Comfortable victory for Hornets Colts
Hornets Colts defeated a strong Chepstow side 38-21 in their first match of the season.
HORNETS Colts welcomed Chepstow from across the Severn Bridge to a packed Nest and recorded a fine 38-21 victory.
Chepstow started strongly with a well-taken try and conversion was the result. Hornets hit back through Bate, whose slight of hand found Hill, who finished in style, converted by Humphris.
Hornets now were firing on all cylinders and a series of penalties got Hornets near the Chepstow line, when Aplin set up Hartley for the pack to push him over for another try, converted by Humphris. Chepstow replied with two well-taken tries to go into the lead at the break.
After the break, surging runs got Hornets close. Another penalty quickly taken by Constable found Richardson at pace and he drew the defence to allow Bate to dive over.

Chepstow were now tiring and making mistakes and the Hornets capitalised. Blake Williams stole a ball at the scrum and found Richardson, who fed Francis to scorch over.
