Willenhall RUFC U16 5 Burntwood RUFC U16 5

Burntwood U16s were not at full strength due to illness, injury and county duties but they managed to draw 5-5 at home to near neighbours Willenhall in a typically hard-fought local derby.

The hosts took the lead with a fine try involving forwards and backs finished off by debut boy Luke Gunter in the corner.

Willenhall levelled straight from the second half kick off – their backs passing well for a try in the left corner.

Close to the final whistle the visitors had a try disallowed due to unclear grounding so the stalemate remained unbroken.

Ryan Percox was man of the match for Burntwood – a player who continues to improve with every game.
