Harborough Colts lost their unbeaten league record at home to Market Bosworth on Saturday.


Harborough Colts lost their unbeaten league record at home to Market Bosworth on Saturday. Harborough went into the game confident of success but soon knew that this was going to be difficult as Bosworth took total control of the line out and with so much possession were able to stretch the ball wide at will. The Harborough defence was however strong and the visitors could only score 2 penalties to lead 6-0 at half time. In fact it was Harborough who could have scored the first try when they broke free on 2 occasions but the final pass did not go to hand. Bosworth upped their game further in the second half and eventually created the overlap to touch down wide out. At this stage the self-belief of some Harborough players deserted them allowing Bosworth to add a second converted try to lead 18-0. Not to be outdone Harborough piled on the pressure and started to retain the ball rather than kick it away. Finding themselves on top the score came when Alex Tilley showed his driving power and forced himself over the line to touch down. The conversion was missed and although Harborough finished strong they were unable to add to their points tally and victory for Bosworth by 18-5 was well deserved.
