Pershore continued their rich vein of form with this comfortable win.

Running rugby could have been difficult, with the difficult pitch

conditions,but Pershore played some great stuff, in particular in the

first half, where they spread the ball wide, and used their powerful

ball carriers to create holes in the Kings Norton defence. With the wind

at their backs in the first half, Pershore made their intent clear from

the start, when straight from the kick off, the ball was sped to the

wing very quickly, Josh Small stepped inside his winger, cut inside the

full back and touched down. Pershore began to take control up front, and

provided their backs with a glut of ball. With this possession, Pershore

soon had numerous scoring opportunities, but a last pass was dropped or

did not go to hand. But this constant pressure had to tell, and when

second row Marcus Whyte found himself out on the wing, he gave two

outrageous dummies, and gave a lovely inside pass to Josh Small, who

quickly doubled his tally. Lewis Dolphin converting. With the forwards

continuing to dominate, they soon spent time in the Kings Nortons 22,

putting together several phases of play. A dynamic ruck splintered the

Norton defence, and the gap was exploited by Alex Peel who crashed over,

again Dolphin kicked the conversion. Pershore were now playing some

great attacking rugby, with the forwards and backs interpassing and

leaving Norton chasing shadows, but it was a set piece move which

provided the next score. From a line out the ball was quickly spun to

Dolphin, whos miss pass to Matt Cyphus, was timed to perfection, who in

turn popped to Andy Jenkinson who cut a lovely line of attack to touch

down, Dolphin converting. On the stroke of half time Pershores

adventureous play was again rewarded when Josh Small completed his hat

trick. As with the previous week, Pershore seemed to take their foot off

the pedal in the second half, and started a confrontational battle with

the Kings Norton forwards, who in turn slowed the game right down ,

which suited them. The first time Pershore attacked with menace, was

from their own try line, Martin Hope crashed through the midfield, and

popped the ball inside to Steve Holmes, who impressively ran from inside

his own half, to touch down under the posts, again Dolphin converted.

The majority of the second half was a little scrappy, with Kings Norton

not giving up, and in fact putting together periods of possession, but

failing to convert into points. With the second half coming to an end,

Andy Jenkinson soared down the wing, his cross kick was gathered by

Martin Hope , who crossed the whitewash. The last kick of the game was

Dolphins conversion.
