A draw at Weston's, but what could have been

3 weeks ago By niall crawford

Improved performance saw undefeated Rugby Lions held to a draw.

With Burtons game a fading memory, coach Perks asked his player to focus on this weeks game and turn up, work hard and play how we know we can. The team was able to field different players this week with more availability. This shone through in a much more physical and robust performance. Rugby Lions have had three wins up to now, and the size and skill levels they have you can understand why. It was the Worcester defence that held them at bay, for long periods of time, and the desire to stop them getting over the try line was never more evident than in Man of the Match Dave Serefini, who's two try saving tackles kept the Lions from the try line.
The Lions were strong and direct, sending the big runners round the finger and using them to soften up the Worcester players. To Worcesters credit they repelled them time and time again. The game was by no means one sided, Worcester were able to exert long periods of pressure, but just lacking some composure in the final third. At the end of the first half Worcester were leading, but not long in to the second half, Rugby equalised. Tom Biggs got both Worcesters penalties, but also missed to very long-range attempts to try and secure the match in the second half. The lions pack looked to tier towards the end of the game, and Worcester had good field position to launch another attack. It was not to be, the refs while went for full time, leaving everyone feeling like the lions and AB's when the full time whistle went in the third test. It was a strange end to a very physical and at sometimes hot tempered game, but a game Worcester showed great character, commitment and passion to move on. The 1st team travels to Campbell next Saturday, who they have not played in a while since leagues kept them apart.
