RUGBY - LEDBURY 2nds 2, ROSS 2nds XV 5

Ross 2nds opened their league account on Saturday with a trip to Ledbury, however on a cold, sunny afternoon Ledbury were just too streetwise and eventually ran out comfortable 25 - 5 winners.

The young Ross side started well, with Mike and William putting in some big hits on the Ledbury forwards. However, Ross were unable to take advantage of this good work and halfway through the first half, it was Ledbury who opened the scoring with a try wide out on the left. This was converted by the Ledbury outside half and another penalty 10 minutes later, saw Ledbury go in at half time 10-0 ahead.

Playing downhill in the second half, Ross started well. Tim Chaney and Billybob were looking dangerous on the ball, but once again they could not find that killer pass or player in support to convert this good work into points. Ledbury punished them early in the fourth quarter with two quick tries, putting the game out of Rossís reach. Ross did rally late on and some good line-out work from Rob Jode and Richard Russell, saw second row, William crash over to score, giving a final score of 24 - 5 to Ledbury.

The Walford timber man of the match was debutant William.

Next Saturday, 2nd October Ross travel to Bromsgrove for another away league encounter. The bus leaves Ross at 12.45pm.
