Tenbury 38 Birmingham Exiles 0

A FINE start to the season for Birmingham Exiles has come crashing down in recent weeks after failing to win any of their last three games.

A FINE start to the season for Birmingham Exiles has come crashing down in recent weeks after failing to win any of their last three games.

However, the Bickenhill side will be hoping for a change in fortune tomorrow when they entertain Midlands Six (SW) basement boys Himley tomorrow.

Last week they were hammered by Tenbury who celebrated their 50th anniversary in style.

No.8 Will Morgan crashed over the libe to open the scores for the home side and left wing Dave Edwards converted.

Blind side flanker Andy Black went over and outside centre Alex Patten darted through the posts to give Edwards a simple goal kick and the hosts a comfortable half time lead.

There was no let up after the break as Morgan picked up the ball from the base of a scrum and went over for his second try.

E's were dong their best to compete, but the last fifteen minutes were tough after losing Mark Austin to a recurrent neck injury.

Tenbury exploited the gaps and two converted tries from Mark Birks and Dean Gervais sealed the game.
