OA’s (average house price – lots) hosted Ampthill for this HML Division One decider. OAs had the height and weight advantage in the pack, and used this to good advantage in the set pieces, but intense defending on both sides kept the first half scoreless. OAs had a try disallowed for a forward pass, and Ampthill would have scored but for a wayward final pass, but overall neither side could claim domination.
The deadlock continued until 10 minutes from time, when OAs formed a driving maul from a line-out 8 metres from the Ampthill line, which with their weight advantage and a slippery pitch Ampthill simply could not stop. Ampthill tried to claw their way back and put themselves into positions from which it seemed they must score, but small errors and determined defending kept them out.
Ampthill had their chances in this match, but failed to convert them, and OAs finished as worthy winners.
