Midlands West 4 (South)

Alcester 35 - 5 Birmingham Exiles

BIRMINGHAM Exiles began their game against Alcester - who were celebrating the club’s 50th jubilee - the better of the two teams, as winger Andy Vasey scored in the corner.

Despite the E’s dominating possession, they could not add to their early score and with ten minutes before the half time break, Alcester hit back with a breakaway try which was converted.

With Exiles’ depleted squad, Alcester began to control the game in the second half and scored four further converted tries to confirm an emphatic win, keeping their unbeaten home record and place at the top of the table.

Wednesbury 25 - 5 Old Yards RFC

The visitors made a bright start to the game using their heavy pack to good effect. However, goal kicker Jamie Walton left his kicking boots behind as he missed a number of early penalty kicks.

Wednesbury took advantage by scoring two break away tries with one converted to take a half-time lead of 12-0.

Early second half pressure resulted in a close range try for Yards’ skipper Steve Grainger, but that was as good as it got. The host’s superior fitness saw them score two late tries and a penalty to gain a comfortable 25-5 victory.


Camp Hill 49 - 7 Altringham Kersal

Camps were quick to get their first try with Jo Hart crossing the line within the first five minutes. This try was to be her first of four in the game.

Altringham never looked dangerous as they struggled to cope with the strong platforms provided by the rampant Camp Hill forwards. Camps backs took full advantage with scores also coming from fly half Rebecca Morgan as well as high scoring Hart.

The second half was a somewhat less free flowing affair but Camps remained dominant and drew blood through Sheena Larkin and Kath Hamilton.
