Marlow 3rd XV End the Season on a High with a 38 - 10 Win - but pushed for 80 minutes

A close fought game in the balance for the first hour but a team effort saw the win.

Marlow went into this match with confidence after a good team win over local rivals Wycombe on the previous weekend. A hot afternoon started well with an early score by Matthew Goodright after 4 minutes and the 5-0 lead suggested that this was going to be an easy match. However, Marlow went back a gear and played some awful rugby, giving away possession too cheaply and not giving Windsor the respect that all teams deserve. Against the run of play, Chris Brook-Carter found himself on the end of a pass and with a great show and go, scored the second try on 27 minutes. This lead was reduced 7 minutes later when Windsor scored and converted to make it 10-7, which they took into half-time, not before Matthew Goodright sprinted over half the length of the pitch for a certain try but was tackled under the posts.

A few changes were made with strong words but Windsor were the fastest out the blocks and on 44 minutes took the lead with a converted try. 10-12. The lead only lasted for 2 minutes before youthful Robert McKee, scrumhalf for the day, kicked out the doldrums and scored a fine try, converted by Ben Hughes. On the hour, Marlow found the switch and started to play some good rugby with McKee scoring his second of his brace with Boris converting again. Kaz Rozputynski replaced Tom Dean in the centre and glided in for a silky converted try on 73 minutes to make it 31-12 and on the stroke of full time, Ben Smiley conjured up a "hero or zero" juggle of the ball which came worked and scored the last of six trys, converted.
Full time 38-12.
I'm delighted to let you know that the team celebrated hard with the majority of the team still going strong at the club house at 8.30pm, fueled by a selection of fine cigars supplied by Louis Kunzig.
