Old Halesonians RUFC U14 5 Burntwood RUFC U14 17

Burntwood RUFC U14s returned from Old Halesonians RUFC with a fine 17-5 win against fancied opposition.

On a damp, heavy pitch the hosts exerted early pressure and eventually squeezed through on the left wing for an unconverted try.

After the break, Burntwood began to break free to put Old Hales under sustained pressure. Rory Newhall chipped through for man of the match Josh Birch to blast in for an excellent try.

This inspired the rest of the side who piled on the pressure. Superb interplay set Ben Tranter flying down the right wing to run round to the posts for a try converted by Newhall.

Burntwood then took advantage of a dispirited home side. Inspirational driving by the forwards set Dan Bickley up to score his first try for the club.

The pick of the forwards was Brad Tranter whilst Liam Baker impressed in the backs.

On Sunday morning (February 14) the U14s are at home to Willenhall.
