Rugby Round-Up: Week 31

Welcome to this week’s rugby round-up, where we’ll be taking a quick look at some of the biggest games for Scimitar teams as we near the end of the domestic season at all levels.  

It’s off to Yorkshire for the first game, where Rotherham were in for a must-win match against Billingham to secure National 2 North and promotion to the third tier. There was plenty to play for on both sides as Billingham were desperately seeking the point they needed to guarantee a spot in National 2 North next season.  

After an even first half, Rotherham narrowly led 26-19 at half time. Rotherham took control and dominated the ball in the second half to secure a win. Despite the win Billingham touched down for another try to secure their spot next season, resulting in both teams leaving happy. With the game finishing 40-26 in the Titan’s favour, it meant that promotion was secured for the first time in 21 years. Having won 25 out of their 26 games this season, it bodes well for the team, who will look to have another successful season and take the game to National One. 

Llandovery also clinched the regular season league title, finishing with a 62-13 win at Church Bank to go to the top of the Welsh Premiership ahead of the play-offs. Despite some strong defense from Bridgend, they just couldn’t match the Drovers’ tempo as Llandovery knew what they needed to do.  

With the regular season done, it’s time for the Drovers to reflect on their fine form, winning 22 out of their 24 games and tallying a total of 117 tries. To make the win even sweeter, Llandovery made history as it was the first time they had finished top in the history of the competition. They will now aim to regain focus ahead of their play-off semi-final fixture against Cardiff RFC on Saturday the 4th of May. The aim? A place in the Indigo Premiership final a week later. 

Lastly, we head over to Chipstead, who were in action in the Counties 2 South Plate quarterfinals against Old Wimbledonians. It was a narrow game for the two teams as they both tested their opponent’s defence. With the game approaching the 80th-minute mark, it was clear that neither side would find the winning try, with the game eventually coming to a close as a draw. However, despite the draw, Chipstead will progress to the semis as they prepare to face Harrow at Wood Lane on Saturday the 4th of May. 

That’s it for this week’s round-up. Don’t forget to follow Scimitar Rugby for all the latest results, news, competitions, and chatter!
