Old Bs sting Keynsham
KEYNSHAM Tries from Ben Newman and James Hurrell- Smith were in vain for Keynsham as they were soundly beaten 40-13 at Old Bristolians.
Number eight Newman touched down in the first half after Old Bristolians had taken the lead through a penalty and had a man in the sin-bin.
Ben Bolster was narrowly wide with the conversion but then slotted a penalty after a raking kick from defence by debutant fly-half Tom Weadon.
Thereafter, Keynsham's play became error-strewn and their discipline dropped. A converted try just before half-time put Old Bristolians 16-8 up and two interception tries helped them take the game out of the visitors' reach in the second period.

Old Bristolians notched up their fifth score of the game as Keynsham tried to rescue some pride and their efforts were rewarded when wing Hurrell-Smith touched down in the last ten minutes.
Keynsham 2nds were unable to build on their victory of the previous week as they lost 27-5 at home to Winscombe in Somerset Premier.
The hosts took the lead when flanker Rob Pyne and captain and scrum-half Nick Lloyd managed traffic at the back of a maul and the Keynsham pack showed great patience and composure to slowly but surely power their way over the line. Pyne dotted the ball down but Rob Breckon missed a relatively easy conversion.
Despite showing flashes of their true potential, Keynsham trailed 13-5 at half-time as Winscombe punished a 15-minute lapse of concentration with two soft tries and a penalty.
Two more followed in the second half as the Keynsham pack found itself on the back foot. The first came after 60 minutes from a stolen lineout and the second thanks to some good hands in the backs, which created an overlap.
Keynsham 3rds lost 36-3 at Hornets, with their only points coming from a John Pierce penalty.
The 4th XV saved Keynsham from another unwanted whitewash in a cracking 46-45 victory over Walcot 3rds.
The spirit of rugby was honoured as Keynsham lent under-strength Walcot a player to ensure a 14-a-side contest and referee Steve Barker did well to keep up with the scoring.
A 15-try feast saw the lead change hands frequently. Keynsham's match-winner was a splendid team effort and was finished off by the ageless Jon Bishop. Joe Robbins touched down four times, with Bismark duPlessis, and Liam Robbins also scoring tries.
