1/11/15 - Bromsgrove v Bridgnorth

On a glorious November day we hosted Bridgnorth who we had played earlier in the season at the Luctonians festival. We fully expected a tough game and were not disappointed. With six players missing we had to make a number of changes including playing George Wiggins at flanker where  he showed great versatility.
Bridgnorth were very quick off the mark and scored an early individual try from a very talented centre and the boys knew they were in for a hard day. As ever, our forwards were competitive in all areas and won sufficient ball to give the backs plenty of possession.The line out in particular was strong, with Freddie and Tom in harmony.   New backs moves were tried but the  Bridgnorth midfield held firm but eventually three power tries before half time gave us the edge with one reply from our visitors. The try of the day ,scored just before half time, was a lovely backs move with Finley Lewis crossing over in the corner.
Half time was welcomed by all,particularly the front rows who contested a huge number of scrums due to a wet ball going to ground regularly.
As ever,the second half is where we flourish and our forward power began to tell against an equally talented Bridgnorth pack. Wave after wave of forward carries created three more tries but all credit to Bridgnorth whose counter rucking was exceptional. Our visitors never capitulated and late scores gave the score line a respectable and deserved close look at 36-24.But for a couple of last line of defence tackles by Macca and the result could have been different. Most importantly, this was a cracking game, hugely physical and played in the true spirit of rugby. 
This was our toughest game of the season so far and the return will be another seismic affair I'm sure.

MALVERN V BRFC

We were hosted by our good friends at Malvern. We have had several fixtures against them and always have found them to to be hard,fair and worthy opponents. They are exactly what we want for our boys to come up against.

Again the traditional slow start but perhaps understandable as we had so many of our key players missing and many playing out of position.

Again a solid pack and scrum in particular to overcome and credit to our boys as we played much of the game with two backs in the pack but James and Jude are quality players and adjusted.

After taking the lead we suffered a relative shock of conceding a try which was no more than the hosts deserved.

Second half saw our fitness and desire take a stranglehold on the game and a beautifully worked final try between James Topping and Alistair Cook sealed a 19-5 victory. Harrison Moor again led the team in Lewis's absence and he looks very comfortable in the role.

Season to date.

BRFC V BERKSWELL

We were superbly hosted by Berkswell who have undergone some personnel changes since we last played them and have joined with Old Coventrians to maintain sufficient squad size. What hasn't changed is they still have a formidable scrum.

We started slowly and were quite lucky to be ahead at half time. A talking to from the coaches seemed to have the desired result as we ran out 51-0 winners which is a credit to the boys for responding so positively.Alex Hall continues to show great improvement and scored five tries which is exceptional for a No 8 in any level of rugby.

4.10.15 Sutton @ Home
 
After playing six games so far this season and being undefeated, we hosted old rivals Sutton. They were down on numbers but never the less made the journey for which we are grateful. In the first half despite scoring three tries the teams were more evenly matched than the score suggests and our pack was given a real test by a strong Sutton eight. The step up to 25 minute halves did eventually tell on them however and with a couple of injuries and no respite  tiredness told. In the second half and playing up hill we camped in the Sutton half but again they were competitive up front. The fourth try came at about the time Suttons injury list had hit epidemic proportions and we called time a little early. 28-0.
Really brave opponents with an impressive scrum, we will look forward to the return.
