CHINNOR will play two matches at the same time after reaching the Oxfordshire Cup final.

The cup holders, who beat Oxford Brookes University 39-6 on Monday night, will play either Henley Hawks or Oxford Harlequins in the final on Saturday, April 7.

This is also the date for their rearranged National 3 South West clash at Redingensians, but head coach Jason Bowers said Chinnor will relish the double-header.

“We are looking forward to playing both fixtures,” said Bowers.

“The league game is very important, but likewise is retaining the Oxfordshire Cup.

“We will be putting out squads that will be capable of winning both fixtures. It shows our strength in depth.”

Redingensians and Chinnor now both have a free Saturday on March 17 after the Berkshire club were awarded a victory for their abandoned match against Old Patesians.

Bowers said: “If the league ask us to move the match, then we’ll consider it, but we are quite happy with where it is.”

Two tries from Tom Gray helped Chinnor defeat Brookes on Monday.

Despite fielding a second team, the hosts were too strong for the students, who featured Chinnor No 8 Liam Gilbert.

Brookes’ Rory Davies slotted two penalties, either side of a Chinnor penalty try converted by fly half Will Millett.

Millett added a penalty himself and converted a second penalty try as Chinnor’s superior scrum wreaked havoc.

Gray (2), Guy Hackshaw and Sam Ludgate crossed in the second half, with Millett converting one.

Henley host Quins on Tuesday, March 13.

Chipping Norton entertain Blue Boar in their Oxfordshire Shield semi on Sunday.

The remaining last four tie sees Gosford All Blacks host Littlemore on March 17 or 18.
