RUGBY UNION: A BELOW par performance saw Harbury lose out to Tenbury in their latest Midlands 4 West (South) contest.
Tenbury, who were yet to win a match this season prior to Saturday’s game, took full advantage of Harbury’s poor passing and handling errors to win 19-14.
They had to come from behind though as Harbury opened the scoring through Jamie Bearman who took Mark Anderson’s pass close to the try line to earn the visiting side a seven-point lead.
Poor handling again let Harbury down again after centre Steve Alford made a determined 20 metre break, but the offload went to ground and a chance to add to the score went begging.
A penalty to Tenbury was kicked deep and their mobile and feisty pack managed to work the ball wide as their right wing squeezed into the corner for an unconverted try.
Tenbury added to their try tally moments later to lead 12-7 before the home side extended their lead to 12 points at 19-7.
Another determined display by the forwards ensured Harbury pinched a second try.
But it proved too little too late as Tenbury ran out winners.
Harbury host Bedworth on Saturday. Kick off is at 2.15pm.
