KICKING from Bryn Goodall was the difference as Hereford RFC made it three wins on the bounce with a 30-26 home win over Droitwich.

Both sides scored two tries in each half to pick up bonus points, but a drop goal and penalty for Goodall proved the difference between the sides.

Wyesiders' head coach, Sean Lynn said: "It was a solid performance and a third bonus point win.

"I would have bitten your hand off had I been offered that at the start of the season. The boys are growing in stature and it was a very mature performance.

"I thought Bryn Goodall kicking the corners was outstanding. The forwards stepped up, the driving mauls were very good and we showed a determination in defence at the end to close off the win.

"All together it was a very pleasing and mature performance, so excellent work and in readiness for Dudley Kingswinford next week.”

Hereford started well and went ahead on seven minutes when the ball was released from a ruck, moved through hands to Tom Williams who touched down in the corner.

Leon Parsons drove over a second try to put his side 12-0 ahead inside 15 minutes.

Droitwich, who had won and lost one coming into the tie, replied scoring two tries to draw back to 12-12 at the break.

A converted try from the re-start put the visitors ahead for the first time in the match.

Hereford had to work hard to pull back the deficit, a drop goal and a penalty, both from Goodall took them to within a point of drawing level.

Goodall then kicked through to Levi Hughes who raced over for the third try.

Luke Yarranton crashed over to seal a good win and to claim the bonus point try for the hosts, despite a late reply.
