RUGBY UNION - Bromsgrove romp to seven-try win against Kenilworth

Bromsgrove Editorial 17th Jan, 2024 Updated: 17th Jan, 2024   0

BROMSGROVE RFC put Kenilworth to the sword in a ruthless seven-try 49-7 victory as Ed Spalding crossed twice.

Spalding touched down twice in the first half while Tom Hardwick, Oliver Ingram, Jordan Maddocks, Thomas Cubitt and Rich Hance all crossed for tries at Finstall Park.

And the result means Bromsgrove sit fifth in the Regional 1 Midlands table.

The Boars took an early three-point lead when Wlll Tanner kicked a penalty before Spalding crossed for the game’s first try on nine minutes.

And Hardwick dotted down the home side’s second try four minutes later as Tanner kicked the conversion before then adding another three points with a successful penalty attempt.

An impressive first-half display from the Boars saw Ingram touch down on 24 minutes before Spalding crossed for Bromsgrove’s bonus point try four minutes before the break from James Gunther’s unorthodox pass.

The Boars took a 36-point lead into the second period and picked up where they left off as Maddocks dotted down in the corner after leaving his tackler face down on the ground.

And further tries from Cubitt and Hance, who both made excellent line breaks, increased the home side’s lead before Kenilworth crossed for a consolation try late on.

Bromsgrove are next in action away at Old Halesonians on Saturday, January 20 with kick-off at 2.15pm at Wassell Grove Lane.
