BROMYARD completed a league double over county rivals Greyhound after holding on for a 17-10 victory on Saturday.

In form Bromyard, who have won 11 of their 15 fixtures so far this season, started on the front foot with James Mitchell going over for the opening try before Kev Murphy kicked a penalty in reply.

John Pudge then clinched a second try for the visitors to give them a 10-3 lead at half-time.

Tough weather conditions meant that the game was dominated by the packs of each side. Patrick Hall increased Bromyard's lead and then converted his own try to put them into a strong position at 17-3 ahead.

However, Greyhound battled back once again and James Pardoe crossed the whitewash to set up a grandstand finish.

Bromyard held on through the final minutes to secure victory by seven points.

Their latest win follows their 54-14 win over Greyhound in November.

The victory meant that Bromyard have now accumulated 33 points following a 20-point deduction earlier in the season following an administration error.

"It was quite tough conditions which meant the forwards dominated the game," said Bromyard first team manager Tom Hulburd.

"Josh Ridley was our captain on the day while John Pudge was our man of the match.

"Other than our points deduction I have really enjoyed this season. It has given us a chance to give some of our newer players time to get bloodied.

"I think we can push for promotion next season."
