Bromsgrove went into this huge derby match on the back of a heavy defeat to Nuneaton, and with a number of regular 1st team players absent through injury and illness.

Nonetheless it was Bromsgrove RFC who started the best with Liam Marshall rolling well in the tackle and evading his man to score after a series of pulsating attacks.  Upton slotted the conversion to put the home side into the lead after 4 minutes. Bromsgrove went further ahead when the Boars stretched Old Hales defence and Mortelmans sprinted into the corner for a try to improve the score to 12-0.  The difficult conversion went wide.

Old Hales were stung into action and worked their way up the field.  The Bromsgrove forwards were matching their opponents well in the line out, and managed a few turnovers, but when it came to scrum time Old Hales had the edge and started to use their forward power.  Fifteen metres from the Bromsgrove try line they won a scrum against the head, and Leach controlled the ball well, picked up and crashed over,  Raynor added the conversion points to reduce the deficit to 5 points.

Bromsgrove still battled away, against a bigger pack, but Old Hales had found their stride and defended their line very well.  Bromsgrove had a few chances as half time approached, but couldn’t get over the line.

As the pressure came on Bromsgrove took to a kicking game, and gifted Old Hales full back Hooper the ball, he punted it forward and Oxford put Bastock under some pressure, and a penalty ensued.  Old Hales decided to take the scrum, which immediately brought about the introduction of Malings by Dan Protherough into the front row.  Try as they might in the last few minutes of the half Old Hales could not add to their points total, as the Bromsgrove team put up a wall of defence to keep the score at 12 point to 7 at the break.

From the restart an intelligent kick from Upton put the visitors under immediate pressure and Bromsgrove pounded the opposition try line, but stout defending prevented a try.  Old Hales did concede a penalty for holding on, and Upton kicked it over to stretch the lead to 15-7.

At this point in the match it was almost as if someone had flicked a switch and ignited the Old Hales team as they woke up and proceeded to score three more unanswered tries and won a penalty try!  Luke Smith helped himself to two tries.  Hadkiss dodged and weaved over for another and when the Bromsgrove forwards upset the referee, he went under the posts having awarded Old Hales the penalty try. Raynor kicked the conversion to end the game and Old Hales ran out worthy winners 15 points to 35.

So it was that a game that started so well, and with so many young players in the side, finally ran out of steam, and from which Bromsgrove came away without any points.  Nonetheless the first half performance showed a great deal of determination, effort and purpose.  It was good experience for the players who stepped up and they showed they can perform on the bigger stage.  With performances like that, there will be more wins to be had before the end of this season.
