HIS NAMESAKE may have been a rock god with The Who, but it was Chiswick RFC newcomer Pete Townsend who was hitting all the right notes on Saturday.
The left winger impressed with some sound running and bagged the final try as London Four NW leaders Chiswick won 21-7 at Datchworth.
But it was Al Pickering who put them in front after the home side had missed a penalty, picking up superbly to force his way over in the corner.
The wind got the better of Tom Duffy's kick, which meant when Datchworth converted their equalising try they took in a half-time lead.
Chiswick soon took control with the wind behind them after the break, and Duffy got his sights right with a long-range penalty to regain the lead.
Enter Townsend, who made a devastating break to allow Lewis Hammond to set up Ben Cheston to score in the corner.
The angle was too much for Duffy's kick, but again he made up for it by slotting home a penalty before it was Townsend's turn to shine again.
Starting the move with a good tackle, Townsend chased a hacked clearance, picked the ball up and outstripped the defence to score the settling try.
Duffy again could not convert, and was unlucky to have a try disallowed from a lone-out at the death.
