Stow suffer after making wholesale changes

Evesham Editorial 16th Feb, 2017   0

A STUTTERING start from a much-changed line-up meant a tough challenge got even tougher for Stow in a 57-12 defeat at High Wycombe in South West Division Southern Counties North.

Stow again had to make several changes and for the first 25 minutes they played like strangers to each other as they conceded three early tries.

Gradually, Stow started to put pressure on the home pack and scored under the post through captain James Holmes.

More scrum pressure allowed Lewis Chapman to add a second try to lead 31-12.




Stow needed to score first in the second half but Wycombe grabbed the next score with a converted try on 50 minutes and then another try from their right winger who beat two tackles before adding two further tries in the final 10 minutes.

On Saturday, Stow entertain league leaders Marlow.
