BEES showed they were capable of performing against the best last weekend – despite losing to Bedford.
It was always going to be a tricky fixture against the Blues, who climbed to second with their win.
However, with the last weekend’s win against Bristol fresh in their minds, the home side began well, building up an 18-8 lead.
Once again though the Bees were unable to hold onto their hard-fought advantage as they tired in the second half.
Blues winger Duncan Taylor was in good form, scoring three of Bedford’s four tries, while John Brake and Mike Denbee scored for the Bees. Mark Woodrow helped rack up the points with two penalties and a conversion.
Some questionable decisions did not go the Bees way, with soft penalties given Bedford’s way and a debatable try, but the Bees will know they showed enough quality to be able to beat the teams around them and lift themselves off bottom in the Championship table.
Next game for the Solihull side is an away trip to Nottingham this evening (November 12).
