London Welsh (0) 11
Rugby Lions (7) 7
[CHELTENHAM & GLOUCESTER CUP]

The Welshmen could find themselves out in the cold when they play Lions at Webb Ellis Road.

They might find that the key to their dressing room is lost and that they have to spend the interval standing outside.

It would only be what they did to Rugby in this match and Lions’ director of coaching Geoff Davies was critical of the London side’s attitude.

The Welsh retreated to the warmth of their dressing room while the Lions players had to stand on the touchline in the freezing cold.

As a tactic is worked because Rugby led 7-0 until the 55th minute when the Welsh finally scored. Andy Gallagher scored Rugby’s try in the 15th minute after a break by Sid Hopkins and Martyn Davies kicked the conversion.

Lennie Woodward responded with a 55th minute try for the Welsh and Andy Lee added two penalty goals.
