Cheltenham Saracens 41 v 0 Bream

Before this game had taken place Bream were seven places above the Sarries sitting third in the league, but with a victory the places were almost swapped with the Sarries moving to fourth in the table showing how tight the league is.

The game started brightly for the home side and was only minutes old when center Josh Pettifier picked up a loose pass from the bream fly half to race over for the first of the Sarries six try`s. This did not seem to settle the nerves though with next 25 minutes of the game being a scrappy affair, intill inspirational fly half MarcussLatchford taking the opportunity to take an interception on the half way line and race in untouched giving the Sarries a healthy 14 – 0 lead, the end of the first half finished in a fiery fashion with a yellow cards shown to Will Dove and the Bream 2nd row for some mister meaner`s and with the game deep into injury time Latchford slotted a superb penalty from the ten meter line to give the home side a 17 – 0 lead at half time.

After a half time team talk by head coach Pete Buxton the Sarries seemed to up there game and again like the first half it was not long before they got there third try after some great work by the forwards new Sarries signing James Taylor had crossed the line. As the game progressed the Sarries were showing signs of what a good rugby side they can be with excellent combining of forwards and backs and pace and strength, and it was the shear pace of full back Luke Stoneman that left the Bream deffence for dust to score out wide, with Latchford off the pitch young Paul Miles stepped up to take the conversion which sailed over, after this Breams heads went down and it was all Sarries for the rest of the game with captain Nick Hanby and wing Chris Wilkinson scoring the last two try`s to finish off what was a pretty much one sided game.
