Bromsgrove RFC suffered their second defeat in a row after coming off a clear second best to Peterborough Lions at the Den.  On a miserable wet and windy day it was the visitors who started the more adventurous side with Meadows taking the ball deep into enemy territory.  How ever both sides were tackling really well, and attacks from both sides were being stopped.  The front rows were sizing each other up and a series of front row penalties eventually produced some good field position for the home side.  No advantage was taken from this and it gave the Boars an opportunity to get back into the Peterborough half prompting Chris Danks to demonstrate his guile with a dummy and a snaking run.  Peterborough held firm and at the next scrum John Malins, who had just come onto the field from the bench was yellow carded and he returned to his seat, which was still warm. Four minutes later Matt Dunn went over for a try converted by Will Carrington. This try combined with a missed penalty by Upton seemed to have an adverse effect on the Bromsgrove team, and their tackling prowess, normally a strong part of their game deserted them for a while and Horne made 50 yards leaving defenders in his wake. The Peterborough forwards sensed the weakness and piled on the pressure in the scrums and close to the line the Boars conceded a penalty try, which in a rare occurrence Carrington failed to convert when just as he was about to strike the ball a gust of wind tipped it over, and he grubbered it feebly over the line and  all along the ground!
During the lead up to the try Dave Lewis was injured and was taken to hospital.  The match was briefly transferred to the second team pitch by the referee as delay meant losing the daylight.
The first half ended with the home side 12-nil up.
It was important for morale that Bromsgrove started the second half well, and indeed they scored next with a penalty stroked over by Upton, who then proceeded to upset the referee, when he was adjudged to have deliberately knocked on and left the field for the Boars second yellow card of the match. Bromsgrove held out during his absence, but the home side eventually crossed the line again when Lithuanian international Arturas Balciunas barrelled over the line following a catch and drive. Carrington added the extras for a 19-3 lead. Normally Bromsgrove rally and finish off games strongly and are capable of beating most sides when the mood takes them, but this Saturday was not going to be one of those days!  It was down to poor handling by both sides that no more points were added and Danks added to the frustration felt by all the visiting support when he earned himself a yellow card right at the death to give Peterborough a man advantage.  Fortunately Bromsgrove held out to deny the home side a bonus point try, but not the victory they deserved.
Epilogue
Bromsgrove will be showing some greater resolve as they carry on the campaign against Sandbach on the 5th December.  It’s the Chairman’s lunch, and we look forward to a stirring game to bring the faithful some cheer as we lead up to the Christmas break.  Come along and give the team your vocal support!
