Midlands Reserve League - Division 2
With last weekend designated as a rest/catch-up weekend in the M1W league calendar, Sutton 1st XV were freed from the rigours of league rugby on the Saturday as they were without a scheduled league game, so the Sutton second string stepped into the spotlight when they travelled to Doitwich to face a strong Droitwich 2nd XV and they rose to the occasion to produce an excellent 36-31 victory in a close fought and highly entertaining contest.
Sutton made a strong start and had a good first half establishing an impressive 22-7 lead by halftime but the home side bounced back in the second period scoring a further 24 points, however, Sutton held their game together and by close of play the visitors had registered 6 tries & 3 conversions whilst restricting their opponents to 4 tries, 4 conversions and a penalty in the 36-31 victory.
The Sutton try scorers were led by T J Allwood, who scored a brace followed by Sean Harrison, John Corkin, Nick Bodington and Ben Garratty, who contributed a try apiece in the bonus point win with Chris Hendley adding 3 conversions to complete the scoring.
