6:00am Thursday 24th October 2013 in Sport
Woodrush 51, Greyhound 7
YOUTHFUL Woodrush cruised into the third round of the Junior Vase as they put Greyhound to the sword on Saturday.
Fielding young debutants James Gordon and Ben Smith, the Wythall-based outfit ran riot with an avalanche of tries.
Captain Matt Playford opened the scoring after just five minutes, with Andrew Poole and Anton Taylor adding a brace each as half-time approached.
A debut try for Smith followed by a trademark bulldozing try from Luke Russell saw Woodrush power to 39 points.
Greyhound lifted their game in the second half, restricting Woodrush to just two further scores.
Josh Tomlinson bagged a fine solo effort and Taylor completed his hat- trick after 45 minutes.
Greyhound defiantly kept the home team out thereafter deservedly scoring one of their own in the last minute to leave the game 51-7.
Woodrush take on Old Coventrians away in the Midlands Division Four West (South) on Saturday.
