Cambridge Rugby Club see off Chinnor with Kwaku Asiedu in try-scoring mood

Kwaku Asiedu continued his positive National League One form so far this season during Cambridge’s 31-27 home victory over Chinnor at the weekend.

The winger ran in four tries as the hosts battled back from a 17-14 half-time deficit to extend their unbeaten run of form a Volac Park to 14 matches – a sequence that now dates back more than one year.

Speaking on the Steve Jackson podcast, Cambridge’s director of rugby Richie Williams said: “Park his try-scoring prowess for a moment, he’s definitely playing the best rugby I’ve seen him play.

“He looks really motivated to get his hands on the ball (and) his work-rate off the ball, he’s worked very hard on the defensive side of his game this season and we’re going on to see that in games.

“A firing Kwaku is a match for anybody at National One level.”

The victory has kept Cambridge second in the table, one point ahead of third-placed Sale and seven adrift of the league-leading Rams.

And Williams was particularly pleased with how his players bounced back from adversity at the interval.

“We’re really happy with that,” he added.

“The position we found ourselves in going into half-time, 17-14 down and with the wind at our backs, we asked for a response in the second half and for me that opening 15 or 20 minutes is probably the best that we’ve played this season.

“Huge credit to the players for executing what we spoke about at half-time and I think we fully deserved to get the five points against a battling Chinnor team.”

Cambridge will be on the road for the final time in 2022 on Saturday (December 3) when they travel to face Leeds Tykes.

The Yorkshire-based hosts, who play at The Sycamores, are currently third from bottom after winning just three of their opening 11 fixtures this term.
