Kingston 46, Bec Old Boys 13 (L)
After the disappointed of Cranleigh, K’s were relishing the opportunity to be back at Hook Road as they took on Bec Old Boys.
Kingston took an early lead with a penalty from skipper Ollie Clements and then shortly after extended the lead with a try through scrum half Charlie Kelly. Ryan Seymour broke through the line and a couple of tackles before neatly popping the ball off to Charlie for the first try of the day. A couple of cheap penalty were then conceded allowing Bec to claw back 6 points (10-6). K’s quickly bounce back with another try, this time prop Chi Kavindele going over from close range (17-6) giving Kingston a healthy enough lead heading into half time.

The Kingston scrum had been a huge weapon in the first half and it was again used to full effect shortly after the break. A scrum on Bec’s 5 metre line got moving quickly presenting number 8 Lewis Tucker with an easy dot down over the line (24-6).
K’s were in the mood and completely dominating the game in every way. A quick burrow from close range from Luke Burge extended the score to (31-6) and then Bec did eventually reply with something of their own. Some good pick and go’s from the forwards got them in under the posts (31-13).

K’s bounced back from the try quickly with some lovely play from the backs. Ross McTear broke the line before neatly looping a pass onto Sam Rolfe who put Connor Ashwin over in the corner (38-13). The scoring was over there, some nice hands from the forwards created some space out wide and when the ball was nudged through it was a foot race to the line. Charlie Kelly chased and an error from their fullback presented him with a second try for the day and deserved bonus point win for K’s (46-13).
Next up Kingston travel to Old Pauline’s looking to add another W and climb higher up into the top half of the league.

Saturday 28th October 2017
Kingston 20, O’Wellingtonians 14 (L)
Kingston continued their recent form at the weekend with a hard fought 20-14 win over 4th placed Old Wellingtonians. Midweek before the game it had been targeted as a must win game to build a platform for the upcoming fixtures before the Christmas break.

Kingston started slowly and because of that fell behind with an early penalty converted. Shortly afterwards a comedy of errors eventually resulted in OW’s walking over the line for the first points of the game (0-8). It wasn’t until about 20/25 minutes into the game that K’s decided they wanted to play some rugby and after a enormous amount of pressure camped on OW’s 5 metre line, the penalty count totted up and the referee had no choice to bin their centre for repeated offences at the breakdown. K’s made the most of that advantage and span the ball out win to put in Ross McTear over the line (7-8). Shortly after that Ollie Clements added another 3 points from the boot putting K’s ahead 10-8 at halftime.
Kingston started the second half much better than the first and were quickly ahead with some nice running from fly half Ollie Clements broke through a couple of tackles before popping the ball up to Ryan Seymour to go in under the sticks (17-8). A dip in concentration and lack of discipline over the next 10 minutes or so gave OW’s an easy way back into the game kicking two penalties and bringing the score to 17-14 with about 10 minutes left to play. Kingston again found another gear and found themselves further ahead with a successful penalty from Clements yet again (20-14) with about 5 minutes to play. OW’s threw everything they had at the Kingston defence in the later stages of the game but a brilliant defensive effort across the board kept them at bay to secure a well deserved 20-14 victory.

Woking 2ndXV 15, Kingston Saxons 12 (L)
The Saxons travelled to Woking with only 13 players due to some late call ups to the 1xv and withdrawals.
The match started 14 vs 13 with Kingston Kicking off through Chris Ward. The ref was quick to stamp his mark on the match, blowing up for multiple infringements against Kingston, which led to Woking heading down field using their big ball carrying forwards. Despite strong defensive work by Kingston, Woking managed to squeeze over for the first try of the game putting the score at 5-0. Shortly after the restart, Kingston where back in their own 22 and were soon down to 12 men after a high tackle, 10yards from the try line. 14 vs 12 should have been there for Woking to run up the score, but considering the shortage of players Kingston defended well and leaked penalties out of Woking. Unfortunately, both long range kicks were missed. Just before half time, with Kingston back up to 13 players, man of the match Luke Davis took a lovely line to slice through weak tackling to score in the left hand corner. 5-5. Half time.

