HEREFORD RFC had to settle for a draw in their second league match of the season as they were held 10-10 against Droitwich.

The Wyesiders had to come from behind as after 13 minutes Droitwich capitalised on an elementary mistake by Hereford to run in under the posts.

A successful conversion gave them a seven-point lead which they were able to increase with a well struck penalty from half way.

The visitors responded shortly before the break when a successful catch and drive saw Matt Frost touch down for the first Hereford try.

As the second half progressed the Hereford pack gained control with some heavy carrying particularly from Jamie Humphreys, Frost and Scott Robinson. They forced several penalties working their way into the Droitwich 22 and a drive from the lineout saw Matt Frost touch down for his second try which was unconverted for a draw.

"We made too many unforced errors again which is a recurring theme from last week," said Hereford head coach Scott Sturdy.

"The one try Droitwich scored was from one of our own errors, catching and passing in the wrong area of the field."
