Camelot continued their good form with a 32-15 home win over Chiswick.

It was Chiswick who made the brighter start of the two sides and raced into a 10-0 lead, but Camelot responded well.

The forwards secured possession and drove towards the Chiswick line, before number 6 Charlie Richards collected the ball at the back of a ruck and crashed over to score a good try, which narrowed the score to 5-10 after 27 minutes.

From then on, the home side piled pressure on the opposition and won a penalty which they kicked for a lineout five metres from the visitors’ line.

The Camelot forwards worked an excellent catch and drive move from the lineout, before prop Joe Cox seized the ball and dived over the line to level the score at 10-10 after 36 minutes.

Camelot kicked off at the start of the second half and launched a strong attack into the opposition 22.

Winger Ross Willoughby broke away from the back of a ruck with Camelot forwards in support, and dived across the line to score a try which full-back Alex Wilby converted to give the home side the lead at 17-10 just two minutes into the half.

And with the wind well and truly in their sails, Camelot extended the lead shortly afterwards.

The home side won a scrum on half-way and then a penalty outside the opposition 10 metre line which Wilby kicked to put his side 20-10 ahead.

And the next home try arrived minutes later. Number 8 Hadyn Morgan collected the ball and fed Willoughby who sprinted towards the line, before off-loading Richards who crashed across for his second score of the match.

And the win was wrapped up when inside centre Daniel O’Brien received the ball and broke through the defence to score a good try which stretched the side’s lead to 32-10, 33 minutes into the half.

Chiswick bagged a consolation score, but it did not take the gloss of the win for Camelot who gained a bonus point and climbed to fourth place in the league.
