KIDDERMINSTER Carolinas ran out comfortable winners over Nuneaton as Arthur Morgan bagged five tries.

KCs won 35-7 last Saturday as they kept pace with leaders Kenilworth heading into the festive break.

Carolians kicked-off with a strong wind at their backs and were quickly into their stride, a speculative kick by Nuneaton was gathered and fed to left wing Arthur Morgan, who rounded his opposite number and raced over from 30 yards out to score.

The conversion failed but good field position was gained from kick-off thanks to an excellent kick by Andy McClellan. The ball was turned over by KCs and transferred to Morgan who scored under the posts before brother Freddie Morgan added the extras to make it 12-0.

An excellent 40 metre penalty kick by Freddie increased this lead to 15-0 before captain Mike Protheroe and Arthur Morgan's third to make the lead 25-0 at the break.

Nuneaton kicked off the second half and the ball was knocked on by KCs to produce 15 minutes of relentless pressure from the visitors, who were rewarded with a try under the posts, the conversion was successful and the deficit reduced to 25-7.

At this stage of the game, now playing into a strong wind, Kidderminster were finding it difficult to get into the opposition half despite Nuneaton unable to capitalise on their territorial advantage. With 12 minutes of the game remaining KCs won turn over ball at the line-out inside their own half, the ball was swiftly transferred through several pairs of hands finally ending with Arthur Morgan scoring his fourth try wide out on the left increasing the score to 30-7.

With minutes remaining, Kidderminster won a scrum on their 22 metre line, this was picked up by No. 8 Rob Phillips, a couple of excellent inter passes freed Phillips who raced 60 metres before being hauled down just short of the line. Fast ball was provided from the ruck, a superb pass from Freddie Morgan to Arthur allowed him to score his fifth to wrap up proceedings.

KCs will now return to action at Old Laurentians on January 5.
