2nd xv v Olney 13th January 2018

Leighton Buzzard seemed up for this game from the moment they arrived at Olney and this was seen in the opening minutes of the game, when good work between forwards and backs resulted in Adam Stacey going over for the first of his two tries.  The forwards, led by Paul Greenway, were able to dominate in the scrums and lineouts, providing the backs with the ball Ollie Taylor need to orchestrate the backs outside him.  After a delay when the Olney fly half got injured, there were further tries in the first half from Jock, Nick Geoghegan, Kristian Hastings and Dan Baroux meant Leighton Buzzard led 29-0 at half time.


With the changes made at half time, it took a while for the Leighton Buzzard pack to settle, Olney had their best passage of play resulting in an unconverted try after Leighton Buzzard’s defence had kept them out for 15 minutes.  This score seemed to spark Leighton Buzzard back into life, with momentum created from Owen Forsyth and Dan Baroux’s rampaging runs through the Olney forwards, Leighton Buzzard managed to score two more tries through Adam Stacey and Ben Johnson.  Leighton Buzzard we fulling deserving of the 41-5 final score, with Adam Stacey picking the MOM award.
