to play Ross again in a Cup game, while 2XV are away to Longlevens 2s in a friendly. Both teams will be hot-footing it back to the Whiteway for a #PubInTheClub evening showcasing the Anthony Joshua fight on Sky Box Office – free to members and just £5 for non-members.

Memorial Vets Game Headlines at Cirencester Beer Festival

Cirencester Vets v RLC Vets

GRAHAME BLAND MEMORIAL MATCH

Sunday 26 August 2018 at 2pm

The Royal Logistic Corps (Super) Vets will play Cirencester Rugby Vets on Sunday 26th August 2018. This match is a memorial and a celebration of the life of RLC colleague Grahame Bland who recently passed away. All proceeds raised on the day (for the rugby match and related merchandise) will be donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association in his memory.

The match kicks off at 2pm at Cirencester Rugby, and is a headline event on Sunday, as part of the club’s annual Beer Festival that runs from Friday evening across the bank holiday weekend and attracts people from all over the town. Entry is £5 per day or just £12 for a weekend pass!

The Beer Festival starts with music from our resident DJ John Fluff Newman, and a hog roast on Friday evening. On Saturday Cirencester welcomes Minchinhampton RFC in a pre-season game that kicks off at 2pm followed by live music, great beer and ciders and new for 2018, a gin bar! Doors open Sunday at noon for the Memorial game and more live music and a BBQ.

It is thought that over 50 RLC Vets will be attending to ‘roll on roll off’ during the memorial game and it promises to be a superb occasion, and a rugby reunion for many.

A RLC Memorial Shirt has also been produced which will be available for sale and help raise funds for the MND Association.
