Saturday 24th October was a wet and cold day in Shropshire, and although Bromsgrove took the lead after only two minutes via the boot of Richard Mahoney, the final result of the match was a miserable defeat for the visitors.  The 0-3 scoreline didn’t last long as Josh Evans intercepted a floated pass and stole 5 points after Bromsgrove had secured the ball at a line out. Holder missed the conversion.
Bromsgrove were taking advantage of the wind in the first half and regularly sought to put the ball deep into Newport territory. The Boars took the lead again when James Shewell crashed over following a catch and drive. Mahoney, sponsored by Kenneth Curtis and Co, added the extra points for Bromsgrove to extend their lead to 5 points to 10.  Newport went back on the attack only for Evans to knock on with the line at his mercy.  A lucky let off for the visitors.  However the next scorer, Ash Paterson decided that passing the ball to colleagues might be inviting further spillages, so he kept the ball, dodging Bromsgrove tacklers in a mazy run that seemed to bypass the whole Bromsgrove team and led to a fine solo try under the posts which Holder converted.  Back came the visitors after some fine forward ball carrying, with Edgar, Meadows and Norris to the fore.  The hosts were caught by the diligent referee, Peter Caunt in an offside position, and Mahoney restored the lead 12-13.  As the first half was coming to a close and Bromsgrove were working really hard to grind out yards and release the backs, Henry Vaka seized upon another floated pass and sprinted 75 metres to the try line to give Holder an easy conversion and send the home side in at half time 19-13 up, a scoreline they barely deserved.
The Bromsgrove travelling fans were buoyed up when their team scored first after the restart, and the revival seemed to be underway.  Vaka had some other ideas and following a good attack by Newport bustled his way over the line near the posts to give Holder another easy conversion.  The usual assured Bromsgrove tackling was missing in this game and there were some abrasive undertones in the match. The referee was forced to call the captains together to give them some advice.  Newport didn’t listen and one of their forwards went to the bin for not heeding the advice. The game was littered with handling errors on both sides, probably due to the wet conditions.  Newport were guilty of pushing the offside line on many occasions, which explains the two interception tries they scored, but they attempted this routine under the nose of the referee and were penalised. Mahoney accepted the 3 points on offer.  The scoreline moved to 26-21.  From somewhere Newport found another gear, and they picked up the pace.  Using the same tactics employed by Bromsgrove in the first half they pinned the visitors in their own 22 and aided by some dropped balls increased their lead with three unanswered tries and registered a 45-21 total before Tom Hunt, sponsored by The Forest Motor Company, finally got a pass and touched down in the corner. Almost as soon as the conversion was missed the referee had seen enough, and sought the comfort of the changing rooms.  Final score 45-26.
