Head coach Nick George praised Clevedon RFC's resolve after overcoming two first half injuries to earn a third successive league victory with a 25-17 win over Barton Hill at Coleridge Vale on Saturday.

Tom Thie's double and a fourth try of the season from scrum-half Danny Harris led the way, while Ethan Thomas kicked ten points. 

George was pleased to see his side come away with the points, but challenged them to continue their revival at high-flying Cheltenham in a fortnight.

“Barton Hill are always a tough, physical side and they made us work hard for the win," he said.

“We lost Jack Crew and the experience of Oli Jones in the first half to injuries, but it was good to see that the boys adapted and showed enough resilience to take the four points.


“It was great to see the evergreen Tom Thie cross the line for a brace of tries, alongside young Danny Harris.

“It was great to see a big crowd at the Vale again to watch both the firsts and second teams win this week. The support is always appreciated and it was nice to get a win for them.”
