HEREFORDSHIRE’S two leading rugby sides enjoyed excellent afternoons with valuable wins.

Luctonians won for the second time in a week when they saw off high-flying rivals Caldy with a 29-10 success at Mortimer Park to move back up to eighth in the National Two North table.

And Hereford, like their north Herefordshire rivals, maintained their unbeaten start to 2013 with a 10-0 home success against Walsall in Midlands One West.

Ledbury also enjoyed an excellent afternoon and continue to move towards safety in Midlands Three West South after winning 31-16 at Evesham.

But it was a disappointing afternoon for Bromyard who were conclusively beaten 32-0 at Barton-under-Needwood in Midlands Four West North.

Greyhound continue to make the pace in Midlands Five West South after a thrilling 37-35 win at Rugby Welsh.

But Ross saw their promotion hopes in Gloucester take a knock when they were beaten 21-0 at the Bristol Aeroplane Company.

Westfields returned with a point from their long trip to Heather St Johns in the Midland Alliance after a 3-3 draw.

But it was a disappointing day for the two sides in the West Midlands League Premier Division whose games survived the overnight rain, with Wellington losing 4-0 at Wulfrunians and Bromyard Town beaten by the odd goal in five at Wolverhampton Sporting Community.

It was a bad day, too, for Leominster Town in Division One, battered 6-1 at Trysull.

Lads Club, though, maintained their unbeaten record and moved up to fifth place in Division Two with a 4-3 home win over Mahal Reserves.
