NAILSEA & Backwell’s home 
supporters were treated to a 17 try rout of Bath side Old Culverhaysians.

Winger Matt Watkins opened the scoring in the first minute with the 
first of his four tries, exhibiting 
excellent pace to outflank Old C’s defenders.

The bonus point came in the 15th minute when Chris Quinn broke the defensive line and outpaced the cover. A break from outside-half Tony Hill fed No 8 James Staley who showed good hands to put scrum-half James Sullivan free to score under the post to bring the half time score to 59-0.

There was no change after the break with the tries coming thick and fast. However, the most popular score of 
the day came when Nailsea prop Kev Quigley found himself clear with 20 metres to sprint in.

Although he never got on the 
scoreboard, man of the match went to Dickie Palmer for his tireless work rate around the park to construct many of the tries. Old C’s must be 
commended for their spirit as they never gave up throughout, despite going down to 14 men due to injury.

Try scorers were Matt Watkins (4), Chris Quinn, Jamie Sullivan (2), Alex Blackwell (3), Sam Brookbank (2), Rob Baker (3), James Staley and Kev Quigley. Tony Hill added 11 conversions with Rob Baker kicking two and Alex 
Blackwell one.

On Saturday, Nailsea are at home to Wiveliscombe at the West End Park.
