DESPITE being handed the league points because Wellesbourne were unable to field a front row, the two sides played out a one-sided friendly which was won convincingly 54-0 by Rugby Welsh.

Both teams wanted to play a game on Saturday and a 12-a-side friendly took place which Welsh dominated from start to finish.

Welsh were in control of the game throughout but credit must be given to Wellesbourne who never let their heads drop throughout the contest.

The visitors were ahead in the opening minute when Angus Wilson made a blindside run which saw him score the opening try.

The Welsh backs looked dangerous with the ball with Shaw and Buckland creating a number of chances.

Wilson, James Buckland, Guy Shaw, Adam Bond and Andy Higham scored further tries in the first half with conversions being added by both Wilson and Shaw.

The second half saw Wellesbourne defend well but further tries by Ross Timms and Lewis Ramoo, which were converted by Shaw, completed the Welsh victory.

This Saturday Welsh take a break from the pitch as they are entering into the spirit of the World Cup by being a part of the Rugby fanzone.

The players and the rest of the club will in the fanzone from 12pm.
