Evesham 21 - Coventry Welsh 13 (including 2XV report)
Coventry Welsh were caught cold in the first half by a well drilled Evesham side who raced into an 18-3 half time lead. The home side scored a penalty and 3 well taken tries through their speedy backline before the Welsh replied with a penalty to Luke Horan. The second half was a much tighter affair as the Welsh regrouped to put Evesham under some pressure. Evesham showed they can defend as well as attack as they kept the Welsh at bay before Luke Horan slotted over another penalty. Evesham replied with a penalty to take the score to 21-6. The Welsh came back to pin the home side in their own 22 and after some sustained pressure Mark Ellis crashed over from close in to score a well deserved try duly converted by Luke Horan.

Coventry Welsh 2nds progressed to the final with an emphatic win over their local visitors. The Welsh made the better start and forced Coventrians into making mistakes which resulted in a try in the corner to Bill Parker. More pressure saw the Welsh turn the ball over for Paul Summers to sprint over for another try converted by Clive Jackson. Coventrians replied with a couple of penalties but the Welsh came back and some fine handling saw Clive Jackson out run the covering defence for another try. With the Welsh dominant at the breakdown further scores came from Sam Rafferty and another to Clive Jackson who also added 2 conversions and a penalty.
