LEDBURY RFC made it back-to-back wins at the weekend as they battled past Bromsgrove 2s at Ross Road.

On a dry pitch with no wind, it was the visitors who took the initiative in finding space with a huge clearance kick with no defence, allowing the full back to run in untouched for a 0-7 lead.

But they responded soon afterwards when George bennion dummied his way over the line to draw Ledbury level. 

Bromsgrove extended their lead to 7-10 from the tee but Rob Gummer scored for a second consecutive weekend to put the hosts back ahead 12-10. 

There was also a yellow card in the build-up to that try for Bromsgrove, who got to half-time in touch but down to 14 men. 

Into the second-half, there were chances for both sides at either end of the pitch but Ledbury were first to register points as Bennion slotted a penalty to make it 15-10.

But another penalty from the visitors kept them within reach heading towards the final 10 minutes. 

It was Ledbury’s superior fitness that came into play in the closing stages and a probing clearance kick from Dan Smith made touch in good territory and saw Ledbury launch an attack from an ensuing scrummage, resulting in a try for Ed Bennion.

Once again Ledbury were punished for their ill-discipline as another three-pointer reduced the gap Ledbury had opened up, 22-16.

But the home side would seal the win late on as Gummer touched down for his second of the day and Bennion's conversion meant the final score read 29-16 in Ledbury's favour.

The victory keeps them in touch with the leading pack, sitting in fourth place in the Counties 1 Midlands West (South).
