Bromsgrove welcomed Sandbach RUFC to Finstall Park on a windy Saturday afternoon. The home side needed to get back to winning ways and so it proved with Ed Spalding having a fine afternoon, scoring four tries and having a prominent hand in two others.  Harry Anderson-Brown showed what a versatile player he is, with a solid performance at fullback.  He used the following wind very well in the first half pushing the play deep into Sandbach territory.  From a line out Sandbach secured the ball, but a poor kick was charged down and Spalding bagged the first of his four tries after 3 minutes. Try converted by Upton.
Sandbach were stung into action and launched a good attack from deep in their half, as they approached the 22 metre line they met up with Spalding who stripped his man of the ball and took off on a 75 metre sprint to the line. He couldn’t be caught, and although Upton missed the conversion Bromsgrove were looking quite comfortable with their 12-0 lead. The visitors woke up from a good midfield break and taking a great attacking line Bird cut through the home defence to touch down under the post giving Bordhill and easy conversion to cut the deficit to 5 points.  This position wouldn’t last long as after 13 minutes an excellent clearance kick from Anderson-Brown produced a line out lose to the Sandbach line.  Bromsgrove got their hands on the ball and moved it well to the left.  Spalding saw his chance for his hatrick and muscled his way past the defence to score, again Upton obliged with the extras for a 19-7 scoreline. 
Both teams were playing an exciting style of rugby, and looking to run the ball when the opportunity came.  The visitors started an attack from the half way and combined a series of forward drives resulting in their scrumhalf Bird bursting through near the posts to give Bordhill his second shot which he made, and he was on target again 5 minutes later with a penalty to increase his teams points total to 17.  It was a good comeback from the visitors, but Bromsgrove were not through scoring in the first half when Anderson-Brown finished off a great move as he was handed the ball by Spalding having beaten his man convincingly once again.  The first half ended 24-17 in favour of Bromsgrove.
Anderson-Brown started the second half as he finished the first by scoring a great team try, with first Horton carrying well, and passing to Spalding who met his opponent on the gain line and bustled passed him and invited his full back through the open door to the try line. Upton kicked the extra 2 points to stretch the lead to 31-17.  Bromsgrove kept up the pressure knowing the wind would be a factor late in the game, and Upton increased the home teams lead with a penalty kick when a Sandbach player refused to roll away in time. 
Bromsgrove were forced to bring on Woodward when Matt Edgar suffered an ankle injury after 8 minutes of the second half.  It didn’t seem to dent the forward drive and with Jamie Atkins accurate throwing in the windy conditions Bromsgrove drove powerfully towards the visitors line and from the excellent drive captain Horton crashed over for a well deserved try. Into the stiff breeze Upton squeezed his conversion over.  Three minutes later it was the turn of the Sandbach hooker to make a good throw and from the good catch their second row forward scored and Bordhill converted.  41-24.
Upton was on target again and kicked a penalty to keep the scoreboard ticking over.  44-24.  Back came Sandbach with a super strike by their right winger on 71 minutes again converted by Bordhill to reduce their arrears, 44-31.  Sandbach were in all out attack, but let the ball slip and Bache took the stolen ball deep inti the Sandbach half.  He was caught as he tried to cut inside, but the ball once again found its way into the hands of Ed Spalding, whose opposite number must have been thoroughly sick of seeing him heading towards him.  With men outside Spalding decided to take him on and the result was the same as last time.  The scoreboard moved onto 51 -31 when Upton converted.  That was not the end of the scoring as on the stroke of 80 minutes Sandbach scored the final try and Bordhill converted to give their score more respectability.  The ref blew and both teams had server up a flood of tries and exciting play in difficult and cold conditions, The final score being 51-38.
