Your News Bedworth 42 - Pershore 22

A lethargic first half performance, and an inspired display by Bedworth,

culminated in Pershore losing the match by half time. For all Pershores

attempts at being competitive in the first half, they were put to the

sword by a rampant Bedworth team, whos back row, and in particular their

No8 , consistently drove through the heart of the Pershore pack, making

the hard yards, and forcing Pershore always on to the back foot. It was

not long before a stern defence was broken, and Bedworth ran in some

good first half tries. In fact so dominant was their performance, that

they led 32 - 0 at half time. Much to Pershores credit though, as heads

could have gone down, they fought back well in the second half.

Eventually they gained parity up front, and their big ball carriers

started to take the ball on, putting together several phases of play,

with Marcus Whyte eventually crashing over. From the kick off, quick

hands in the backs, and a sniping run from Adrian Hanson, breached the

Bedworth defence , and Steff Ellis touched down, Woodhouse converting.

With Pershore attacking at every opportunity, their efforts were further

rewarded when from a lineout Marcus Whyte brushed off two defenders to

complete his double. With the first half now a distant memory, Pershore

gained their bonus point, when skipper Alex Peel crossed the whitewash,

after a succession of rucks on the Bedworth line. However, Bedworth

finished off the match as a contest when they touched down twice in the

last five minutes, after Pershores second half efforts had led to a

tired, and stretched defence.
