Hoping for a fifth to add to four-match victory run

BIRMINGHAM Exiles travel to Highly this weekend on the back on a four-match winning streak.

BIRMINGHAM Exiles travel to Highly this weekend on the back on a four-match winning streak.

Last weekend they defeated leaders Bromyard to knock the Herefordshire side off the top of the table.

Jay Drinkwater and Paul Forester scored first-half tries, with Scott Forester adding the extras.

Forester then kicked a penalty before Ainsley Ralph improved full back Roger Dixon’s touchdown for the visitors.

After the break, Forester continued to keep the scores ticking over with a penalty and the fly half then improved Andy Root’s pushover.

The leaders were struggling and had only a Ralph penalty to show for their efforts before Matt Austin scored two quick-fire tries to effectively wrap up the win.

Forester’s only blemish with the boot came after he missed the conversion for Austin’s first try but an excellent touchline kick for his second made up for the error.
