Bromsgrove suffered their sixth defeat in a row after Scunthorpe beat them 5 points to 24 at Finstall Park on a wet and windy Saturday.

The match started well for Bromsgrove as they put their opponents under pressure from the very start and after 3 minutes were awarded a penalty. Upton’s kick hit the post and Scunthorpe escaped. Bromsgrove kept up the pressure, but a series of penalties were given away allowing the visitors to get out of trouble.  However, they couldn’t stop the try scoring machine Tom Hunt on 10 minutes.  Bromsgrove took a ball against the head, and the quick ball that ensued saw Hunt beat a couple of defenders for pace, and touch down in the right hand corner.  Upton’s kick went narrowly wide, but the attacking intent was established.

Scunthorpe woke up after that score and worked themselves down the pitch and forced a lineout.  Having secured the ball, they drove the mall to the try line and Guy Mychajluk claimed the score. Scunthorpe’s full back Steve Johnson converted.

Scunthorpe went further ahead when Foster found his centre Dibdin on the inside and his powerful burst split the home defence and he went over without being touched. The missed conversion made the score 5 points to 12, but crucially Scunthorpe had two tries after only 21 minutes. Bromsgrove battled hard to get further points, and were denied a James Shewell try when the ref didn’t see his grounding of the ball.  Sam Bastock’s effort came close only for Scunthorpe to prevent him from crossing.  So, the first half ended at 5-12 to Scunthorpe.

The visitors started the second half well, and earned a penalty for offside.  Millen interfered with the penalty taker before he had travelled the required distance, and was yellow carded for the second time in two weeks. While he was on the bench Scunthorpe set up a good field position and although Bromsgrove managed to stop the driving maul, James Dyson hoovered up the ball and dodged his way to the try line. Johnson missed the conversion.

Bromsgrove found themselves 5-17 down, though they had most of the possession and were actually playing quite well in the wet conditions.  Upton was having a really good game, as he caught everything that was thrown to him, several times right at his feet. He kicked well, and made a telling break only to find himself unable to offload to a team mate.  Bromsgrove battered the visitor’s line and they defended really well. Dibdin was sin-binned when he reached to intercept what would have been a likely scoring pass and knocked it on.  While he was off the pitch more pressure was heaped on but Bromsgrove couldn’t break through. Handling errors were creeping in and several opportunities were lost.  Bromsgrove were guilty of losing possession when they went into tackles with the ball, and instead of going to ground were held up and conceded scrums to Scunthorpe.  As the game was coming to a close and Bromsgrove were searching for their second try, Johnson managed to break out of defence, he moved the ball left and had great support from Dyson, who was the man of the match.  He changed the point of attack and found the speedy Rory Randall-Tyrell who sprinted into the corner.  Johnson added the conversion points which sealed the match. Scunthorpe had their win along with the extra try bonus point.   They host the league leaders, Hinckley next Saturday, which will be a title decider.
