DAN George has pleaded with Chinnor to cut out the nerve-jangling finishes.

The Oxfordshire side needed a 75th-minute try from Jason Worrall to earn a 32-29 victory over Bishops Stortford in their latest National League 1 encounter.

The dramatic conclusion came just seven days after Chinnor conceded in the last play of the match to lose at Rams.

And the head coach admitted everyone connected with the club had been put through the mill in the last fortnight.

George started the game at hooker, but was replaced at half-time and was forced to watch the entire second 40 minutes from the sidelines.

“We don’t do things by halves,” he said.

“It was very tense, I’m not the best of watchers at the best of times, but it was very good to get the result.”

Chinnor had already secured the four-try bonus point, but needed to dig deep to score a fifth late on, before defending resolutely to see out the final moments.

They had led 14-0 and 27-19, but the Hertfordshire visitors’ free-flowing game proved tough to keep at bay and the visitors were 29-27 ahead with ten minutes to go.

But George was pleased with the way his side stood firm to ensure they were not beaten late on for the second time in as many games.

“A couple of penalties at the end allowed them to get some territory, but I felt our defence really held up,” he said.

“We made our tackles, we made our chops, made them play a bit and then the knock-on gave us the scrum and the referee blew the full-time whistle.”

The victory lifted Chinnor to seventh in the table and head coach George was thrilled to overcome a notoriously tough opponent, who had won eight of the last ten meetings between the sides.

“It was a really good result,” he said.

“We don’t tend to go well against Bishops Stortford, they did the double over us last year.

“So to get the win is important, but to get that bonus point try as well is massive.

“It was a very close game and to come out on the right side was worth its weight in gold.”
