Telford Raiders 66 Swindon St George 6 

Rugby League West Midlands Conference
 
RESULT: Swindon St George 6 Telford Raiders 66
 
St George Ruby club Swindon v Telford
St George suffered defeat at Telford this weekend but, as with last week’s home loss by Coventry, the score line does not tell the whole story.

The first half was a fairly even affair, Swindon’s Greg O’Brien crossing over to seal a fine personal performance which later earned him the ‘Visitors’ Man of the Match’ award.

However the home side’s superior fitness, together with their much more extensive experience in Rugby League took its toll in the second period, the Raiders putting themselves out of sight with a series of eye-catching tries.

Swindon coach Geoff Norris was keen to take positives out of the game, pointing out that heads never dropped, even during the home side’s golden second half period.

“Every one is determined to learn from this and with several League debutees in their number," said Swindon coach Geoff Norris.
 
"The squad have already proved themselves to be quick learners, And once we get the fitness levels right, which we will, our skills will really come to the fore. Somebody soon is going to feel our full force!”

Next week St George take a break from the pressures of Conference football to entertain Southampton Spitfires at Highworth Road in a ‘cross region’ challenge.
