Five wins from five for Old Coventrians

Ben Tyler 30th Oct, 2019

OLD Coventrians maintained their perfect record at the top of Midlands Three West (South) after a 36-0 defeat of visitors Old Leamingtonians.

The league leaders had to battle the elements as well as their opponents to ensure a fifth win from their opening five games, following substantial rainfall which prompted a low-scoring first half.

Joe Talamini was sin-binned to leave Old Leams a man light, but the visitors defended superbly.

However, just before half time, the hosts went in front courtesy of a penalty from full-back and captain Alex Telfer.

The three-point lead was extended in the second half when Tom Clitheroe scored the first try of the game, converted by Telfer to put Coventrians 10-0 up.

Five minutes later, a quick-tap penalty sent Scott Parry in behind the defence to cross the try line, again converted by Telfer to establish a commanding lead.

Corey Joy added an unconverted try, prior to two converted scores from winger Josh James, who ensured a bonus point victory.

After a week off, Old Coventrians return to action at second-placed Rugby St Andrews on Saturday November 9 (2.15pm).
