Vase title for Newent
12:16pm Friday 15th February 2013 in Rugby
NEWENT Rugby Club continued to rule their division after securing the South West Counties Junior Vase title against New Cross.
The leaders followed up the cup final victory with a 36-0 Gloucestershire League Division One victory over Kingswood at the Recreation Ground.
In the 33-10 Vase win over the Devon outfit, fly-half Joe Goatley gave them an early 10-0 lead with a penalty, try and conversion.
Another Goatley try was countered by a penalty before number eight John Duffin crashed over to extend the lead and a visitors’ converted effort made it 20-10 at the break.
Newent, who head to Longlevens tomorrow (2.30pm), added second-half tries through Richard Merrett and Barney Goatley alongside a Joe Goatley penalty.
Their next tie is the South West Junior Vase final at Chesham a week tomorrow.
* Ledbury head to Midlands Three West (South) leaders Old Coventrians tomorrow (2.15pm) after losing 19-3 at Pinley which sent them back to second-frombottom in the table.
