Brilliant run for the Ks
Action from Keynsham RFC's closely fought home victory over Thornbury
AFTER a really positive performance away to Sidmouth, despite the loss, Keynsham RFC hosted Thornbury at home in a hotly contested clash.
Thornbury arrived at Crown Fields having spent most of the season so far near the top of the table. However, a gutsy and defence-led performance secured the home side the 20-18 win.
Keynsham’s next game was away at Bridgwater - historically always a difficult place to go, where they had not won for a number of years. However, an excellent performance defensively, combined with the pack dominating their opponents, meant Keynsham left with 4 points and nilled Bridgwater at home for the first time in many years (27-0).
Most recently, K hosted local rivals Chew Valley, in a home fixture that had to be played at Lockleaze sports centre ground due to the floods. A fantastic and high-scoring performance (43-32) saw Keynsham take the full 5 points.
This recent run of victories left Keynsham sitting 9th in the table with 44 and with still a game in hand.
