AN EMPHATIC second half which saw 21 points without answer helped Hereford RFC to back-to-back home victories.

Following last week's home victory against local rivals Worcester Sean Lynn's side back it up with a 35-5 win over Longton.

After being given a guard of honour by boys from the under-13 team their side looked to impress by taking a third minute lead when the ball was off-loaded for Ollie Hutcheson to cross the whitewash.

As the game progressed the much bigger Longton forwards worked their way into the Hereford 22 and drew a score back.

After soaking up a period of pressure the Wyesiders went back on the attack and Sean Day crossed the score with Bryn Goodall kicking his second conversion to give them a 14-5 lead at the break.

Early in the second period, the Wyesiders ran the ball back from their own 22 and a break by Leon Parsons on half-way saw him brush off a tackle before running 50 yards to race over the line for the third try.

Hereford secured the try bonus when a Day kick to the corner led to an attacking lineout.

A good Hereford catch and drive saw the ball released and moved across field and back, before Richard Jones broke through the defensive cover to register the fourth try.

Goodall converted both tries and then completed a full house by adding the extras to the final try.

“Another great home win at Wyeside,” said Head Coach Lynn.

“All week we’ve been saying that we need to build up the wins and points and must keep ticking away.

"There were some really good individual performances today, Ollie Hutch was outstanding, Bryn Goodall in the 10 shirt managed the game and Sean Day made good use of his left boot putting us into the right areas.

"Top mention though, goes to Matt Pritchard, who again showed the mature physicality that gives us go forward in defence and attack.

"A special thank you to the under-13 squad for their support, it was lovely to see them down here. All in all, it was a great day at Wyeside.”
