Ivel Barbarians 36, Morganians 13

TWO Royston Grimstead tries were in vain as Morganians still search for their first win of the season.

They matched their opponents in the forwards but the home side had the upper hand in the backs.

Grimstead’s unconverted try made up Morganians only scoring of the first half, as they trailed 15-5.

In the second half, Barbarians scored three converted tries to Grimstead’s second try and a penalty from Ben Winter as Morganians fell to a 36-13 loss.
