Tamworth Tigers are heading for the Handicap Cup final following their victory over Coventry College, where they will meet Tile Hill Trojans 1 after their win against Leamington Spartans.
Tigers brushed aside College in their semi-final at Rawlett after a sensational start saw them add 17 to their 20-15 handicap without College troubling the scorers. The visitors then recovered but the damage was done and Tigers go in search of cup glory following their promotion last season.
Westwood Rhinos secured victory in their Round Robin game at Nuneaton Predators 1, pulling back a ten point handicap in Jack Ford’s final match before leaving for a spell of duty in the Falklands, and Grizzlies had to climb back from twenty down as they hosted Team Rebels at The Bridge. Grizzlies managed to get their noses in front at the end of the third quarter before Rebels resistance collapsed. Eagles meet Trojans 3 tonight – Friday.
