Wrongs righted as hosts feel a Sarries backlash
OLD COLSTONIANS 10 CHELT SARACENS 49
SARACENS were itching to set the record straight from the deflating defeat to Newent.
And with conditions ideal for running rugby they started in superb fashion.
The deadlock was broken when Sam Rimmer surged over the line for the opening try that was duly converted for a 7-0 lead.

The Sarries did not let up, and the intensity of the play soon resulted with an opportunity for winger Dan Hammond to dive over the whitewash.
Old Colstonians did their best to hit back and they engaged Saracens in a tough midfield battle of attrition.
But their only reward was a penalty as Saracens again took control, and after some hard graft from the forwards Gareth Rogers steamed over to score a well worked try to make the score 19-3.
Colstonians were not finished there however, and made an impressive break which was finished off by their fly half, who duly converted to make the score 19-10 at the break.
But if the first half was close on the scoreboard the second half turned out to be a one-team show. With some fantastic rugby, mixed with guts and determination, five more tries were added to the score.
Rimmer, Hammond and Rogers all ran in another one each, with Harris' boot adding two penalties and four conversions.
