RUGBY UNION - Alcester score 12 tries in 83-point haul against Kings Norton

ALCESTER RFC ran in 12 tries against Kings Norton last weekend with Glyn Smith and Elliot Evans both scoring hat-trick’s in an 83-12 rout.

A mixed Alcester side made the short trip to Hopwood and dominated proceedings throughout.

In the opening quarter, Smith opened the scoring, and both Evans and Ross Gard were on the board with two conversions from Oli Hayes.

Kings Norton responded when their fly-half scored a great individual try, chipping over the last of the defenders before being the first to gather the ball and score over the line.

However, Phil Birks and Jack Green both added tries to Alcester’s tally before the break with the visitors holding a commanding 33-7 lead at the interval.

The frustrations of the opposition boiled over as they started arguing amongst themselves as several players had to be separated and asked to leave the pitch.

Alcester struck again in the second half with Smith and Evans both scoring their second tries of the afternoon before substitute Alex Chiles took the away side over the half century mark.

Youngster Freddie White added another try after racing down the far wing before Smith added an excellent touchline conversion.

Evans and Smith then both rounded off their hat-tricks before Kings Norton scored a pair of consolation tries against the run of play.

The visitors scored an excellent team try, that started with Mikey Brown who offloaded to Birks and then to Ed Gough to score and covert his own try before Brown scored the last try of the match.

Alcester finish their league campaign away at Woodrush on Saturday, April 23.
