On a cold but dry afternoon in Stourbridge, both sides started brightly looking to play some running rugby from the start. Veseyans were able to build some early pressure and opened the scoring with a penalty from Luxembourg international Full Back, Will Cope. The home side built themselves back into the game patiently with some big forward carries, and a defensive error in the midfield led to the first try of the afternoon for the home side.
The game continued in a similar vane for the rest for the afternoon with Veseyans having periods of pressure and then relieving them through errors, which Stourbridge capitalised on well.
In what has proved to be a frustrating season for the V’s their young players continue to work hard and develop, and they will be looking forward to the benefits this will bring over the next couple of seasons.
Next week, the Vs travel to Kidderminster in the semi final of the North Midlands Shield, looking to book a date against Old Salts in the final on May 8th.
