Lichfield RUFC Vets 0 Burntwood RUFC 3rds 0

Burntwood RUFC 3rds travelled the short distance to Cook Fields to play Lichfield RUFC Vets and returned with that rarity in rugby union – a 0-0 scoreline to share the Merit Table points.

The strong breeze influenced play with Lichfield up against it in the first half and Burntwood in the second. Each side had just one kick at goal and both were off target.

With the midfield pairing of Matt Bray and Rob England cancelling out their opposite numbers and the packs evenly matched, with Mark Thomas to the fore for Burntwood, it became increasingly likely that one chance would decide the result and that chance fell to Jason Powell for Lichfield.

In the closing minutes, he burst off the back of a close-range scrum for the line only for winger Dan Garrity’s slender frame to knock the ball loose with a match-saving tackle.
