BROMSGROVE RFC were denied a losing bonus point at the death after losing 33-25 at Nuneaton as the Boars injury ravaged squad lost for a third successive match.
Tom Millen crossed for the game’s opening try with Will Harris adding two penalties to put the Boars into a six-point lead at the break.
And despite running in two further tries in the second half, Nuneaton struck four times at the other end with a touchline conversion ensuring Bromsgrove left empty-handed.
The result leaves the Boars in seventh place in the Midlands Premier table, with just one point separating Bromsgrove and fifth-placed Sandbach.
Injuries ripped through the Bromsgrove squad with eight players missing which forced the second XV’s game against Nuneaton postponed due to a lack of available players.
Despite their mounting injury list, Bromsgrove were six points up at the break and led by the same margin after the teams traded two tries apiece.
The game turned after Nuneaton scored a converted try following a deliberate knock on before the Nuns struck again with seconds left on the clock as the Boars tried to work the ball out wide.
Bromsgrove are next in action at home to Oundle on Saturday, March 26 with kick-off at 3pm at Finstall Park.
