EVESHAM colts returned to league action with a 51-24 win at Bournville after an extended break due to floods and unsuccessful cup duties.

The artificial surface suited Evesham's running game but they did not have it all their own way.

The visitors scored first through Jasper Martin but were soon pegged back by two tries from a competitive side.

But Tom Hedworth, Jonny Tarring, Jake Smith and Kieran Downey dived over to put Evesham 25-17 up at half-time.

Evesham took control in the final quarter through fly-half Ruben Ibbotson with further tries for Toby Turner, Patrick Atkins, Smith, Euey Breach and James Carsberg.

Tarring landed three conversions.

Backs Tom Gough, Ciaran Wright, Ash Symonds and Euen Campbell impressed as did forwards Ben Walters, Sam Rogers, George Bell, Ben Cross, Tom Rowland, Robbie Kumar, Johnny Stevens and Ollie Hyett.
