Dings Crusaders 59 - Bournville 10

Bournville kicked off with the wind in their favour and Dings had a penalty laden start, and 8 minutes in the visitors take their first pop at the posts, Jacob Fewtrell unsuccessful.

Immediately on the return, gathering themselves, Dings hands link up with Tom Hargan running in for 7 (con Sam Worsley).
Minutes later, Dings attack again, with feisty scrum half, Oscar Lennon selling an outrageous dummy, flat footing the defence and clearing the path to score.
The flood gates are open now as Dings forwards join the game, Jake Holcombe walking over.

Bournville on the reprise now, with some slick hands. James Weaver out to Alex Evans who seemed in for certain, but for Worsley’s covering tackle forcing the knock on into touch.
The subsequent line out putting the inimitable Joe Hawkesby over.
Moments later, playmaker Harry Tarling scores from a loose ball, and capitalised on his outstanding match performance, with Bournville losing James Burgoyne to the bin.

5 minutes into the second half, it seemed that there would be a copy of the first as Solomon Taufa ran in, Jacob Perry using the grubber to good effect, but Bournville were resurgent.
Despite having issues with the line out, they were aided by a Tom Hargan yellow, resulting in Owen Williams scoring the visitors solitary try.
However, against this passage of play, Sam Worsley, then Matt Smith run in to close the game 59-10 in Dings favour.
