Towcestrians 24 - 33 Peterborough Lions

Towcestrians were just edged out by a powerful Peterborough Lions side at Greens Norton road on Saturday, in a hard fought battle, three line out drives and two interception tries were enough to get the visitors over the line, but Tows will go away from this game thinking it was one that they could and should have won.

From the off Tows were on the front foot driving at Lions and scored through Liam Wilkinson, Ben Roe converting from the touchline, quickly followed by great hands to release Matt Yuill who crossed for a try and Tows were 12 - 0 up after ten minutes.

Lions monster pack got them back in the game, driving two line out penalties over for tries to bring the scores level, the half finishing with Tows just failing to cross for their third, knocking on with the line beckoning.

Tows scrum anchor Peter Gowler was forced to leave the field and the dominant Peterborough pack scored their hat-trick of push overs from another line out drive, Tows responded with a try of their own, prop Michael Bagby scoring on debut,Tows then became the architects of their own downfall, a nothing kick from Lions seemed to present Tows with no problems but in attempting to slip the ball to Yuill, Matt Bodily presented the chasing Lions winger with a perfect interception to score, Tows again responded with a fired up Bodily making amends for his earlier error, finishing the forwards hard work to score under the posts and close the gap to 2 points.

Lions found themselves down to 13 men, with a yellow card for influential ex-Saints player, Darren Fox, and not satisfied with 2 losing bonus points Tows looked to take advantage spreading the ball wide from their own line, only to see the final pass intercepted again for a cruel end to what was a fine game.

Elsewhere around the Tows, the 2nd XV continued their fine form by taking care of Dudley Kingswinford 7 - 30 away from home and Tows 3rd XV suffered a rare defeat going down 24 - 13 away at Kettering 2nd XV
