Rugby Union: PertempsBees beaten 29-17 by Oxford.

PertempsBees failed the first of their two university challenges this month when they were beaten 29-17 by Oxford at Iffley Road last night.

The Bees had eight trialists, including Moseley full-back Stephen Nutt, in their squad and lacked cohesion, playing their best rugby in the first half to produce the first of two tries for No 8 Duncan White.

Oxford pulled back three points before the break with a penalty from Coventry-based fly-half James Whittingham and their backs took control after No 8 Ben Durham went over for a 44th-minute try.

Oxford centres Ross Lavery (2) and Ali James sliced through from long range with White breaking the sequence when he drove over from a five-metre scrum.

The Bees, who play Cambridge University on October 19, finished with a flourish with Aaron Takarangi scything through for an unconverted try after a break from fly-half Mark Woodrow.
