Burntwood RUFC Veterans 34 Brinsford Prison Officers 10

It was a busy week for Burntwood RUFC’s old guard as the Veterans hosted Brinsford Prison Officers.

They dominated the first half and then survived a second half comeback by the visitors to win 34-10.

Craig Addy put his side ahead as early as the fifth minute, scoring from a close-range tapped penalty. Four minutes later, a great break out by Simon Ptolomey, Matt Cummins and Ian Cooper led to a try for Dave Tyler which Addy converted.

Addy was also involved in the third try just before the break. His chip and chase resulted in a try for Jimmy Davies to make it 17-0.

Cummins ran half the length of the pitch early in the second period to put his side in good field position. Jason Megan almost followed up to score but from the ensuing scrum Addy crossed the line for his second. He completed his hat trick 10 minutes into the second half after Cooper had done the spadework.

Brinsford mounted a sustained attack during the next 10 minutes and got off the mark with a try from close range.

Six minutes later they added a try from long range but any hopes they had of a comeback were ended at the restart. Cummins collected direct from the kick off and went clean through to the posts for a try converted by Martin Ottey.
