Bridgnorth slip to loss and down in the table

The Yorkshire town of Doncaster, population 300,000 is a real hotbed of Sport and on a Saturday the influx of supporters of Rugby,football, racing and shoppers put a strain on the traffic and parking.
The splendid Castle Park Stadium home to Doncaster Knights, the Senior Club, with facilities shared with Doncaster Phoenix, Bridgnorth's opponents in the Premier League.
The stadium carpetted wall to wall with 4G artificial grass, lazer sharp white lines and enough high security fencing to solve Mr Trump's border problem. The Club also hosts the England v France Ladies International this Sunday. Fantastic set up!.
When Doncaster visited Bridgnorth in October the All-Blacks with virtually the same team won 43-5 Today with their tail feathers on fire the Phoenix rose from the embers of the league table to gain revenge by 47-15.
Bridgnorth in black and Phoenix in navy, with a white chest stripe, did seem to have a colour clash but the referee didn't intervene and Bridgnorth went ahead with a penalty from Llew Williams,who a few minutes later added the points to a try from Ted Parker.
Doncaster hit back with some energetic bursts from their backline, and two breakaways in quick succession put Phoenix in the lead 14-10.
Another breakaway with a clever chip from the Phoenix scrum half gave the right winger a try in the corner. A wonderful kick from the narrowest of margins made the half time score 21-10
Playing some good rugby against some indifferent defence Phoenix made the length of the field to score under the posts with the simple kick
increasing their lead 26-10 . An injury to Luis Evitts didn't help the Bridgnorth cause, who with three robust props in the front row Bridgnorth gained enough ground for Joe Cave to touch down. The Barnes Wallis type conversion attempt barely left the ground.Once again the home attack covered most of the pitch for another goal
Conor Nicholls made good ground to get to within 5 metres but again the home side broke clear for a long run home to clinch the game 47-15.
Next week Bridgnorth host Lichfield and must hope that they can make a miraculous recovery from recent loss of form. Bridgnorth lost to Lichfield away 34-31
