Birmingham Exiles 46 Hanford 10

TWO tries apiece for Elliott Johnstone and Toby Taylor helped the Exiles see off a spirited Hanford in the EDF Energy Junior Vase second round.

TWO tries apiece for Elliott Johnstone and Toby Taylor helped the Exiles see off a spirited Hanford in the EDF Energy Junior Vase second round.

The win maintained their 100 per cent start to the season and leaves the Bickenhill side full of confidence ahead of tomorrow's trip to Chaddesley Corbett.

Johnstone put the hosts ahead with two quick fire tries and the inside centre eased them out to a three-score lead with a penalty goal.

Es then had to soak up some early Hanford pressure and Matt Austin stole the ball and broke away to increase the scores.

Returning to the attack once more, they rounded off the scoring for the half as the ball went out to the left wing again and full back Tom Patrick touched down.

After the break Hanford replied with a try from Phil Tremble but hooker Kieron Walter sprinted through an inviting gap to touch down for the Es.

Austin then added another pushover with Johnstone converting before two tries in as many minutes from No.8 Taylor effectively wrapped up the game.

Hanford had the last say though as left winger Chris Buckley claimed a try in the corner.
