Wins for OLs, Newbold and Lions

It was a good week for the top two teams in Midlands 2 West (South) Old Laurentians and Newbold in their away games.

Leaders OLs won 22-16 at Droitwich and Newbold beat Spartans 67-17.

Rugby St Andrews have been left to reflect on what might have been as they lost 23-12 at local rivals Long Buckby in Midlands 3 East (South).

But it was a better day for Rugby Lions at Atherstone, where they won 22-3 to stay top of the table.

Understrength Rugby Welsh struggled at Alcester, with only 14 men and were beaten 36-0.

Reports from all these games will be in Thursday’s Advertiser.
