Ludlow 27 pts Stafford 13 pts
THE outstanding Mark Williams took the plaudits from delighted coach Dave Irish after Ludlow’s home win in Midlands Two West (North).
Fly-half Williams bagged a second-half brace and Will Green also crossed for Ludlow, who stormed into a 27-6 ahead after 60 minutes.
Irish said: “Mark Williams is having a rich vein of form and is very good with his tactical kicking at the moment.
“We were level at 6-6 at the break but three converted tries in a 20-minute spell turned the match in our favour.”
Ludlow fell 6-0 down early on before two Will Sparrow penalties levelled matters at 6-6.
Sparrow later slotted three conversions.
Ludlow travel to Tamworth this Saturday. Irish said: “We will be going to Tamworth looking for a win but we also realise that winning at home with a bonus-point will be crucial this season.”
Meanwhile, 18-year-old scrumhalf Rhys Evans was Ludlow 2nd’s hero in a 59-5 home win over Aston Old Edwardians 2nd.
Evans scored a try and kicked seven conversions in Ludlow’s victory.
