Widden Old Boys 11

Painswick 5

WIDDEN Old Boys went into the Gloucester Premier Christmas break with a well-deserved win over Painswick – their fourth of the season.

The home side started well with big runs by centres Green and Evans battering the Painswick defence with a penalty the reward for their endeavours.

Danny Rudge kicked it from 35 yards for an early 3-0 lead and Widden kept up the pace and should have had two tries but bad handling in muddy conditions let them down.

Then, from a good run by second row Matt Folley who was eventually caught on Painswick's 22, Widden's pack came in and started to push Folley towards the line.

Second row Wayne O'Connor popped out with the ball and scored in the corner but the conversion was missed.

Painswick had chances of their own to score but again the conditions did not help them and they ended up dropping the ball.

Rudge kicked a second penalty to make it 11-0 to Widden at half time.

The second half saw both teams trying to run the ball but the conditions did not help them.

Just before the end Painswick managed a try in the corner from a missed tackle with the conversion missed to make the final score 11-5.

    Akadau, the Gloucester Rugby and Rupert Harden hating multi identity troll is clueless about every aspect of the game of rugby.

    Rupert Harden rules in the tight head position and dominates in the scrum. Let's hope he is fit for the weekend against Tigers. We don't want our scrum going backwards, like it did in that final scrum against Saracens, again.

    We've played 11 Premiership games, so far this season, Harden has started nine. Nigel Davies, the chap who earns his money from knowing what is what when it comes to rugby union, certainly knows which of his tight-head props is his first choice even if the clueless troll akadau is incapable of understanding that.

    It looks like the staff at his home for sad, lonely, irrelevant old men, didn't let the Gloucester and Rupert Harden hating multi-troll, akadau, into the computer room until late today. I wonder if they know that he spends all his time trolling.

    The DoR, Nigel Davies, knows that Harden is his top tight head; everyone else knows that Rupert is the best tight head at Glaws. The only one who thinks otherwise and thinks he knows more about rugby and the Gloucester Rugby players than Nigel Davies is the troll acadau.

    Harden.... 9 out of 10 starts in the Premiership. That is a fact attributable to him alone and to our knowledgeable DoR - Nigel Davies - who selects him to start.

    RUPERT HARDEN... Nigel Davies' selection as his first choice tight head. Not second or third but FIRST CHOICE.

    I find it hilarious the way that the Harden hating multi-troll has been caught into spending his time on here just posting meaningless, pointless and negative comments which he can't get out of doing because he doesn't have the strength of character.
