HEREFORD RFC blew aside league strugglers Kidderminster Carolians 43-8 to make it 10 games unbeaten at their Wyeside ground.

Head coach Sean Lynn got the reaction he required from last weekend's defeat as his side ran over seven tries in the convincing display.

Head Coach, Sean Lynn said: "It was a good result in the end and to score 43 points at home is great.

"The game was a bit scrappy at first, but as soon as we started playing the phases, we came good.

"It was really good stuff from the forwards, set piece went really well and it was good to see young James Chamberlain back.

"I thought he had a very good game as did hooker, Will Goffey on his debut.

"The strength in depth is coming through and it was great to maintain our undefeated home record, hopefully we can build on it against Lichfield next week.

"There is nothing more I could ask from the players than the positive reaction shown after the tough loss at Kenilworth. They learned from last week and took their opportunities as they came.”

However, Hereford were slow to make a start and it was their visitors who took an early lead with a penalty goal when the hosts were caught offside.

The Wyesiders soon got into their stride and a lineout inside the Kidderminster 22, drew the defence in allowing Leon Parsons to score out wide in the corner.

Rhys Proctor took try number two before a quick tap penalty opened up play for Richard Preece to put his side out of sight with a third score.

As the half closed, Kidderminster reduced the deficit with a try in the corner following a driving maul, the conversion failed and the teams changed ends with Hereford leading 17-8.

The Wyesiders started the second half with a bang and secured their bonus point in the opening minute when some good handling saw Bryn Goodall outflank the defensive cover, converted his own try.

Kidderminster lost a man for ten minutes in the bin and whilst they were a man short the hosts capitalised with number eight Josh Bell touching down.

In the final minutes, Tom Starkey and Tom Ewins each added a try and Bryn Goodall improved both of them, taking the final score to 43-8.
