     Ross took their unbeaten run to played 13 won 13 with a comfortable win at a wet Greytree last Saturday,the 45-0 scoreline looks emphatic ,however the visitors enjoyed their fair share of the ball and territory but they could not break down a well organised and dogged Ross defence and in between Ross managed to run in seven tries ,three in the first half and four in the second. It was Chris Price who got Ross on the scoreboard after 15 minutes taking a short pass from fly half AJ he burst through a gap in the visitors defence to score under the posts which Thai Hayward converted and Ross were 7-0 ahead  and against the run of play. With scrum and lineout working well Ross were able to secure a good amount of quality ball and it wasn t long before they added their second score as scrum half Ben Element picked up from the back of a ruck on the halfway saw no defenders on the blind side and raced half the pitch to score in the corner putting Ross 12-0 ahead.on the stroke of half time Dan Field added another after some great inter passing by Thai Hayward and Marcus Barnard, Thai added the two and Ross went into the break 19-0 ahead.The second half played out much the same as the first Bristol had periods were they dominated possession and territory but the Ross defence refused to yield and when Ross did get their hands on the ball they were clinical. Marcus Barnard was the first to add to the score with a mazy run from halfway saw him weave his way to the line again Thai added the two and Ross went 26-0 clear. PJ Muldowney then added a score wide out on the left putting Ross 31-0 ahead. Bristol hit back with a series of attacks deep in the Ross twenty two and it looked as if they would score but Marcus robbed the ball on his own line then ran the length of the pitch to score,this put Ross 38-0 ahead. Josh Element added another score late on which Thai converted and Ross ran out comfortable winners 45-0. Next Saturday Ross are away in Bristol at Broad Plain a 2.30pm kick off
