The Shield of Buckinghamshire

I’ve been to Amersham Chiltern rugby union a few times this season as they’ve stomped over everybody in their division bar Newbury Stags.

Yesterday in the spring sun was the Bucks Shield final against Phoenix of Taplow.

And a decent match it was too. 8-5 at half time and it stayed that way through most of the second half as both teams defended their territory ferociously and attacks came agonisingly close to the decisive score before being snuffed out. Two late scores made it 20-5 at the death but it really was a lot closer than that.

Still they seem pleased.

Apparently Chiltern will be stepping up a level next season so hopefully there will be more games of this standard to point the camera at.

There were at least four ‘serious’ cameras in the crowd so there will be better photos out there. Mine are here – and see the top one large here.
