Bromsgrove 32
Sutton Coldfield 31


Bromsgrove RFC almost paid a heavy price for playing their match v Sutton with 14 men for 30 minutes at Finstall Park on Saturday 5th September.  In bright sunshine BRFC started well with a brisk attack taking the ball deep into Sutton territory.  Sutton held on to the ball carrier fro too long and Jon Critchlow had a shot at goal which drifted wide. Bromsgrove missed a try scoring opportunity when Upton started a great move only to see the possession lost to Sutton. Nine minutes after the start Critchlow was successful with a penalty only to see it equalised when Millen was guilty of holding on too long and saw a yellow card. Morgan converting the penalty award.  This score energised Sutton and whilst Millen was warming the bench Nathan Burchell, a fleet footed winger from Sutton, sprinted into the corner for a try after good work from their centre pairing. Morgan hit the post with his conversion attempt.
The Bromsgrove pack were making life very difficult for the Sutton forwards, but they still managed to keep possession.  Though poor scrummaging would come back to haunt them later in the match. Morgan increased the lead with another penalty, and in this period the ref seemed to only have eyes for Bromsgrove infringements. Though Bromsgrove were back to full strength, Dickerson scored great try made by a fine midfield break.  Morgan’s boots were working and so the scored was improved to 3-15.  
Back came the hosts through Tom Hardwick who went over in the 35th minute, his converted try making the score 10-15.  Would have been a reasonable halftime score, but Belmonte found himself in an offside position and fiddled with the ball earning himself a yellow card and gifting Sutton 3 points they didn’t really deserve. Critchlow pegged them back with another penalty shot to record a 13-18 halftime scoreline.
Bromsgrove again down to 14 men and Sutton back from their halftime talk early and eager to get on with the game put the hosts under great pressure. However it was Bromsgrove who scored first in the second half, some intelligent passing by Critchlow found players in space and good handling saw the ball end up with Phil Horton who rampaged over the defenders to crash over near the posts and level the scores.  The conversion was missed. The next player to sit out for ten minutes was Dave Lewis, who was guilty on a cynical offence and rightly was sin binned. Morgan took a shot at goal and converted it to take Sutton back into the lead.
In this pulsating game with both sides working really hard and the lead changing hands all the time, it was Sam Bastock’s try on 68 minutes after a flowing move, good pressure and great handling that edged Bromsgrove back into the lead at 23-21.  Critchlow improved the try with the extra two conversion points.
They say that forward power helps to win matches, and so it proved as Sutton brought down their scrum near to their line under the power of the Boars and incurred the wrath of the referee, who went under the posts and awarded the Bromsgrove eight a penalty try.  The score sat at 32 -21 with a couple of minutes on the clock.  Sutton scored 10 unanswered points thanks to a penalty by Morgan, and then Burchell showed blistering pace to set up a try for Stoddard converted by the reliable Morgan.  Sadly for Sutton time was called after the kick sailed over and the relieved home team had won the match, obtained a try bonus point and survived a torrid opening game.
