CHINNOR left Devon with mixed emotions after drawing 10-10 with Plymouth Albion.

Trailing by seven points with 11 minutes to go, winger Sam Yawayawa scored a late try and fly-half Laurence May converted from the touchline as they shared the spoils.

The Thame-based side have slipped to sixth in National League 1, but are only eight points behind new leaders Rosslyn Park.

Director of rugby Matt Williams was pleased with elements of the performance, but felt his side could have returned with a victory.

“I’m proud of the boys, but at the same time we were our own worst enemy,” he said.

“We defended very well. Obviously after the second half (against Sale) last week, we had a big defensive focus (for the Plymouth game) and the boys fronted up.

“It was a game on a very heavy pitch that became a territory battle and I felt we were in control even though the scoreboard wasn’t moving.

“They had one major attack and scored from it after our mistake.

“Once again, we’ve got to learn that we let the opposition score through our errors which is frustrating.

“But we showed unbelievable composure to bring the scoreboard level and with four minutes to go, camped in their half, I thought we were going to at least pull a penalty, but it wasn’t to be.”

Chinnor return to Kingsey Road this weekend when they host Cambridge, bidding to make it five games unbeaten.
