Another Fantastic Win

1 week ago By john oakden

Firsts win away at Hereford

A performance of immense courage and steadfastness enabled a Whitchurch side supposedly "weakened" by absences reverse the result from earlier this season. There was no sign of weakness from any of the North Shropshire men and they stifled the Hereford charge and turned it into a whimper. They fell behind to a penalty which, not contentious in its award, was very contentious in its completion. The kick appeared to be outside the outward leaning posts and both touch judges shrugged their shoulders. The referee awarded the points but, again, both touch judges were signalling that they had now considered it and believed it to have missed. The referee chose to ignore them and Whitchurch found themselves three points down. It stayed this way until half time despite several clear chances going begging from the visitors. The second half saw the forwards take control and it was no surprise when a five metre scrum ended with a pushover try which Danny Nicolas converted. Whitchurch now had almost all the pressure but a single penalty from Tomas Skone was all they had to show in the way of points.
The win keeps Whitchurch in third spot in the league but increases their points difference to four from fourth placed Dudley KW.
This Saturday we are at home to a resurgent Longton and a great game is promised.
