Bonus Point Win at Bedworth

The Wanderers travelled to Bedworth on Saturday and recorded a fine bonus point win by 33 points to 24.


Tries from Tom Ward, Chris Jenkinson, Tom Mitchell and Simon James all converted by Ross Coombes returning to first team action after a long absence, secured a half time lead of 28 points to 12.

Bedworth however, were determined and physical throughout and continued to pressurise the Wanderers defensive line.

A third Bedworth converted try brought the home team to within 9 points and with the home supporters, basking in the Spring sunshine, urging them forward the Bedworth forwards and strong running backs threatened the Wanderers try line, only to be met with stoic defence.

The Wanderers finally got some good possession and applied their own sustained pressure in the Bedworth red zone. Finally, the Bedworth defence cracked when Lee Watson found Ollie Horton, who had just come on the field for John Mawhinney, lurking on the right wing and he crashed over for what proved to be the decisive score.

Bedworth were not done and a Wanderers error from the kick off presented them with an opportunity which they duly dispatched to gain a fourth and deserved bonus point try!
