DROITWICH Rugby Club will travel to Whitchurch in this season's RFU Midlands Intermediate Cup final on Saturday, March 17.

Whitchurch booked their place in the regional final with a home win over Newark in the semi-finals while Droitwich won at Leek.

The winner will progress to the semi-finals of the RFU Intermediate Cup.

Meanwhile, Droitwich kept up their 100 per cent record at the top of Midlands Two West (South) with a 26-20 win at Earlsdon.

The Coventry hosts put in a spirited performance but had to settle for a losing bonus point in a game that could have gone either way.

Better accuracy and fewer errors from Droitwich secured a tight victory ahead of a week off from league action.

Initial ill-discipline from Earlsdon allowed Spa to make quick territory and a maul was set up to drive over the line after nine minutes for a converted try.

Earlsdon regained possession soon after the restart, controlling the tempo well and finding holes in the defence until space opened up out wide on the right for an unconverted effort.

Earlsdon were soon back in the Droitwich 22 after ill-discipline from the visitors and the pack provided the next unconverted score after a series of dominant scrums helped them over.

More pressure allowed Earlsdon to extend the lead with a well-taken penalty only for the deficit to be reduced swiftly.

Droitwich picked blind from a scrum, drawing in two defenders and passing for a try out wide with the conversion missed as they trailed 13-12 at half-time.

Spa came out after the break with a point to prove and quickly pressured the try-line.

Stubborn defence and a home yellow card nullified the attack but the possession inevitably paid off as Droitwich squeezed over in the corner for a converted try to regain the lead.

Earlsdon worked hard to get back into the game but errors swept in and they gave away possession.

A mistake gifted Spa their bonus-point try as a knock-on was hacked through and a bounce deflected off an Earlsdon player to allow a simple converted try.

But the home side refused to give up and a red card for Droitwich increased the pressure on them.

However, a resilient defence refused to allow Earlsdon through and their final converted try on 80 minutes was only enough for a losing bonus point.

Droitwich seconds thrashed Luctonians thirds 74-5.

Spa’s first XV are back in league action on Saturday, March 3, at home to fifth-placed Worcestershire rivals Evesham.
