Hereford coach Mark Harris delighted after Midlands One West success against Kenilworth

Hereford 40 pts Kenilworth 17 pts.
HEREFORD coach Mark Harris was delighted after the Wyesiders maintained their unbeaten home record with a conclusive Midlands One West win.
“I was pleased with our ball retention and I want us to carry on playing an open, free-running and off-loading game,” he said.
“One day it will lead to a hatful of tries.”
There were six scores to enjoy against Kenilworth with the first coming after 20 minutes when Jamie Bullock, Ali McColl and Giles Sayner combined to send in Tom Ewins.
Morgan Goodall added the first of five successful conversions.
Nat Thomas added a second, unconverted try from the restart and, although Tom Kendall kicked a penalty to cut arrears, Sayner set up Jamie Humphreys for a third try.
Good work by Perry Pudge sent in Goodall for the bonus point try and, although Jack Gibson’s try was converted by Kendal before the break, Hereford still held a convincing 26-10 lead at the interval.
Handling errors frustrated Hereford’s attempts to extend their lead at the start of the second period but, 10 minutes in, Goodall gathered his own kick ahead and touched down for a fine individual try.
Half-time replacement Lloyd Collier scythed through the visiting defence for the final Hereford try, again converted by Goodall.
But Kenilworth battled right to the end and Jake Dodd’s touchdown, converted by Kendall, was the final score of the game.
“Our margin of victory could have been greater had some of the missed passes stuck,” admitted Hereford spokesman Robin Davies.
