The Camberley match programme refers to this league fixture against 'Cam' as the first in living memory although there have been some cup matches
Sitting third in the table and having secured high scoring wins against local rivals Chobham and Hove in recent weeks Cobham knew that this game would be a hard fought contest.
With seven changes to the squad following last weeks close defeat to Medway Cobham started well and within 5 minutes Buffini playing out of position at centre burst through the home side back line to collect a kick ahead from Farrelly to open the score 0-5 becoming 0-7 with Farrelly converting. Cam enjoy strong support along the touch line and there was some shock evident that Cobham had opened the scoring with some ease.
Cam regrouped and benefited from an infringment to secure a penalty converted by Matt Smart 3-7 but within minutes Farrelly had responded for an offside 3-10.
Camberley enjoyed the advantage in the scrums and it was only quick ball that allowed Cobham to benefit on their put in but turnovers were consistent and with a penalty awarded a 5 metre line out enabled Cam to secure the ball and captain Josh Watson went over for a converted try 10-10 scores level
From the restart Cam came again and strong running from hooker Dylan Emerton created space and back row Alex Hughes crossed and Smart converted 17-10
Cobham were now on the back foot but for the remainder of the first half they had more of the possession and territory and but for some inconsistency in their line out could have drawn level. There was a blistering charge by Tom Davison and McQuade always looked dangerous and it certainly needed a strong defence from Camberley to avoid the score.
Cobham needed the next score to stay in touch but with Hughes scoring his second after a strong run and Smart converting 24-10 looked to be a crucial gap and it was extended when a penalty sailed over 27-10
This was were Cobham showed their fight clawing their way back into Cam territory and using the same kick ahead that won them their first try this time winger Tiernan White outpaced his oppostion to score in the corner 27-15. Farrelly then kicked possibly the bet judged conversion of the season judging the wind to perfection even if he did need a cross bar for support 27-17
Cam collected a penalty to go 30-17 and from the restart brother Josh Wright put Ash over 35-17. That could have disheartened Cobham but showing great spirit they responded with Tiernan White's second try 35-22 and although Cam finished the scoring with a further try to run out 42-22
