Nailsea & Backwell head coach Tony Hill said it is "exciting" to his group of players figure out how to break down teams during the game after his side maintained their perfect start to the Counties 1 Tribute Western North season with a 40-3 win against Old Bristolians last Saturday.

Before the game a two minute silence for Remembrance Day was immaculately observed by both sides at West End Park.

The Ravens started with the famous slope in their favour but struggle to get going and it was the visitors who took the lead through a Jonny Waugh penalty. 

However, Nailsea hit back and on his 150th first team appearance Jack McCormick dotted down for the opening try converted by Alex Jones.

It was Jones the centre of a controversial try next, when Jamie Sullivan kicked through and the referee deemed Jones was impeded and a probable try would have been scored so a penalty try for the Ravens awarded.

Nailsea gave away a number of penalties but their defence was resolute and when they got the ball back in Old Bristolians territory, captain Luke Sharp powered over to make the half-time score 19-3.

Facing the elements the Ravens regrouped at half time and talked about cutting the penalties out and carrying hard in difficult conditions.

After several 5m scrums Jamie Sullivan tapped and went over for the bonus point try which Alex Jones converted. 

And It was Jones who scored the try of the game when Jamie Wood glided outside the Old Bristolians defence to offload to the supporting Jones for the try of the game which he converted before  Ben Perfect picked off a pass to run in from 50m to round off the scoring and make it nine straight wins.

Hill said he was delighted with his side's performance against Old Bristolians and their patience to get the job done. 

"Old Bristolians defended bravely to a man, so I’m really pleased with how patient we were," he said.

"It’s exciting to see this group of players figure out how to break down teams during the game. A very satisfying win against a good side."

This Saturday Nailsea & Backwell are on the road as they travel to Barton Hill hoping to continue their 100 per cent start to the season.
