BROMYARD have been deducted five points for failing to register a player.

The county side have already lost their opening three games in Midlands 3 West (South) following their promotion and now have it all to do to stay up.

Bromyard chairman Farmer Parker confirmed the player was not registered for the match against Upton-on-Severn earlier in the season.

"It was a clerical area for failing to register a player," said Parker.

"I think it's going to be a real struggle now, especially as Greg and George Leighton have got to play cricket in Austrlia."

Last Saturday, Bromyard picked up a losing bonus point after losing 17-10 to leaders Woodrush.

The home side led at half time thanks to a Jamie Gibbons try, but conceded two quick tries after the break.

A Bobby Ralph penalty narrowed the deficit, but Woodrush held on for the win.

In the same division, Ledbury beat Upton-on-Severn 46-12 thanks to five tries from Dan Sewell.

Marcus Ballinger and George Bennion also touched down, while Ben Smith kicked over a drop goal.

Greyhound picked up their second win of the season in Midlands 5 West (North) after beating St Leonards 20-17.

Elliot Phillips scored the decisive try – his second of the match – to win the game.

Liam Webdale also scored a try, with Chris Fisher adding the extras.

Ross-on-Wye meanwhile have now scored 200 points in Gloucester 2 after thrashing Bristol Aeroplane Company 71-0.

Marcus Bemand (four) and Matt King (three) shared the majority of the tires, with Thai Hayward, Jon Baynham, Gavin Oates and Louis Morgan also on the scoresheet.
