Coventry Welsh 15 - Harbury 5
Coventry Welsh returned to winning ways with a hard earned victory over table topping Harbury. Going against the elements in the first half the Welsh denied Harbury any decent platform to attack with the pack, led by captain Keith Fletcher, getting to the break down first and the backs putting in a fine defensive display. 0-0 at the break the Welsh then took control of the scrum and lineout to release their backs only for Harbury to show their own defensive qualities. Indiscipline under pressure finally broke the deadlock as the referee awarded the Welsh 5 penalties in different areas of the pitch which Luke Horan despatched with precision to give his side a 15-0 lead. Harbury never gave up the game and when a quick penalty caught the Welsh defence napping in the final minutes they were rewarded with a well taken try. It was all to late however and the Welsh closed out the game to take 2 well deserved points.

Captain Hughes Leads From The Front

Honours were shared in a hard fought game at Harbury where the Welsh put in a much improved display against a strong home side. Leading from the front captain Russ Hughes scored a try, conversion and a penalty to add to a fine individual try from Dan Daymond.
