PATIENCE was a virtue for Hereford as they made it two league wins on the bounce with a 29-5 win at Whitchurch.

Hereford opened slowly and the home team took a narrow lead on 13 minutes.

However, the Wyesiders' patience soon paid dividends with Connor Sullivan, Tom Ewins and Bryn Goodall crossing the whitewash before half-time, all converted by Bryn Goodall to gave them a 24-5 lead at the interval.

The second half saw some solid defence by both teams and it was not until the closing minutes that Hereford closed off a bonus point win with a Rhys Proctor unconverted try.

Hereford Head Coach, Sean Lynn said: "It was a great performance from the boys today.

"Our key message was to show patience in defence.

"We knew what Whitchurch could do, they ran the ball and we spread the field, we forced mistakes and capitalised on them.

"Team captain Tom Ewins led from the front. He never stopped tackling and everything he did was forward, with ball in hand and in defence.

"It was great to see Rhys Proctor coming on, he caught the defence napping, made several good breaks and finished off with a try in the corner to seal the bonus point.

"The boys were outstanding, I could not fault the team effort and it was a very mature performance to earn the bonus point win.”