Confidence was spreading within the Saxons squad in the 2nd half, with telling hits and great scramble defence making life hard for Woking’s ball carriers. Only due to a lack of concentration, a Woking forward snuck over after a tap penalty 5 yards out. 12-5.
5 mins later a harsh yellow card for Kingston’s, Luke Davis 14v12 again. The next score came with Luke back on the field, he had spent all day stealing Line outs and once again caused Woking to tip the ball on with ball bouncing nicely to Kev Davies, mismatch spotted he skipped between two props and then a 60m foot race with the fullback with only one winner, try under the post 12-12. Unfortunately, with no time on the clock Kingston gave away a penalty 30m out, with the last kick of the game the ball struck the inside of the post and bounced in. 15-12 Woking. Score line not what the Saxons wanted but the boys went home proud of how they played. Strong mentions to Luke Davis and Alfie Foskett for their defensive efforts.

Reeds Weybridge 27, Kingston 12 (L)
After a weekend out of action, the 1XV travelled to league leaders Reeds Weybridge at the weekend looking to cause a huge upset. The coaches message before the start had been to find the aggression and nastiness that has been expected of Kingston over the years, but missing so far this season.
Reeds were coming off the back of three consecutive 50+ points wins in the league, but that was not happening against a much improved Kingston side. Reeds took an early lead through a penalty but that was short lived. After a long spell of pressure from K’s, Aidan Hamilton went in from close range to score on his debut back since the injury he picked up in round 1. Kingston dominated for much of the first half as the Reeds pack struggled to live with the aggression of K’s scrum, however they did go over for a try shortly before the half time whistle and took a narrow lead into half time.
The second half half was much like the first, dominance in the collision and at scrum time. Despite that some lovely backs play from Reeds saw them go over twice before K’s replied with a  series of strong scrums on the oppositions 5-metre which eventually resulted in a penalty try.
Reeds went over once more when the ball was dislodged in the tackle as we attempted an attack. A late flurry of attacks from Kingston could have resulted in a yellow card as Reeds repeatedly infringed at the breakdown, however the ref decided otherwise. Despite all the pressure coming from Kingston in the last 10 minutes they could not break the deadlock to pick up their third try and a loosing bonus point, the final score ended 27-12.

Kingston Saxons v Wimbledon 4thXV (L) POSTPONED DUE TO INJURY
T
he Saxons took on Wimbledon at the weekend looking to pick up their second win in as many games. Despite a fairly good start, some missed tackles put the Saxons under some extreme pressure which eventually resulted in Wimbledon scoring two tries in quick succession.
Unfortunately later in the game, a freak accident resulted in the referee deciding to abandon the match.
Kingston Marcus chipped a bone in his neck whilst attempting a tackle, which resulted in him being knocked out. We wish him all the best on the recovery.

Farnborough v Kingston (Junior Vase) HWO

Saturday 7th October 2017
Kingston 36, Economicals 29 (L)
After a slow start to season Economicals at Hook Road was targeted as a must win game. Kingston came out of the blocks fast with various passages of play putting E’s under a huge amount of pressure. That pressure eventually paid off with Connor Ashwin crashing over from close range. Economicals replied quickly with a try of their own before Kingston added a second through centre Sam Rolfe. K’s pushed on from there, dominating large periods of the half, and eventually added a third through scrum half Charlie Kelly. Some good link up play and a nice kick through from fly half Ollie Clements was again nudged on by Charlie Kelly before grounding it over the try line. A lapse in concentration allowed E’s to cross over for their second just before half time.

Kingston started the second half as they did the first with some lovely build and play and quick thinking from Ollie Clements leading to the fourth of the day. Clements pin point cross field kick put winger Joshua Allen over in the corner. A sloppy passage of play was to follow that with a stray pass being kicked through allowing E’s to pick up their third and a much needed morale boost. It wasn’t long before they went over again after a good catch and drive from a line out on Kingston 5 metre line.

The last 15 minutes was as physical as the whole game had been with both teams looking for a breakthrough. It would be K’s that made that break with another bulldozing run through E’s defence by centre Connor Ashwin to give Kingston the lead. Some dogged defence in the last 10 kept the away side at bay, as Kingston recorded a BP win.

Kingston ClubXV 18, Teddington 19 (Trial)
Was great to have rugby return to Hook road yesterday in what turned out to be impressive first outing for senior squad as they took on Teddington RFC. The result didn’t go our way with 18-19 loss but the performance from the lads really did show all the hard work that has been put in since June.
Try’s came from Luke Burge, Charlie Kelly, Juan Viera and Olly Day was voted man of match.

This year will see Kingston RFC host Raynes Park in the annual Dan Turner memorial game on the 2nd of September, more details to follow.
