Bromsgrove RFC travelled to Peterborough Lions to play a match that was crucial for both sides in determining the play off spot in a league that is congested with clubs on a similar points total queuing up behind runaway league leaders South Leicester.  The match was to prove that Bromsgrove have some more work to do to secure victories away from home.  Defensively Bromsgrove were too easily split open and crucially did not use the wind in the second half to their advantage.
Peterborough started really well collecting the ball from their kick off and making some good yards.  They had a stiff breeze at their backs and used it well to obtain good field position.  Carrington their outside half missed an easy shot at goal after 10 minutes after Bromsgrove infringed following great pressure from the home side. The game was punctuated by some handling errors on both sides and the concession of penalties in the windy conditions.  Carrington failed with his second penalty shot as well, and left the home supporters wondering if that was to cost them dear in the last throes of the match. They need not have feared as their side started to camp in the Bromsgrove half.  For the first 30 minutes Bromsgrove hardly ventured out of their half even though they tried manfully to run out of defence.  They were guilty of giving up possession in crucial attacks and from one such event Peterborough stripped the ball and worked the ball along their back line to their speedy winger Vernon Horne, who ran in his first try.  Carrington converted. Ed Spalding playing at 10 tried his best to put Bromsgrove on the front foot, but his feet gave up on him and he was replaced by James Upton.  Try as they might Bromsgrove couldn’t breach the Peterborough defence, and the home side scored another try finished off by Horne, but constructed from deep in their own half after Bromsgrove managed to get some decent field position. Carrington had found his kicking boots and stretched the lead to 14 points to nil. If Bromsgrove thought they would get to half time without conceding again, they were wrong as their captain Humphrey picked the ball up from a ruck and charged forward, he was well tackled, but managed to get the ball away to Carrington, who scrambled to the line near the posts which made his conversion simple and the ref brought the half to a close with Bromsgrove trailing 21 nil.  This is a place where Bromsgrove have been many times this season and although Peterborough were three scores in the lead, Bromsgrove didn’t panic as they knew they would have the advantage of the wind in the second half, and so the come back started with a penetrating run by Oli Bache  which resulted in a penalty which Critchlow converted. Bromsgrove were battling away to get some points, but lacked the ability to hold onto the ball and handling errors were costing them dearly.  Nevertheless the visitors managed to score a try with Millen crossing the line, and Critchlow converting for a 21 to 10 scoreline.
It seemed that the comeback was established, but Bromsgrove were found guilty of holding on too many times, and Peterborough were able to escape from the pressure.  Meanwhile as the clocked ticked away Peterborough were holding firm and were always dangerous in attack.  From a Bromsgrove attack they managed to steal the ball and charged up field, the ball found its way to Vernon Horne on the left wing, and they was nobody on the Bromsgrove team to match him, and he sprinted in for his hatrick, and the bonus point try. Once again Carrington found the target to improve the score to 28 points to 10.  The referee had seen enough, and appeared to save Bromsgrove from further punishment by blowing up for full time some minutes early.  A disappointing outcome for the visitors, but Peterborough deserved their win.  Bromsgrove must regroup, rediscover the form that brought them victory over Old Halesonians and find a way to win their next match.
