This match didn’t quite go according to the script. Bromsgrove had a record of seven wins and two defeats and the visitors was the opposite, two wins and seven defeats, you could be forgiven that town would be favorites and expected to win. However what the statistics don’t show is that three of Towns wins were by one point and three of O.N.’s defeats were also by one point. Which meant it was always going to be a tight affair.
The visitors started the stronger and had an opportunity to take an early lead on 2 minutes but fly half Alex Rose missed the penalty. It was a fairly evenly fought contest once the game settled but it was O.N’s who drew first blood when scrum half Lewis Barker scored near to the posts. Rose converted. Grove’s response was immediate when from the kick off Tom Hardwick drove the ball forward forcing the visitors to concede a penalty which Richard Mahoney converted. It appeared that the home pack were starting to assert some authority on the game and it was from a huge 40 metre driving maul that they scored their first try with Greg Campion scoring. Mahoney missed an easy conversion. It was the O’N’s turn for a quick response, they gained a good field position and after several phases a beautifully weighted chip from Rose was gathered by winger Mike Bellamy to score near the corner. During the half Town were gaining good positions but let themselves down by conceding penalties or failing to win their own lineouts. There was an exchange of penalties on the half hour, one of these involving a yellow card for the visitors flanker. Regrettably Town failed to take any advantage of the extra man They did however take the lead just before half time, when against the run of play, a powerful surge from skipper Phil Horton from well inside his own half saw Ed Spalding in support to take the pass and score by the posts. Mahoney converted. Half time 18-15 to Bromsgrove.
A tight second half was expected and in terms of points that’s what we got with only ten being scored. Unfortunately, from the home point of view, these were all scored by the visitors who spent most of the half battering the Town line. Well as Grove defended and hard as they tried to counter the spark was not there, partially distinguished by the stream of penalties against them. It did take O,N’s 20 minutes of the half before they broke the deadlock with a try by captain Alex Crofts, converted by Rose. Another Rose penalty followed shortly. Town did manage to break out of their own half a couple of times late on but poor decision making saw the opportunities go begging. In truth it would have been tough on the visitors to have had a deserved win stolen from them.
Final score 18-25.
