Rugby Union: Counties halt Tide.
Manager Rob Udwin was delighted with the performance at Shawnigan Lake School, which sets the players up for next Friday's tougher encounter against Rugby Canada Super League All Stars in Edmonton.
Udwin said: 'We achieved all our objectives and managed to give all 26 players in the squad 40 minutes rugby. But it's given us some selection headaches ahead of next week.'
The first try came in the 15th minute from outside centre Malcolm Roberts, who finished off a break up the middle by Tom Barlow --and the second followed 12 minutes later from Kris Fullman.
Coventry scrum-half Sean Perry scored a third try to give the Counties a 19-0 interval lead.
Counties switched freely at the start the second half before James Moore kicked a penalty goal for the visitors.
Chris Lawrie scored a try for the visitors, converted by Stourbridge fly-half Craig Jones. A final try by Dave Strettle completed the victory.
