Chi stalwart Ben Polhill, one of those selected, said: “It was a great experience. We drew 29-29 with Oxfordshire with chi boy Ed Bowden scoring a last-play try to draw us level. Sadly we lost the trophy on try countback despite an unbeaten season.”

Other than Polhill and Bowden, Ben Robson also started – while Sean Shepherd, Ross Miller and Tom Belcher all came off the bench.
