What a difference a week makes!

Whether it was strong words or video analysis by the Smallman Coaching team revealing the flaws in last weeks heavy defeat but virtually the same Bridgnorth team attacked from the start,tackled their hearts out, reduced the penalty count and with Llew Williams on form, kicked efficiently, particularly off the ground.
The All Black pack, with Calum Madden and Tim Breakwell adding their power and energy,held the upper hand in the set pieces, and with clean possession gave young Richard Addison time and space to dictate play. Gaining possession almost from the kick off, a long diving pass and some deft handling gave Jack Pons the chance to dive over in the extreme left corner. Llew Williams converted with a great kick. 0-7
Further extreme scrum pressure in front of goal caused Bournville to collapse the drive and the penalty try doubled the Bridgnorth score. Dodging runs from Addison and as the pack overwhelmed the opposition, he ran through scattered home defence to give Elliot Brooks the gift try. The conversion attempt by Williams just slid across the face of the goal. Another slick move by the backs brought another try for Jack Pons for Williams to convert. Not giving up, Bournville fought back for a goal bringing half time score 7-26 .
Bournville really hammered the Bridgnorth line but stout defence from Griffiths,Smeilus and Gore
kept them out.
Richard Addison fooled everybody with a lightning, swerving solo run to touch down under the posts and a few minutes later following good runs by James Hill and Will Biddell repeated the move. Two conversions from Williams and Bridgnorth looked home and dry 7-40. Bridgnorth policy of giving everyone a game did disrupt the set piece superiority and getting more possession Bournville scored a goal and a last ditch tackle by Will Biddell saved another score, before the home team managed an untidy try, with the attempted drop kick well wide. With the score 19-40 one last Bridgnorth drive
saw Ed John crash over and with another great kick from Llew Williams gave Bridgnorth a well earned victory 19-47
In a much improved Bridgnorth display Richard Addison was The Black Horse Man of The Match with Llew Williams close behind for immaculate place kicking. Really the plaudits should go to the coaches who transformed the team in a week ironing out last weeks fatal errors.
Next week Bridgnorth face Scunthorpe on the EDG. Bournville beat them convincingly 36-12 in their last weeks encounter. With another performance like this Bridgnorth, with home advantage, should move another few notches up the League.
