Ross on wye 20 Brockworth 12

Champions…… Ross secured consecutive league winners last Saturday securing the title with a game to spare . whether it was nerves or complacency Ross made hard work of securing the league title against a Brockworth side who come to play ,they were the first to score after a break by their ten and very nearly added a second score shortly after ,but their winger dropped the scoring pass ,so at the end of a difficult first quarter Ross were thankfully only 7-0 down ,they began to work themselves back into the game in the second quarter Thai Hayward converted a penalty then winger Craig Smith squeezed over in the corner to score and take Ross finally into the lead 8-7 ,just before the break Craig added a second which Thai converted from the touchline and Ross went into half time 15-7 ahead.Ross for all their efforts were unable to shake off a determined Brockworth in the third quarter and as it wasn t until the 65 th minute that captain Casey Morgan extended their lead as he crashed over after a series of rucks close to the visitors line this put Ross 20-7 ahead ,Brockworth added a late try but Ross were able to run down the clock and secure their 2nd league title success in two years .
