Birmingham Civil Service 18, Redditch 36
REDDITCH made a roaring start to the Midlands Division Four West (South) as they put five tries past Birmingham.
Tom Saddington opened the scoring with a penalty after the visitors had soaked up Civil Service’s pressure.
The Kingfishers then took a grip on the game with some solid forward play, good rucking and some strong centre work by James Ritchie.
Saddington took the opportunity to step between the covering defence and touch down, converting his own try.
Redditch put together some nice interchanges and saw Tom Saddington beat two forwards and to score.
Civil Service finished the half with a penalty for their efforts.
Birmingham pulled a try back early in the second period but Redditch hit back with a series of scrums and line-outs to win a host of penalties.
Brynn Williams wasted a good chance but captain Phil Goddard was driven over for another try.
Williams made up for his error when he slid in for a try after some neat attacking play and Josh Holt ensured the bonus point for Redditch.
Redditch entertain Claverdon Saturday (3pm ko).
The seconds were beaten by Upton-on-Severn in the Worcester and Herefordshire Merit Table, while the Exiles were edged out 24-22 by Old Griffinians.
