RUGBY: DRYBROOK 3RDS 8 - ROSS 2ND XV 0

Ross 2nd XV entertained Drybrook 3rds in a dour exchange at the sports centre on Saturday. With Drybrook unable to provide a full front row the game had to be played with uncontested scrums.

Ross started the match the quicker with some good snappy passing allowing the backs to take the game to the opposition. Only good defence by Drybrook kept Ross from scoring early on. Ross then lost fullback Chris Gage with a severe head injury after a clash with the Drybrook Second row. At the restart Drybrook moved the ball upfield and were awarded a penalty which was converted for a 3 nil lead.

Drybrook started to control the match and a fine drive and maul resulted in a well deserved try by Drybrook Captain, Shaun Borne. This was to be the last points of the day for either side and the second half petered out as a contest in a very poor game, with the final score of 8 nil to Drybrook.

Congratulations go to Troy Mccauley on his Ross debut and also thanks to Ross sponsor Walford Timber.

On Saturday, 26th September, Ross 1st XV will play at home against Hucclecote. Kick off is at 3pm. Ross 2nd XV are playing away against Berry Hill 3rd XV.
