Birmingham Solihull Bees look to life in National League 2

PLANS are already underway at Bees for life in National League 2 North.

PLANS are already underway at Bees for life in National League 2 North. Videos of the teams they’ll be facing have been obtained and talks are currently underway with the playing squad to see who is staying and who is going.

In addition director of rugby Russell Earnshaw said they were casting their eye over a crop of local players to see if they could make the grade: “We’re just waiting for the play-offs to get a complete picture of who’ll be in the league next season,” said Earnshaw. In the meantime there’s the small business of Ealing Trailfinders away in London on Saturday,

Casting the memory back to the fixture at Bees at the start of the season there didn’t seem to be a lot between the two sides.

“It’s been the story of our season,” said Earnshaw, “now we’re going to be relegated but both sides will be going out to win.”

In a game ruined by some heavy handed refereeing – which saw five yellow cards being flourished – Bees lost 38-27 against Blackheath on Saturday.

The Bees faithful saw their team being unfairly punished and despite a late rally featuring a brace of tries by man-of-the-match Rob Connolly, they were eventually beaten by the clock.
