Coventry Welsh 13 - Redditch 5
Coventry Welsh ensured a top 4 finish with a well deserved win over league leaders Redditch. In an entertaining game the first half saw both sides denied chances through some last ditch tackles.With the game scoreless at half time it was the Welsh who grew in confidence and gradually take control with some astute positional kicking keeping Redditch pinned in their own half. The pressure told midway through the second half as the Welsh pack , marshalled superbly by scrum half Russell Hughes, kept the ball alive for Simon Stubbs to crash over from close range. The try was converted by Luke Horan who added a penalty and a dropped goal to give the Welsh a 13 point lead going into the final 10 minutes. Redditch showed why they lead the league as they pressed hard to overcome a resolute Welsh defence and although they scored a try in the final minutes it was never enough to deny the home side a worthy win.
