HMP Featherstone 70 Burntwood RUFC 2nds 39

Burntwood RUFC 2nds were involved in a high scoring Merit game at HMP Featherstone.

The visitors found themselves well behind at half time but made a game of it in the second period before injuries reduced them to 13 players.

As is so often the case against the inmates, Burntwood had the edge in the forwards but once the inmates moved the ball wide they had pace to burn.

The second half fightback was helped by two tries from Paul Rogers, who had come on as a first half replacement for Mark Thomas, and one each for Mark Partridge and Rhys Corbally. The injuries to Danny Smith and Matt killed off their chances of further progress.

Burntwood RUFC 2nds are in the Fixture Pool on Saturday (September 25) while the 3rds host Cannock 2nds.
