Bredon Star 8 - Coventry Welsh 35 (including 2XV report)
Coventry Welsh travelled to Bredon Star in what could have been a tricky fixture with the home side topping their league table. Bredon took the lead in the 5th minute with a penalty. The score galvanised the Welsh who began to dominate the set pieces. It was from a line out that the Welsh opened their scoring with a catch and drive that saw Mark Ellis touch down. 5 minutes later the Welsh opted for touch from a penalty and repeated the move resulting in a second try for Mark Ellis this one duly converted by Luke Horan. Bredon Star then showed why they are doing so well in the league with some fine handling that led to a try. The second half was only minutes old when a clearance kick from Bredon was caught on his own 22m line by Craig Browning who jinked his way through several tacklers, chipped over the cover defence and gathered the ball to go over under the posts for a fine individual try. Luke Horan converted then added a penalty. The Welsh responded to the Bredon attack with some ferocious tackling that saw the home team thwarted at every turn. As the game progressed the Welsh forwards put together a series of drives and when 10m out popped the ball to Liam Horan who at speed was never going to be denied his try. Luke Horan converted. The Welsh rounded off the day with the best try as the forwards set up the backs whose quick hands broke Bredon`s defence and saw winger Craig Browning join the line to take the telling pass for his second try once again converted by Luke Horan.

Warwickians 2nds 29 Coventry Welsh 2nds 29

Coventry Welsh 2nds returned with a well earned draw that they felt they should easily have won. A hat trick of tries to Ali Burr with Russ Brown snr and Ed Molloy getting singles converted by Andy Gardner gave the Welsh a 29-5 lead at half time. The second half saw Warwickians bring on fresh legs who gradually evened the score.
