Boars beaten in derby clash
10:38am Thursday 31st October 2013 in Sport
Birmingham Solihull 40, Bromsgrove 12
Bromsgrove suffered another bout of away day blues when they went down to the improving Bees at Portway.
The Boars had to make five changes from the previous week and they never really got into the match.
It started badly when they put themselves under pressure on their own line and the energetic Bees captain Will Radburn scored from close range, Ian Briggs converting.
The hosts seemed to gain a lot of confidence from the early score and played with flair and commitment.
Bromsgrove, in comparison, looked disorganized and afraid to take responsibility.
Bees scored three more tries in a one-sided half, two from winger David Evans and one from number eight Robert Connell, all of which were converted.
The Boars were their own worst enemies in many ways falling off tackles.
The only part of the game that was effective was the pick-and-drive which led to a converted try for Matt Edgar.
The second-half went much the same way as the first with Bees on top and Bromsgrove scrambling in defence.
The hosts managed two further tries. Evans completed his hat-trick and 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.
The Boars did have the final say with Chris Morgan being driven over on 70 minutes.
Bromsgrove, who are fourth from bottom in the league, tacke on fellow strugglers Caldy at home on Saturday (2.15pm ko).
