Burntwood RUFC A team see off challenge of Lichfield RUFC 3rds

Burntwood RUFC’s A XV kept their place at the top of the merit table with their fourth win in four starts after returning from Matt neighbours Lichfield 3rds with a 17-3 win.

Dave Ward’s side made a slow start and fell behind to a penalty goal.

The Burntwood forwards gradually roused themselves and set up an attack for Craig Seedhouse to score in the corner.

Suitably encouraged, the forwards went on to dominate during the rest of the first half and paved the way for Charlie Liggins to score.

All the scoring was completed before the break when skipper Ward took off from the back of a ruck to side step his way over from 30 metres for a try converted by Liggins.

The second period proved to be a stalemate as the Burntwood forwards and defence prevented any comeback by the hosts.
