SHEFFIELD Tigers called it ‘a marvellous advert for rugby.’
Last week’s game was fingernail crunchingly close - they beat Bromsgrove 42-41.
The super-close National 2 North contest starred Jon Buchanan, who excelled in defence and attack. The only downside was a neck injury to Bromsgrove’s Tom Warren.
The victory keeps Tigers in equal fourth equal spot in the league and Tom Outram’s 17 points sees him on top of the league kickers with 97 points.
On Saturday, Tigers journey south to Herefordshire to face Luctonians.
