A TURBULENT week for Birmingham Solihull Rugby Club has ended with the departure of director of rugby Russell Earnshaw, the expected end of their groundshare with Solihull Moors and their relegation to the fourth tier of English rugby, National League 2 North, writes Ross Crawford.
BEES’ director of rugby Russell Earnshaw believes the combination of a nucleus of retained players, bolstered by some new additions, will give his side every chance of being competitive in National League One.
BEES fell through the trapdoor of the Championship relegation play offs to National League 1 this afternoon (Sunday) when they were simply not good enough against a Moseley side brimming with confidence after back to back wins over Esher.
“IT’S going to be a massive dogfight” reckons Bees director of rugby Russell Earnshaw - and the people of Solihull are invited to watch as Birmingham and Solihull take on Moseley at Damson Park this Sunday in a game they simply have to win.
