Bromsgrove RFC arrived at the Leicester Rd home of Hinckley RFC on a very sunny afternoon. The game could not be played on the first team pitch due to its waterlogged state and the match was moved to the third team pitch, a very narrow sloping pitch with short posts listing heavily to one side.
The Bromsgrove team were soon in trouble as they entered into a kicking game with the home side which didn’t have the follow up edge needed to put the catchers under any pressure.  Consequently the big and skilful Hinckley backs started to pound the visitors defence from the off and after only 5 minutes Lamb opened the scoring with a try.  Hinckley had won the ball from a scrum against the head, and this did not bode well for the remaining period of the match. Mark Lord was narrowly wide with the conversion.
The visitors did try to make inroads, and the tactic of Mortlemans crashing into the Hinckley midfield did yield an attacking platform, but Bromsgrove were too far out and rarely entered the Hinckley half, even though they were playing down the hill.  The Hinckley backrow were also very quick to smother attacks, and deprive Bromsgrove of the ball. 
The inaccurate kicking was providing Hinckley with ball, and from one such attack Huw Marsden found his way to the try line and with Lord converting this try extended the lead to 12-0.
On 17 minutes into the game and after a series of scrums that eventually wore down the patience of the referee, Hinckley were awarded a penalty try which Lord converted to take Hinckley 19 -0 into the lead.  The poor kicking game continued and failure to make touch gave the ball to the home side in good field position and Tom Morris duly added the fourth Hinckley and the bonus point gaining try from a dynamic rolling maul again converted by Lord. At the end of the first half the home side had a 26-0 advantage.
There is not much to report from the second half as neither side could manage a score of any kind!  Having come on after 33 minutes Greg Campion was sin binned at 41 minutes.  Hinckley spurned the chance for a goal kick. Even though Bromsgrove were playing with 14 men they seemed to lift their game and managed to prevent Hinckley from scoring, and actually played their best rugby of the match.  There was a decision made by the referee that was not consistent with his earlier penalty try award, when Marshall pulled down a driving maul near the home try line, instead of awarding the penalty try as he had to Hinckley, he chose to sin bin the offender and Ben Marshall sat out 10 minutes for his offence.  Bromsgrove couldn’t make their numerical advantage tell, and the second half petered out to a 0-0 draw.  Hinckley took the five points by virtue of their dynamic first half performance and continued their unbeaten home run which started after they lost at home to Bromsgrove in October 2014.
Bromsgrove slip one place to fifth in the league.  The next match is at Finstall Park on the 23rd January, when Lichfield RFC will be the visitors.
