[02 MAY 99] COVENTRY BEARS PRESS RELEASE
Coventry Bears RL 40
Birmingham Bulls RL 34

Coventry Bears Rugby LeagueCoventry Bears Rugby League continued their impressive run of summer conference scalps, when the overcame the Birmingham Bulls at Coundon Rd on Sunday night. This completed a trio of wins over local rivals which has also seen them defeat both Worcester saints and Leicester Phoenix. A closely fought contest saw the Bears clinch the victory in the final moments when the excellent Ben Shepherd powered through the Birmingham defence from twenty metres to complete his hat-trick of tries.

This game quickly became a battle of the forwards, with Coventry’s Tony Wright, Alan Robinson and Colin Pereira proving to be too strong for the opposition as they outfought them in both attack and defence, their hard work rewarded when Wright rumbled his way over for a try in a thrilling second half.

South African, Alex Van Der Walt revelled in his role as scrum-half, a tough tackling hard running performance earned praise from Spectators and his team-mates, a try late in the first half, no more than he deserved for all his action game.

Other tries for Coventry were scored by Rob Lowe and James Cathcart, with Cathcart yet again deadly with the boot.

The Bears next fixture is away at the St Albans Centurions on 15 May. The next fixture at Coundon Road is on 23 May when they entertain Stafford.
