GREYHOUND have a second chance to get away from danger at the foot of the Midlands Four West (North) table after their defeat in last weekend's clash at Tenbury was declared void.

The Worcestershire side were ahead 10-5 when the referee blew the final whistle but Greyhound appealed that the match had been contested for fewer than 60 minutes after stoppages for hail, thunder and lightning and a player being stretchered off with injury.

North Midlands RFU spokesman Paul Bolton confirmed: "The league secretary reviewed the circumstances and, having spoken to the referee, it was decided that the likelihood was that fewer than 60 minutes, the minimum required for a result, had been played.

"Therefore the match will be replayed."

The match will now be restaged at Palmers Meadow on Saturday - Greyhound are currently six points clear of their rivals in the table and have a game in hand.

Bromyard are still not completely clear of danger after suffering a 20-10 home defeat against local rivals and promotion-chasers Clee Hill.

Waterlogged pitches put paid to the games involving Hereford and Ross.
