RUGBY - FRAMPTON COTTERELL 44, ROSS 1st XV 0

Ross were unable to replicate their recent good home form on to the road last Saturday and found themselves well beaten by a well drilled and organized Frampton side. Defeat for relegation rivals Brockworth however virtually ensure Gloucester Premier rugby for Ross next season. It seemed the long journey had not left the away team as Frampton started strongly and some weak Ross tackling enabled Frampton to get on the front foot from the whistle. They never relinquished this in the first half and were able to run in five unanswered tries and go in at half time 32-0 ahead.

At this stage it looked as if Ross were in serious danger of conceding a hundred points, however, some half time soul searching at least ensured that the second half was a proper full on contest. Ross may not have troubled the scorers however they ensured that for the second half the home team had to fight for every yard and piece of possession. This saw Ross prevent the home team adding to their total until the last 5 minutes, where two late scores detracted from a much improved second half performance.

Ross have a week off league action next Saturday, however they will be travelling to Cinderford for the Quarter final of the Forest Combination Cup on Friday, 1st April. Kick off is at 7.30pm.
