Earlsdon lost out to a good Barkers Butts team
by 30 points to 15 but Earlsdon can take credit from the defeat as they put some good phases together. Two tries from No 8 Gerry Fairbrother, both from driving line outs, kept Earlsdon in the game until the final quarter.
Injuries to 2nd row Olly Lee then Fly Half Rory Fisher meant for the third week running Earlsdon had to change the team around with back row Loz Gittins going into the midfield.
It was an all round improvement for Earlsdon and it’s only a matter of time before they start climbing the league.
Our opponents are a good team and will surely be in the top three teams at the end of the season.
