RED-HOT kicker Scott Forrester helped Birmingham Exiles blow away Clee Hill in the North Midlands Cup.

The Australian scored 13 of the visitors' 28 points to help Exiles beat a side that they have lost to in their last six visits.

After dominating the opening stages prop Gareth Holloway strode over the line for a try to open the scores. Full-back Forrester added the extras.

Having the lion's share of possession, Es continued to press and good handling by the backs saw right winger Matt Austin cut in to touch down by the posts with Forrester again increasing the score.

Minutes later the influential full back flew straight through the posts to add another try which he converted himself.

The Exiles pack were also doing well in the line-out, Ahmed in particular having an excellent game.

And it was the centre who provided a good ball for the backs to break the home line once again, Austin charging over for a well taken second try which Forrester duly improved to complete a satisfying first half haul for the visitors.

An overwhelming performance from the visitors left the hosts somewhat bemused and despite making three changes at the break they failed to get on the score sheet.
