Out in the sticks

Bournville 3rds had to start the day battling disgusting Weather and a tedious journey to face Ludlow.

Bournville started the game with intent and zeal with many of the colts starting another game against quality opposition and another chance for them to prove their worth.

For most of the 1st half Bournville defended galantly, with Bournville holding tight around the fringes and jockeying the opposition into touch, however the Ludlow Number 8 linked up with the Flyhalf and the 15 to create some excellent running Rugby which very few teams could handle, but having said this Ludlow did have to dig deep. Bournville did their best to give back as good as they got with the Forwards sticking to their calls and being more than up for he grunt in all aspects of play, and the Backs marshalled by Alex Iles ran some excellent lines and tackled well; Scott Hardman and Joni Sands defendig well. Scott didnt let muh get past and Joni taking excellent catches.

the 2nd half saw Bournville coming out like a pack of wounded Hell hounds and saw much more aggression particularly from the front row of Mason and the twins, amd also Mike Hignell making some excellent tackles. Mason had shown some back like moving by grooving his way through some meaty opposition.

The fighting spirit was demonstrated after Scumhalf Lee Crutchely carried on playing despite players having the beleief has was knocked out cold. The scrum had also decided to up the ante by playing with more zeal and holding the Ludlow scrum stationary. This extra spirit started to cause the Ludlow supporters to commend Bournville.

Then he pay day came when Phil Swinburn danced his way through to Crash over the line to score, which caused the Ludlow supporter's to errupt in cheers for the Bournville cause.

No special mentions can be made as all the boys played exceptionally well, and this is evidet with Hese Fakatou saying that this game was the most enjoyable he has ever played in a sincere and emotional speech.
