RUGBY LIONS: First league derby against Rugby Welsh

Rugby Lions v Rugby Welsh
Rugby Lions v Rugby Welsh

Lions win 43-5

Rugby Lions were given an ideal introduction on their return to the RFU league structure with a very good crowd in attendance to witness a really promising performance from Lions and a committed display from an impressive Rugby Welsh team.

The bald fact of the score will have satisfied the Lions club while Welsh will rightly take a lot of credit from the fact that, far from folding in a second half they began already trailing 33-0, they only lost it 10-5.
