Gordano recorded an excellent bonus point victory at near neighbours Old Bristolians.
Gordano picked up their first points on the road with a bonus point win at local rivals Old Bristolians.
The game started badly for Gordano as old B’s were allowed to drive over the line with a maul that seemed to stop on numerous occasions. This did knock the confidence on the visiting players and soon they were ranking the points up at the other end.
Flanker Stuart Harris got the first try and a snipping run from hooker Zane Southey, the second was excellent support play from powerhouse Royce Chiddle and the third try was scored by captain Tom Arnall. All the tries were converted by Mike Dyer for a 5-21 half time lead.
In the second half, Gordano now playing up the slope needed to keep control of the game and with Toby Baxter bossing the forwards, Gordano were able to keep the ball for large periods.
As the half wore on, Od B’s tired and Gordano added two more tries though wing Jack Last and full-back Noah Homes-McAdam.
It was a great team display from all 18 involved, they had believe in what they were trying to do and got the rewards for the hard work they put in.
On Saturday, Gordano are home to Old Richians from Gloucester, kick-off 3pm.
