THE Bredon boys were all fired up as they had not played for a few weeks.

They forced a turnover and the ball was passed to Angus Wayman, who flew up the line but was forced into touch five metres out.

The line-out was won by Bredon and a subsequent drive formed a ruck and stayed strong.

The ball was fed through to Matt Oliver, who got over the line to score and convert.

Bredon continued to be strong at the restart and another try was converted by Chay Hawkins.

Hucclecote then seemed to wake up and started stringing some good passages of play together, but big tackles from Oliver and Wayman stopped them scoring.

Hawkins got another try, which was converted by Oliver, in the second half.

This spurred Hucclecote on who forced errors from Bredon's forwards, who for a short time were not scrumming as well.

They fed the ball through the backs and scored a well-deserved try.

Oliver restarted and put the ball inch perfectly into Hucclecote's territory.

Freddie Thomas won the line-out and was over the line to score.

Hucclecote kept their cool and put some good pressure on Bredon's line, and if it was not for great teamwork from Bredon's defence they would have scored.

Eventually Bredon's defensive work paid of, the ball was turned over and Oliver went for a run along the length of the pitch to score.

Bredon again were strong at the restart, and some great rucking and tackling from Gambler forced Hucclecote to make mistakes and only a high tackle stopped him.

But from the penalty he showed his speed and strength and flew over to score.

Bredon scored three more, with Hucclecote pulling one back.
