Grove 2nds, captained by Roger Sevier given the absence of regular, brilliant, inspirational leader Jon North, won a closely contested match against Redingensians 4ths on Sat 25th September. Due to Grove 1sts being awarded a walkover a strengthened 2nd team were able to overhaul Redingensians 4ths 17 : 38 at Reading. Readingensians made a real fight of it and the scores progressed evenly up to 17 : 17 but thanks to determined play Grove were able to pull away in the second half.
Grove's scorers were :-
Jamie Burns (3 trys)
Alex Morgan (1 try)
Simon Peel (1 try)
Roger Sevier (5 conversions + 1 penalty).
