BROMSGROVE continue to blaze a trail on top of Midlands One West when they put bottom of the table Malvern to the sword with a resounding 54-5 success.

The Boars had effectively wrapped up the game by half time after building a commanding 42-0 advantage.

But head coach Dan Protherough was less than impressed with Bromsgrove's second half show and admitted his side 'went off the boil'.

He admitted: "It's hard to be critical because the game was effectively won by half time.

"But in the second half, we didn't get out of the blocks.

"We'd talked before the game about doing a professional job on sides, but to be honest, it never really happened as we kept missing chances.

"It was a funny game because Malvern started really well, but we still managed to score four tries in a 20 minute spell without really firing!

Tries arrived from wingers Sam Bastock and Tom Sadler, scrum half Will Harris, loose head prop Ethan Priest, No.8 Drew Harper, full back Josh Holt who bagged two and centre Ed Spalding, while Will Harris kicked the remaining points.

Bromsgrove have no fixture this Saturday but Protherough confirmed: "They'll be no let up in our preparation. It gives us the chance to look at a few things which get neglected at times, such as the more technical stuff".
