Bromyard 22 pts Cleobury Mortimer 5 pts
BROMYARD produced their best display of the season yesterday to inflict a first defeat on second-placed Cleobury Mortimer in Midlands Four West (North).
The Herefordshire outfit were the better side in the rain-swept conditions at the Clive Richards Sports Ground and deserved their third victory of the campaign.
Sixth-placed Bromyard could have won by a bigger margin – Chris Rowberry missed three penalties in the swirling conditions.
The hosts played into a strong wind in the opening half and set up their victory after building a 7-5 lead at the interval.
Bromyard made a perfect start, Rowberry charging down an attempted Cleobury clearance and John Parker picking up the loose ball to touch down.
Rowberry added the conversion but the visitors hit back with a fine try in the left-hand corner from Ben Howman.
The hosts had the wind in their favour after the interval and extended their lead through Rowberry’s penalty before Cleobury’s Sam Sutton was yellow carded.
Jamie Williams’ men increased their lead from a scrum, Scott Holloway being driven over and Rowberry converting to put Bromyard 17-5 ahead.
Bromyard had the final word from a five-metre scrum when the ball was switched to Toby Rivers, who cut through a gap to touch down.
