Berkswell & Balsall run off their feet by Northwich

THE Bs are finding that life in the leagues grade is as strewn with hazards as they anticipated on their visit to Cheshire.

Held up by traffic delays and without five of their normal backs, Bs attempted to make the exchanges a mostly pack-based affair, but Northwich would have none of it and launched some impressive attacking rugby. In 20 minutes the score was 12-0 and then bad turned to worse following a yellow card for a high tackle.

A ‘third-time-lucky’ penalty by Chris Dutoy for the upbeat home side followed by a converted try late on, run in from the half-way line, with no tackles from weary opponents to prevent it, completed the scoreline.

Tomorrow, Saturday, they face Old Halesonians at home.
