The game kicked off in bright sunshine on a wonderful playing surface. BB failed to take the kick off and were under immediate pressure, from a lineout Kens drove on to score a converted try 0-7. BB could not breakout with Kens aggressive running right winger a constant danger, Kens missing a pen. Slowly BB got into the game, but Kens were next to score, when their driving maul was again successful and con 3-14. HT.
BB needed to score next, but Bens scored the try of the game, moving the ball sweetly between forwards and backs 3-19. BB were suffering from poor game management, not helped by neither side secure on their scrummage ball. BB suffered a further blow when lock Sam Miller was binned. Kens stretched their lead with another converted try 3-26, and it was looking ominous for BB. Kens were looking to run everything but came unstuck when a pass was intercepted resulting in a try for David Abraham, James con 10-26. BB were now having a good spell, but a kick ahead was taken by the aggresive Kens winger who made huge inroads before offloading for a second row to score and con 10-33. Still not to be outdone BB came back and after several forward drives, scrum half Tom Shaul scored, James con 17-33. BB attacked again forcing a 5m lineout but the ball was not straight, kens tried to run out from the scrum, dropping the ball for Dan George to kick on and win the race for a try, James con 24-33. It was now all BB as George made a lovely break, this time kens winger showed his pace to haul him down just short. BB had given themselves too much to do and the game finished.
It is always disappointing to lose but BB will not be heartbroken to go out of the cup, focusing on next weeks home league game against Oadby Wyggs.
