Biggleswade made light work of Olney on Saturday, crushing them 36-7.

It took Biggie just three minutes to put the first points on the board, converting a try for a 7-0 lead. It was quickly opened to 10 points with a penalty kick.

Biggleswade managed to spoil a number of promising attacks when the passing in their backs resulted in balls dropped or knocked on.

It was a further 13 minutes before the home side added a try, following some poor tackling from Olney allowing the home side score under the posts to go 15-0 up at the break.

Olney started bright in the second half though, and Ollie Simmons scored between the posts, with Rich Cowan adding the extras to reduce the arrears to 15-7.

But Biggie came back and made sure Olney’s fight back was nipped in the bud, scoring to make it 22-7.

They increased the lead further when Olney were wrong footed by the home scrum half, who took the ball from a scrum round the blind side and ran half the length of the pitch to score a try and add the conversion. After 15 minutes of the half the home lead increased to 29-7.

Olney’s possible revival was dead in its tracks. Another converted try 23 minutes into the half extended the home side’s lead to 36-7.
