STOURBRIDGE built on a good away win last week with a convincing victory against Otley in National League Two (north).

Stour's first home game of 2020 began well with plenty of attacking possession that was rewarded on six minutes with a try for Afeafe Haisila which was converted by Callum Morris.

Despite being reduced to 14 men just two minutes later after a yellow card for Reece Beddows, Stour continued to look dangerous and with the wind at their backs piled on the pressure.

Beddows made amends with a try on 24 minutes after a ruck and Morris again converted.

The home pack was dominant and fans' favourite Jack Lea added another try from a rolling maul on 36 minutes.

Following a turnover Nigel Mukarati made the ground before passing to Dan Rundle who sprinted over the line on the left wing for the bonus point try on the stroke of half time to make the score 26-0.

If Otley thought they would benefit from the breeze after the restart they were to be disappointed.

Stour's speedy Mark Harrison collected the ball and charged from inside his own half to touchdown on 43 minutes.

Joe Heatley also ran home from deep on 49 minutes after a clearance kick and Morris added the extras.

Despite looking a beaten side Otley continued to seek a spark and pressed forward but struggled to find a way through until the 66th minute when Henry Roberts bagged a scrappy try which was converted by Ben Smith.

On 72 minutes Dan Rundle gave the home fans something to cheer after the ball was moved neatly along the back line from a scrum and he collected his second try of the day.

Otley pressed forward and Gavin Stead crossed the whitewash for a consolation try after a scrum on five metres, but Stourbridge were to have the last laugh.

Just a minute later Morris intercepted a pass on the visitor's 22 metre line and galloped in under the posts.

His conversion registered the last points of the day and the game finished with a final score of 50-12.
