I made the trip down to watch the Camberley / Oaks game on Saturday. I would say that Camberley were certainly up for it and quite probably deserved the win. Oaks were a little flat, perhaps the Medway game had taken it's toll, and struggled to get into the game in large patches. Having said that, Oaks scored a good try with 7 minutes left on the clock, which would have taken them into the lead, which was initially awarded by the referee and then he changed his mind and said it was held up. Very strange as the ball was clearly seen on the ground. I was shown the video yesterday. The Camberley scrum certainly dominated throughout the afternoon, and the referee having decided rightly or wrongly (I think wrongly) to ignore the body angle of the Camberley loose head, had no choice but to award the penalty try. On Saturday's showing, Camberley will certainly test Medway and Brighton. It's all getting very exciting.
 
On a side note: This is a great league with some really excellent competition but it is being spoilt in large patches by poor officiating. I can assure you that the young gent at Camberley, despite what their match report says, was awful. He was so far out of his depth. It's not his fault, the young man is giving up his Saturdays, but is he being given enough support and training to meet the requirements of level 6 rugby? The game at this level is becoming more and more professional (certainly for some clubs!) but the referees are still the same standard they were back 20 years ago. The RFU need to wake up and look after the lower leagues in the same way they support the boys at the top.



Hi Kentishman,
Interesting points made, especially that 7Oaks were a bit flat compared to their last game vs Medway. I suspected it would be tough for them to face two tough games against opposition of Cam/Medways level. Camberley definitely looked fired up for it, with the physicality of both sides a step up on what I have seen from the other games in this league throughout the season so far (mainly Totts / Chi / Chobham). Both teams impressed in different ways, with 7oaks having a well drilled pack and a couple of dangerous outside backs (fullback in particular). Overall I thought Camberley deserved the win and if they could catch/pass the ball on the last pass in an attack they would even have got themselves a try bonus point!

Im not sure about your vantage point (or the video you have seen - can you share it?!) of the alleged 7Oaks try. I was stood by the deadball line and to my eye sight the ball was held up by at least 2 arms and was just short of the whitewash. A tough call either way for the ref, who I thought had a good afternoon with the whistle. He could have been harsher on either side, particularly for protecting the man in the air (something both teams equally infringed on), but overall kept the game flowing to its greater benefit. 

The yellow card to the Camberley 8 was a harsh call, again right in front of me as I was well placed for 7Oaks period of hammering at the try line in the second half, and was no more than a penalty from my understanding of the laws and the precedents set in the professional tiers of the game, with no force or danger posed to the attacking player. To my recollection it was the only high tackle of them game. Reading the Camberley match report I found it odd the scribe pointing out comments from the Sevenoaks support staff. I didnt hear them calling for anything, but I was on the opposite corner of the pitch to them for the majority of the match. Maybe it was from the good sized travelling supporters - a very good effort for them to have so many people with them!

I enjoyed watching the game and it was a great advert for the league. I'll be penciling in the Havant - Medway game for the end of the season if it remains this tight in the league!

Reading what you have written about the Camberley backs handling and the feedback from the Cobham v Camberley game it seems they may be struggling a little in this department?

Thoughts?

There were handling errors across a number of players, both forwards and backs, with simple passes dropped or not accurate. Is this a theme for them? It looked like they were keen exponents of total rugby with a number of their forwards always spread across the field with numerous involvements in wider moves and in the tramlines....sometimes hard to tell who were the forwards and who were the backs!

Cornish Simon, given your screen name, your occasion (slight) digs at LCRFC and/or Dickon is a tad surprising.

Yeah whats the beef? Not a disgruntled ex player perchance? I admire the Cornish culture and togetherness both in Rugby and County , Dickons accounts pretty much summate the action in an even handed manner, so whats not to like?

Best, Vuarnet

For my two penny worth, I have known Dickon for over 10 years and I've always been impressed by his approach to running a club and developing a nomadic club.

We definitely don't agree on our views on all clubs, but wherever we bump into each (even Sainsburys) we'll always have a good chat about our gorgeous game! 

Credit to the club, its not just Dickon who's a pleasure to spend time with at Little Kernow, I'll miss our boys playing them next season.
Rucks and mauls may bust my balls, but whips and chains excite me!!
