City pay the price for starting too slowly

Milton Keynes’ patchy start to the season continued on Saturday as they went down 38-15 to High Wycombe.

After picking up an excellent win last week against Gosford All Blacks, City couldn’t back it up with another strong performance, and were behind after just five minutes as Wycombe scored their first try of the afternoon.

MK lost skipper Ben Fisher to injury, and things only got worse as the home side ran in two more tries to take a comfortable 21-0 lead at the interval.

Running in another unconverted try early in the half, Wycombe were in control but MK got on the board when Andy Poole scored.

Wycombe scored again before Niall Mackenzie took MK to double figures.

There was still enough time for two scores as Wycombe scored almost immediately, but MK answered back with another unconverted try for Lewis Barnett, cutting through the Wycombe midfield, but it was a consolation.
