BELPER Rugby Club first XV took over the leadership of the Midlands 4 East (North) division after a big home win over Nottinghamians.

After another slow start, Belper began to get a hold of the game and tries in the first half came from Jack Hibberd, Ross Gray and Simon Carter.

Simon Jones added two conversions and a penalty to put the black and whites 22-0 ahead at half-time.

Belper carried on in the same manner in the second half and secured the bonus point with a try from Merv Holmes.

They then added three more tries, all coming from Ross Gray.

This was another good win for Belper who travel to face East Retford this Saturday. The Notts side are unbeaten at home so far and a tough game is obviously in prospect.
