HEREFORD RFC made the most of their chances and registered two tries in each half beating Old Halesonians 26-5.

Old Hales claimed their solitary try, early in the second half and although they had plenty of possession later in the game, the Hereford defence remained solid.

The score was in no way flattering to Hereford, who took their run of home wins to three.

The Wyesiders took a 27th minute lead through a Dan Stacey try before Levi Hughes crossed the whitewash to give Hereford a 14-0 lead at the break.

Old Halesonians pulled a try back after the break to spark the contest into life.

However, both Joe Vaughan and then Jack Goodwin ran over a bonus point try.

Hereford head coach, Scott Sturdy was pleased with another good performance on a heavy pitch.

He said: “This was a difficult challenge playing against a team just above us in the league.

"They had beaten us fairly comfortably, away at the start of the season and one of the messages we spoke about during the week was having to play for 80 minutes.

"It was pleasing that the lads brought that to life and we played some good attacking rugby with ball in hand."
