last week's 'CricketForce' event, attended by Vikram Solanki,
Ross Rugby Club made a very generous donation of £1000.00

to Steve Earle, Chairman of Ross Cricket Club. To the

Rugby Club 2nds beat Westbury 3rds - see below the photo
. . .
a fine, sunny Sunday afternoon, Ross RFC 2nd XV played
Westbury 3rds in the quarter finals of the Forest of Dean
Miner Cup. With a mixture of youth and experience, the
match resulted in a hard fought victory to Ross by 15
on by a large crowd the forwards started to dominate the
scrums and line outs which enabled scrum half Gareth Holdworth
to dictate play with evergreen Owen James controlling
the same from fly half. Ross took the lead after twenty
minutes with a well struck penalty by James, only for
Westbury to strike back with an unconverted try. The second
half saw Westbury increase their lead with a penalty.
Ross hit back with a fine try by James, who converted.
The games was sealed by Westbury giving away a penalty
ten yards out. Captain, Richard James opted for a tap
move and was driven over by the rest of his forwards.
semi-final now looms with Drybrook, which will be another
home game. Man of the match went to captain Richard James,
who was playing his first game for three months after
going through the experience of becoming a parent.

who live at Symonds Yat West.
