EDF Junior Vase 3rd Round
18.10.2008 Uxbridge 31 – Mitcham 56
Uxbridge: 31
Tries: Michael Weymouth x2 (10 points), Tony Bailey x2 (10 points), Tom Hall-Jones
Cons: Michael Weymouth x3 (6 points)

Despite losing again the Uxbridge 1st team left the field this week feeling much better about their performance; knowing that they'd played probably the best side they'll play all year and still scored 5 great tries.
Mitcham have had a great start to their season, currently top of the table in their Surrey based league after two games.
Not long after kickoff Uxbridge began conceding points; down by 21 points and forced onto the back foot for most of the first half.
Uxbridge remained in contention at half time, but the predominantly antipodean born visitors racked up their winning score line without Uxbridge ever looking as though they would overcome their poor start to the match.
Winger Tony Bailey has come back from his broken thumb and hamstring injuries well and scored a fine brace of tries.
Michael Weymouth cemented his place as Uxbridge’s top try scorer this season with a fine brace of his own.
Captain Mark Mason said that he couldn't fault any of his team mates, was impressed by the attitude shown and is hoping to take the positives into their next league game away at Old Haberdashers next weekend.

18.10.2008 Old Abbotstonians 7 – Uxbridge II 48
Uxbridge II: 47
Tries: Jamie Flindall, Phil Carsen, Daniel Oliver

The Uxbridge 2nd team finally got their first win of the season.
Traditionally considered the club’s biggest derby match, despite perhaps St Nick’s Old Boys being the closer club geographically, this win over Old Abbot’s has boosted morale across the whole club.
Jamie Flindall, Phil Carsen and Daniel Oliver scored all of tries between them, but it was the over all team performance that gave Uxbridge their emphatic win.
