Pinley Colts 17 Southam Colts 26
Young 'Simmy' make his presence felt
Southam took on new opposition and came away from a paddy field of a pitch to register a well deserved win, however it didnt start well for Southam who let Pinley in for an easy score after only 3 minutes of play.
On 7 minutes a fairly easy penalty was missed by Southam who then made amends with a try for James Rawbone who powered over from 5 metres to level the scores after 12 minutes.
Southam started to feel their feet a bit now and good passages of play deep in the Pinley 22 created a number of opportunities and it was Will Eadon who seized on a mistake by the Pinley 9 at a scrum to race in for a converted try by Charlie Munro after 20 minutes.
Just before half time Rawbone again showed his presence and power from close range again converted well in the conditions by Munro to take Southam into the break 5 :19.
Southam then came out to a revitalised Pinley side, who for the next 15 minutes chose the pick and drive tactic to good effect gaining 2 tries, one converted to bring themselves within 2 points of Southam.
The game could have swung either way however Southam again upped their game with skipper Bay Toner, hooker Mario Palmer and the ever present Rawbone starting the exert their experience and skill.
In fact a storming run from 25 metres out from Rawbone, who careered his way through 3 tacklers to squirrel over for a converted try was just reward for not only the win, but also man of the match.
