Greyhound 20 pts Copsewood 3.

GREYHOUND won for the ninth time in nine outings to go eight points clear at the top of the Midlands Five West (South) table.

With 10 minutes played, a quickly-taken tap penalty saw Jamie Gibbons storm over for the opening try.

Dave Bromage added the conversion and kicked a penalty eight minutes later.

But, after that, Greyhound were often forced back on defence by the lowly-ranked Coventry-based visitors.

Copsewood dropped a goal with 15 minutes remaining and this finally seemed to stir Greyhound into action.

But it was with just eight minutes remaining that Bromage sent Gibbons over for his second try of the afternoon.

James Hybart powered over for the third try to round off the win in the 78th minute.
