TENBURY RFC rounded off a perfect first half of the Midlands Five West North season by grinding out a 8-0 win at Chaddesley Corbett.

Zach Thompson’s first-half penalty and Hobie Gill’s unconverted second-half try gave the league leaders victory despite being far from their best.

Tenbury go into the Christmas break four points ahead of nearest challengers Warley after six wins from six and have conceded only 30 points in those games – an average of just five a match.

They face a key period early in the new year, visiting third-placed Stourport before a Midlands Junior Vase semi-final at home to local rivals Clee Hill.

Director of rugby Andy Black said: “The team didn’t really get out of the blocks and the conditions didn’t help either side but a win is a win and we kept a clean sheet too.

“Winning all of our games in 2018 was one of our targets and we have achieved that so we are looking forward to 2019. There is work to do but we have finished the year in a good position.”
