Burntwood RUFC 3rds 32 Wednesbury RUFC 2nds 5

Burntwood RUFC 3rds overcame Wednesbury RUFC 2nds in a Merit Table game at The Sportsway by 32-5 with virtually all the scoring coming in the first half.

The hosts ran in all of their five tries before the break to one by the visitors. Two conversions by Craig Addy made it 29-5 but the expected avalanche in the second half was restricted to a solitary penalty goal by Addy.

The tries came at regular intervals with Hal Gozukucuk scoring the first after 10  minutes, going in under the posts. Wednesbury responded with their only score of the match.

Gary Till and David Forsyth both scored on their debuts for the club with further tries coming from Mark Willson and Matt Lee.

After the break, Wednesbury changed tactics to control possession through their forwards. When Burntwood tried to run their limited supply they were over ambitious and made too many errors to extend their lead.

The 3rds are in Merit Table action this Saturday (January 30th) against St. Leonards 2nds.
