BICESTER produced a superb performance to see off High Wycombe 35-15.

The fine result, against a side in fourth place, saw them climb to eighth in the Southern Counties North table.

All five Bicester tries were scored by the forwards, Will Anns bagging a brace.

Wycombe took an early lead through Harry Tanner’s unconverted try.

But the hosts roared back, Andrew Faulkner touching down.

Josh Wordsworth’s penalty put Bicester ahead.

But the visitors regained the advantage when Bill Bickford scored.

However, it was the home side who took a 13-10 lead into half-time when Anns scored his first try of the game just before the break after good work from Ollie Dawkins.

Anns raced over for his second soon after the restart in half Bicester would go on to dominate.

Wordsworth was on target with another penalty, before from four successive scrums, Ollie Cassidy dived over for a try which Wordsworth converted.

Joey Siburn burst through for a fine try to extend the lead, Wordsworth again on target with his kick.

Although the final word went to Wycombe, who scored through Liam Dudley late on, Bicester had long since wrapped up the points.

Meanwhile, Banbury got their Oxfordshire Cup campaign off to a flying start with a 43-21 victory over Henley Bulls.

A hat-trick of tries from Tom Macdonald helped seal a big win for the defending champions.

Tom Burman, James Leonardi and Joe Mills also went over, with Ed Phillips converting five of their tries and adding a penalty.

Chinnor Falcons ran in seven tries on their way to a 41-7 win over Witney.

Tom Strathdee, Ryan Collins, George Grose, Rob Nicholls, Sam Angell, Paddy Dias and George Hope crossed at Hailey Road.

Witney played 50 minutes with 14 men after their right wing was

red-carded, but the visitors were already 15-0 in front at the time.

Oxford Harlequins beat Oxford Brookes University 29-20, having been 20-12 behind.

Allan Purchase (2), Rory Garrett and Ed Tolley scored tries with Garrett landing one conversion and Dan Todd two, as well as a penalty.
