More away day woes for Bromsgrove

Birmingham Solihull 40, Bromsgrove 12
Bromsgrove suffered another bad bout of away day blues on Saturday when they went down to the improving Bees at Portway.
Town had to make five changes from the previous week which obviously disrupted the side and they never really got into the match.
It started particularly badly when they put themselves under pressure on their own line and the energetic home captain Will Radburn scored from close range, Ian Briggs converting.
The home side seemed to gain a lot of confidence from the early score and played with a lot of flair and commitment.
Bromsgrove, in comparison, looked disorganized and afraid to take responsibility, David Hughes being a notable exception.
Bees scored three more tries in a one-sided half , two from winger David Evans and one from their useful number eight Robert Connell, all of which were converted.
Bromsgrove were their own worst enemies in many ways falling off tackles which just encouraged the home side. The only part of the game that was effective was the pick and drive which eventually led to a score for Matt Edgar. 28-7 at half-time.
The second half went much the same way as the first with Bees on top and Bromsgrove scrambling in defence.
The home side managed two further tries, Evans completed his hat-trick and sub Joseph Mogaji got their last, Briggs again converting.
Bromsgrove made a raft of substitutions in the last quarter with Alex Woodward and Uri Shutkever having an impact.
Town did have the final say with Chris Morgan being driven over on 70 minutes.
The Boars, who are fourth from bottom in the league, tacke on fellow strugglers Caldy at home on Saturday (2.15pm ko).
