Playing down the slope Wellington started the better side and on eight minutes Jamie Hayman, making his first start for some time, found space on the wide outside and scooted over. Will Brewer added the extras.
Wellington were straight back onto the attack and when looked to have worked an overlap in the bottom corner, the Avon 10 deliberately knocked the ball on and was rewarded with ten minutes in the bin.
Wellington made the extra man advantage pay and it wasn’t long before scrum half Tim Jenkinson broke through and dotted down.
Ben Williams on the right wing was next on the score sheet collecting a bouncing ball to show good strength and speed to squeeze over.
Jamie Hayman, not to be out done by his opposite winger then scored again to make it 22-0 after twenty five minutes, and a cricket score seemed likely.
Avon then rallied and showed they were not prepared to just be the whipping boys and finished the half the stronger and well deserved their try after thirty eight minutes. Half time came with the hosts 22 – 7 up.
The second period saw Wellington score first as Williams scored his second under the posts. Brewer added the extras. A period of pressure from Avon followed which ended when they were awarded a penalty try.
Liam Phillips put the result beyond doubt however when he showed his dancing feet in midfield to score.The last play of the season again saw the Wellington back line outflank a now tiring Avon defence for Ben Gamlin to score.
Wellington have finished the season really strongly and they are now starting to bear the fruits of the many hours of work put in by the coaches and volunteers of the minis and juniors and colts sections, as nine of yesterday’s starting fifteen have come up through that system and have played colts rugby in the last three years. It was really rewarding to see the Hayman brothers starting in the 1st XV together for the first time.
