Dudley Kingswinford suffered their third defeat at the hands of Bromsgrove RFC this season, as the Finstall Rd squad scored 5 tries in a scrappy contest of the NMRFU Plate final.  Ollie Bache scored the try that sealed victory in the 76th minute, as Bromsgrove ran out 17 point to 29 winners.  Richard Mahoney had a mixed day with the boot in windy conditions.  He converted Sam Shepherds opening try, after good approach work by the forwards to put Bromsgrove on the scoreboard after DK took an early lead with a penalty for offside.  They extended their lead to 10 – 7 after James Jefferson sprinted clear when Bromsgrove lost their own scrum ball.  Mahoney levelled the scores at 10 all just before half time, but it was scant reward for all the possession that the Boars had.  The windy conditions made it difficult for the long line out throws, but for some reason Bromsgrove persisted with the option, and consequently lost 7 of their own throws to scrums with DK put in, for not straight in the 1st half.
Bromsgrove have probably been at their most impressive this season when coming from behind, and so it proved on Sunday. DK forged into the lead again with a converted try and seemed to be relishing the challenge.  Bromsgrove’s resolute defence, with Tom Hardwick and Matt Edgar having really big games battled hard to prevent further scoring, and the 17 points that DK achieved after 46 minutes would prove to be the last they would score.  Bromsgrove pulled one try back when Kev Salisbury crashed over with Mahoney converting to level the scores again at 17 all.  Although it wasn’t all one way traffic, Millen bashed into the Keiron Pinches the DK flyhalf, and literally ripped the ball out of his grasp, shoved him out of the way and touched down to send Bromsgrove into the lead.  A few nervous minutes passed, where neither side showed great attacking ability.  Dan Protherough used up his bench, and although there was much adventure from Bromsgrove the fourth try wouldn’t come!  Matt Edgar was set on course for a try and might have stretched for the line, he chose to pop up the ball as he was going to ground and the tricky pass was spilled.  So, it fell to Ollie who came through from fullback to show the ball to the defending centres, feign a pass and just kept on running till the try line came into view and he crossed it under the posts without a finger being laid on him. Mahoney couldn’t miss and launched the ball through the posts to notch up a 17 to 29 scoreline.  Not much happened in the last four minutes of the match, and the referee, Ben Ward, who had an excellent game called “no side” to ensure the Boars secured the Plate trophy.  Incidentally the “Plate” is in fact a curved piece of glass, but it now will grace Bromsgrove’s honours board for ever.
This was Duncan Rokes’ last game as the backs coach of the Bromsgrove RFC 1st team, and he deserves the rest to spend time with his family and hopefully enthuse his sons with the love of the game he has showed us on many occasion. Thanks for everything Duncan!
