RUGBY - ROSS RFC 1ST XV 7, FRAMPTON COTTERELL 43

After securing their future in the Gloucester Premiership next season, there was an opportunity on Saturday for Ross to relax and enjoy their rugby against a side only one place above them in the league table. Ross however were outplayed by a rampant Frampton side who ran out comfortable 43-7 winners.

It was Ross who started the brightest. With Huw Bellamy and TC Leech running the ball out of defence, it looked early on as if it would be Ross that would enjoy the hard ground and the sunshine, yet once Frampton had opened the scoring after 15 minutes it was one way traffic. Ross worked hard in patches but Frampton were ruthless when they sniffed an opportunity and they ran tries in regularly throughout the encounter. Ross did exert some pressure midway through the second half which saw Chay Brine cross for a try, but it was Frampton who finished the stronger and Ross were glad to hear the final whistle.

The Walford Timber Man of the Match was Captain, Gavin Oates.

The games come thick and fast this week. On Tuesday, 13th Ross 1st XV played at home to Drybrook, (results are not yet in) then on Saturday, Ross entertain Gloucester Old Boys at Ross Sports Centre. Kick off is at 3pm.


FOOTBALL - ROSS UNITED U13s 1, PEGASUS U13s 0

Ross United U13ís played away at Pegasus on Sunday morning in their penultimate league match.

On a wide uneven pitch, Ross were the better team in the opening minutes and almost opened the scoring when a shot from Ralph hit the foot of the post. Ross continued to pile on the pressure with Callum and Ryan leading the line, supported by the hard working midfield of Josh, Harry, Daniel L, Jake and Liam. They remained solid at the back with Jacob and Ralph on the flanks with the solid pair of Joe and Dan in front of Kieran. Ross continued to seek the advantage with shots from Callum, Josh and Jake, all testing the Pegasus keeper; however, it was Kieran who was forced to make an excellent one-handed save low down to keep the deadlock just before half-time.

Ross continued to play the better football in the second half, forcing a number of corners and cutting through the Pegasus defence with some accurate passing moves, but had to wait until the 29th minute before finally scoring when Callum battled through a number of challenges to score. Ross held out to make the final score 1-0 and confirm their position as runners-up in the league.

The Man of The Match was awarded to Joe, with The Hardest working Player being awarded to Jacob.

The Ross United Team were Kieran, Ralph, Dan, Joe, Jacob, Josh, Ryan, Harry, Dan L, Liam, Jake and Callum.


FOOTBALL - ROSS RATTLESNAKES U11s 3, WESTFIELDS U11s 3

Following on with their rich vein of form, Ross Rattlesnakes notched up another superb performance to earn a well deserved draw away at High Flying Westfields of Hereford. This result is another indicator of the massive improvement in team work as the last meeting between the two sides saw Ross comprehensively beaten at home 2 - 8.

In a thrilling match played on a hot spring day, both teams gave everything to the dying minutes in a match where goals were hard to come by. Brandon and Ty playing up front, took their chances and shared in the scoring. Midfielders Bradley, CJ, Troy, Connor and Scott provided a constant flow of possession to keep the strikers busy, with the defence of Ethan, Lizzie and Lewis calmly dealing with everything Westfields could throw at them.

The Carrís Cars man of the match however goes to Rory in goal, who's diving saves and physical presence kept out at least 2 certain goals, allowing Ross to claim a well deserved draw away from home.
