Tamworth Return To Winning Ways

Bonus point win secures fifth

Tamworth came into their final home game of the season against Kidderminster off the back of four hard fought defeats knowing that victory would guarantee them an extremely creditable fifth place in their first season back in Mids 2 and victory for the visitors would keep them right in contention for the same berth.
The game started at a frantic pace and it was end to end stuff and it took just 8 minutes for Tamworth to take the lead after some good work to force their way into the Kidderminster 22 Dan Borthwick eluding the defence to score.
The visitors narrowed the gap on 14 minutes with a penalty 5-3 and fifteen minutes later nudged into the lead with a further 3 points from the tee. 5-6
Their lead would last only 6 minutes when Keiran Jackson burst through the midfield to score under the posts Jon Arnold added the extras and Tamworth led at half time 12-6.
The second half was barely a minute old when Jimmy Carroll beat a couple of defenders to extend the lead Arnold converted 19-6
Rob Gemmell put them further in front on 53 minutes squeezing in at the corner giving Arnold a kick from the tightest of angles which he made look easy and Tamworth looked comfortable at 26-6
Looking comfortable proved completely different from being comfortable as 2 yellow cards for Tamworth and a barnstorming comeback from the visitors who replied with a 3 try’s and 2 conversions had the home side looking decidedly shaky. But a further try from Gemmell created well by a perfectly timed pass from number 8 Jamie Lawrence and a penalty from Arnold meant that Tamworth held on in what had been a match that was a credit to the game of Rugby union.
